“The Twist” is a song written and originally performed by Hank Ballard and the Midnighters as an R&B hit in 1960. Chubby Checker’s cover version of the song, released in September 1962, was a worldwide smash hit, topped charts throughout the world, including the Hot 100 in the United States.

However, it did not sell well outside of Detroit where it was popular among African Americans. In early 1960, Pittsburgh DJ Dick Clark began playing a remix of “The Twist” which included additional instrumentation provided by bandleader Cal Tjader. The new version became an instant sensation with white audiences nationwide and helped to break down racial barriers in pop music at a time when such barriers were still very much entrenched.

In September 1962, Philadelphia-based Cameo-Parkway Records released Checker’s cover version of “The Twist.” The single quickly rose to the top of both the pop and R&B charts, becoming one of the biggest hits of all time in the process. Checker’s recording features him shouting out dance instructions to listeners during its chorus (“You gotta twist baby / Just like this”), something that would become one o f the song’s signature elements over time.

With its catchy beat and easy-to-follow instructions, “The Twist” quickly caught on as a dance craze sweeping across America (and eventually around the world). Young people flocked to nightclubs and dancehall s to strut their stuff to Checker’s tune; even President John F Kennedy was spotted doing twisting with his wife Jackie at Washington D..C.’s Palisades Park! The popularity o f the dance led to numerous imitators releasing their own versions o f the song (including ones from established artists like Elvis Presley), but none could quite match Checker’s original for sheer exuberance or mass appeal.”
