Iconic artists from yesteryear are taking a major beating when it comes to the Billboard charts. Recently Lil Wayne surpassed Elvis with 109 singles on the charts, topping the King's 108. Now, Mumford & Sons are the first band to tie with the Beatles for most songs on the Billboard Hot 100 concurrently.

The English folk rock band currently have six songs from Babel—the fastest selling rock album in four years—on the Billboard Hot 100 chart simultaneously. They're the first to achieve such a feat since the Beatles did 48 years ago. (Today also marks the 50th anniversary of the Beatles' "Love Me Do," FYI).

According to Billboard, the current list of hit singles off Babel on the charts include:

"I Will Wait" at No. 57
"Babel" at No. 60
"Lover's Eyes" at No. 85
"Whispers in the Dark" at No. 86
"Holland Road" at No. 95
"Ghost That We Knew" at No. 94
