Quick, in terms of chart longevity name one of the most successful musical artists of all time. I'm talking about the number of years between first charted record and most recent charted record.
What about 54 years? Not too many artists can top that one.
The answer is of course three furry little rodents, the brainchild of Ross Bagdasarian.
2012 marks their 54th year of hitting the charts. From the 1958 debut of "The Chipmunk Song" to the current chart run of two Chipmunk's Christmas albums, The Munks have been scoring chart hits a very long time.
With the three live action Chipmunks movies grossing over a billion dollars and a new animated series set for 2012 don't look for the streak to end anytime soon.
