Chubby Checker was the unrivaled king of the rock & roll dance craze; although some of the dances his records promoted -- the Pony, the Fly, and the Hucklebuck -- have long since faded into obscurity, his most famous hit, "The Twist," remains the yardstick against which all subsequent dance-floor phenomena are measured. The song is a cover of a 1958 Hank Ballard B-side and rocketed to number one in 1960 and in late 1961; the only record ever to enjoy two stays at the top more than a year apart.
