On August 6th, 1960, Chubby Checker appeared on US TV show American Bandstand and performed ‘The Twist.’ The song went to No.1 on the US chart and again 18 months later in 1962. It is the only song to go to the top of the charts on two separate occasions.

1988, “The Twist” became popular once again, due to a new recording of the song by The Fat Boys featuring Chubby Checker. This version reached No. 2 in the United Kingdom and No. 1 in Germany.
