NEW YORK, April 20 (UPI) -- The cast of the American television show "Glee" has become the first act to place 200 entries on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, Columbia Records said.

The stars of the music-themed series first appeared on the U.S. record chart in 2009 with their version of Journey's classic "Don't Stop Believin'."

In late 2010, the "Glee" cast topped The Beatles' record of 71 entries on the Hot 100. The ensemble marked another milestone in 2011, when their 113th entry beat Elvis Presley's record of 108 entries, officially making them the record-holder for most entries in Billboard's 54-year history.

Contributing to the "Glee" cast's landmark 200 entries is their recent version of Gotye's "Somebody That I Used to Know," which sold 170,000 tracks in two weeks.

To date, "Glee" has sold 43 million songs and more than 12 million albums worldwide.
