    The picture (in case it wasn't clear) is the internet's rendition of my face when I heard this bit of news. The headline basically says it all; the cast of the hit TV series Glee, about a high school glee club, has scored 75 US top 100 hits to date, passing the Beatles' longstanding non-solo-act record of 71. In a cruelly ironic twist, several of those hits were covers of the Beatles, including "Hello Goodbye" and "I Want to Hold Your Hand."

    James Brown, with 91, and Elvis, with 108, still lead the show in US top 100 hits. Glee, currently in its second season, shows no signs of slowing down, though, so enjoy those records while they stand: the show has had guest appearances by stars like (most recently) Britney Spears and has sold 2.8 million soundtrack albums and 11.5 million digital downloads. Paul McCartney, who seems to bear no grudge against Glee for breaking his record, has even expressed interest in appearing on the show. Glee airs Tuesdays at 8pm Eastern time.

    Whatever. At this point, I've started taking signs of the musical apocalypse in stride. -peter menniti
