In 1959, Hank Ballard & the Midnighters released the original version of "The Twist" as a b-side. Later that same year, Chubby Checker released a cover which became a hit. Hundreds of twist records were released around the world, with the craze peaking in 1962. It quickly began to fade in the wake of the British Invasion until a "twist revival" briefly took hold in the 1980s.
