Photo Courtesy - ABC News(SUNNYVALE, Calif.) -- Yahoo! Music's ChartBeat column reports that American rock band Journey's 1981 hit "Don't Stop Believin'" has just passed the four million mark in digital downloads.  That makes it the only song released before the year 2000 that has sold that many copies.  In fact, no other song released before 2000 has even hit three million in download sales.

The song's surge in popularity when it comes to downloads can be attributed to its use in any number of movies and TV shows.  In 2007, the song was featured in the series finale of HBO's The Sopranos.  More recently, it appeared in the very first episode of Fox's Glee in May of 2009, as well as in the show's season finale three months ago.
