As part of the Bee Gees, the late Robin Gibb's impression on the Billboard Hot 100 will be felt forever.

The trio racked up nine Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 singles -- more than any other group in history save for the Beatles (with 20) and the Supremes (12). Of their chart-topping hits, their biggest is "How Deep Is Your Love," which reigned for three weeks in 1977 and spent 33 weeks on the chart -- the group's longest-running single.

On Billboard's compilation of the Bee Gees' top 20 Hot 100 singles, "How Deep Is Your Love" is joined by the act's 14 other top 10 singles, including such massive No. 1s as "Night Fever," "Stayin' Alive," "How Can You Mend a Broken Heart" and "Jive Talkin'."

The Bee Gees' initial chart hit came in 1967, with "Now York Mining Disaster 1941," which climbed to No. 14 and became the first of 43 Hot 100 hits for the group. They most recently charted in 1997 with "Still Waters (Run Deep)," a single from their Still Waters album. The song topped out at No. 57.

Additionally, Robin Gibb's chart success wasn't limited to songs that the Bee Gees recorded. He also co-wrote, with his bandmate brothers Barry and Maurice, Yvonne Elliman's Hot 100 No. 1 "If I Can't Have You." With brother Andy Gibb, the trio authored his third No. 10, "Shadow Dancing." As recently as 2001, Robin Gibb's name appeared in the Hot 100's top 10: Destiny's Child's cover of Samantha Sang's No. 3 hit from 1978, "Emotion," reached No. 10.

This ranking of the Bee Gees' biggest Billboard hits is based on actual performance on the weekly Billboard Hot 100 chart. Songs are ranked based on an inverse point system, with weeks at No. 1 earning the greatest value and weeks at No. 100 earning the least. To ensure equitable representation of the biggest hits from each era, certain time frames were weighted to account for the difference between turnover rates from those years.
