The Twist

318. Chubby Checker

Easily the most famous singer from the 60’s who is not in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame; many may find it puzzling that the man associated with the iconic “Twist” is not in the Hall of Fame, let alone the recipient of a nomination. Chubby Checker did have more hits than the Twist, but they were all following the same dance pattern, and many were just watered down versions of the Twist. Easily a man with a firm lace in Rock and Roll history, he may have to settle for that accolade as rarely does the Hall look at artists considered as one dimensional as Chubby Checker.
