It's extremely unlikely ever to happen again. The Beatles had singles out
on four different labels in April 1964, as the catalog numbers show. The
very success of the Beatles changed, and probably destroyed, the
circumstances which allowed them to monopolize the top five back then.
Contracts are different in the post-Beatle era, and the Beatles' work in
making the album into a self-contained art form (rather than a bunch of
songs to pad out the two hit singles) contributed to the gradual decline of
the single.

Impossible for someone else to repeat the achievement? No, not impossible.
But lots of things that are possible never happen. I don't think anyone
else will ever capture the entire top five like the Beatles did.
