It's a given that as time marches on, the legends of rock 'n' roll past will be swept under the rug by flavors of the month, but few probably saw this coming: Mariah Carey has officially surpassed Elvis Presley in number-one hits on the Billboard charts thanks to her new single "Touch My Body." The song, her 18th number one (quick, name the other 17—without using Wikipedia!) makes her second only to The Beatles, who have 20, and it's likely that she'll close that gap even further soon with her next single featuring T-Pain. And then? Armageddon, my friends.
