Chubby Checker amazingly continues his assault on our weekly charts. Last October, his "Knock Down the Walls" reached No. 1 on Hot Dance Singles Sales, Checker's first No. 1 on a Billboard list in 45 years -- since "The Twist" enjoyed its second run atop the Hot 100 in 1962. The new song also crossed over to the Adult Contemporary chart and is receiving renewed attention at the format after its re-launch at radio this summer.

Stream or download "Knock Down the Walls" below, and be sure to visit Billboard.com's special microsite celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Hot 100 chart.
