Prior to its creation, Billboard published four singles charts: "Best Sellers in Stores", "Most Played by Jockeys", "Most Played in Jukeboxes" and "The Top 100" (an early version of the Hot 100). These charts, which ranged from 20 to 100 slots, were phased out at different times during 1957 and 1958. Though technically not part of the "Hot 100" chart history, their data is included by Billboard for computational purposes, and to avoid unenlightening discrepancies (i.e. "Buddy Holly's debut single in the Top 40 was released posthumously"). For the Weezer song, see Buddy Holly (song). ...


In a prominent example of the magazine's retroactive methodology, Elvis Presley's "Don't Be Cruel"/"Hound Dog" single is credited with an 11-week run atop the Billboard chart in 1956, because it topped the "Best Sellers in Stores" and "Most Played in Jukeboxes" lists for that length of time. However, Presley's run lasted just eight weeks atop the "Most Played by Jockeys" chart, and seven weeks in "The Top 100"'s number one slot. Artists are credited with their most favorable placements on any of the four charts, which is why Billboard and its statistician Joel Whitburn list 17 number one singles, for a total of 71 weeks, in 1956. Joel Carver Whitburn (born November 29, 1939 in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin) is an American author and music historian. ...

Additional Hot 100 achievements

  • In the same week of April 1964 that The Beatles held the top five chart positions, they also had another nine singles scattered on the chart, bringing their total to fourteen singles on the Hot 100, a record unlikely to be surpassed at any time in the conceivable future.
  • Many songs have topped the charts, dropped down, and then returned to number one. The only number one song to climb to the top spot three separate times during its chart run is "Le Freak" by Chic. The single was a number one hit for one week before being replaced, became number one again for two weeks, was supplanted for two weeks, and then returned for an additional three weeks, making six weeks in all.
  • The record for the most separate chart runs for the same single is nine, and is held by Bing Crosby's "White Christmas". Re-released annually by Decca Records, the song was still on the chart in January 1955, as well as 1955 through 1962. The song also had twelve previous runs on Billboard's pre-rock charts, from 1942 to 1945, and 1947 to 1953. For singles first released during the rock era, the record is five separate chart runs, and is held by three other Christmas songs: David Seville and the Chipmunks' "The Chipmunk Song", which charted for five consecutive years between 1958 and 1962, topping the Hot 100 during its original 1958 run; Bobby Helms' "Jingle Bell Rock", which charted in 1957, 1958, and 1960 through 1962; and the Harry Simeone Chorale's "Little Drummer Boy", which is the only single of the rock era to reach the top forty for five consecutive years, between 1958 and 1962. Beginning in 1963, Billboard consigned these and other seasonal rereleases to a separate Christmas chart, ending their strings of appearances on the Hot 100. ("Best Sellers in Stores" and "Most Played in Jukeboxes" charts)
  • James Brown holds the record for most Hot 100 entries (ninety-nine) without a number-one song.
  • Creedence Clearwater Revival holds the record for the most number-two hits (five) without ever hitting number one.
  • The oldest artist to hit number one on the Hot 100 is Louis Armstrong in 1964 with "Hello, Dolly!" at the age of 62. The oldest woman to top the Hot 100 is Cher with "Believe" in 1999 at the age of 53.
  • The youngest artist to chart on the Hot 100 is Jordy, a four-year-old from France whose "Dur Dur D'Être Bébé" (roughly, "It's Tough to Be a Baby") reached number fifty-eight.
  • The oldest artist to chart on the Hot 100 is comedian George Burns, whose "I Wish I Was Eighteen Again" began its 10-week chart run the day before his 84th birthday. This 1980 release peaked at number forty-nine. Before that, Burns' most recent charting record had been a spoken word comedic routine with his wife and partner Gracie Allen in the summer of 1933.
  • Elton John had at least one top forty hit every calendar year from 1970 (beginning with "Your Song") until 1999 (with "Written in the Stars", a duet with LeAnn Rimes). (However, this methodology credits one late 1995 hit that extended into the January 1996 chart, and another single whose chart run covered both 1997 and 1998.) Whether John's streak lasted 26 or 30 consecutive years depends on which criteria are considered; either figure would be the longest in chart history.
  • Michael and Janet Jackson are the most successful siblings in Billboard Hot 100 history, with 23 solo number one singles (Michael with 13 and Janet with 10).
  • The artist with the longest overall span of hits on Billboard's chart is Elvis Presley, who debuted with "Heartbreak Hotel" in February 1956; a remixed version of "Rubberneckin'" charted in late 2003, more than 47 years later. For non-posthumous artists, Frankie Valli first charted as one of the Four Lovers in 1956, and had his final placement with The Four Seasons in 1995. If pre-1955 charts are considered, Nat "King" Cole's Billboard career extended from November 1943 until his studio-spliced "duet" with daughter Natalie in 1991 ("Unforgettable"), some 48 years later. ("Best Sellers in Stores" and "Most Played in Jukeboxes" charts)
  • The Beatles and Usher are the only two artists to have the year-end number-one and number-two songs, with the former having "I Want to Hold Your Hand" and "She Loves You" in 1964, and the latter with "Yeah!" and "Burn" in 2004.
  • Usher holds the record for the most weeks spent at number one in a calendar year. In 2004 he spent twenty-eight weeks at number one with four different singles. This represents 54% of 2004's chart weeks.
  • The Bee Gees claimed the number one spot for 25 of 32 consecutive weeks beginning the last week of 1977, either as writers, producers, and/or backing vocalists on singles by Yvonne Elliman, their younger brother Andy Gibb, and on three singles credited to themselves.
  • High School Musical was responsible for a number of chart distinctions. Andrew Seeley had Hot 100 debuts with his first two entries ("Breaking Free" and "Get'cha Head in the Game") in the same week, making him the first artist to begin a chart career with two simultaneous debuts. This achievement was retroactive, as Seeley's name was absent from both singles until their third week on the charts. In addition, Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens matched The Beatles with four Hot 100 entries within two weeks. The Beatles also had six chart debuts within three weeks; Efron and Hudgens unofficially match this total as members of the "High School Musical" cast. In February 2006, High School Musical generated the most simultaneous Hot 100 entries from any album, with nine songs in the Hot 100 simultaneously (five of them in the Top 40). All tracks charted strictly on the basis of digital downloads, as none of the songs received any radio airplay.
  • When Lisa Loeb hit number one with "Stay (I Missed You)" in 1994, she became the only artist to top the Hot 100 before being signed to any record label.
  • The number one hit with the shortest running time is Maurice Williams and the Zodiacs' "Stay." Its running time is one minute, 37 seconds.
  • "November Rain" by Guns N' Roses (1992) stands as the longest-running song to reach the top twenty of the Billboard Hot 100, at a length of eight minutes, fifty-seven seconds. The shortest charting record of the rock era was "Little Boxes" by the Womenfolk, which was exactly one minute long. The 1964 single reached number eighty-three.
  • The instrumental artist with the most Hot 100 hits is Herb Alpert. Thirty of his thirty-five charting singles are without vocals. He is also the only artist to reach number one with both a vocal ("This Guy's In Love With You" in 1968) and an instrumental ("Rise" in 1979).
  • Studio drummer Hal Blaine appeared on the most number one hits, thirty-nine in all, between 1961 and 1976.
  • Steve Alaimo has had the most singles to chart on the Hot 100 (nine) without ever having reached the Top 40.
  • The only artist to have two separate singles chart for a single week in the number one hundred position is Jimmy Beaumont. He had a solo placement with 1961's "Ev'rybody's Cryin'," and another in 1975, with "Where Have They Gone" (the latter by Jimmy Beaumont and the Skyliners).
  • Mariah Carey is the only artist to have a number one hit in every single year of any decade, the 1990's.
  • Paul McCartney is the only artist to have separate top-ten singles as a solo act, as half of a duo, as a third of a trio, as a fourth of a quartet, and as a fifth of a quintet. (Graham Nash also charted in these five configurations, but only in the top forty.)
  • Elvis Presley had the most double-sided hits, in which both the A-side and the B-side were charting singles (52). Presley also had the most consecutive top-ten hits, with thirty. ("Best Sellers in Stores" and "Most Played in Jukeboxes" charts)

Billboard Hot 100 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (2416 words)
There are several component charts that contribute to the overall calculation of the Hot 100.
As many Hot 100 chart policies have been modified over the years, one rule always remained constant: songs were not eligible to enter the Hot 100 unless they were available to purchase as a single.
A new chart, the Pop 100, has been created by Billboard to answer criticism that the Hot 100 was biased in favor of rhythmic songs, as throughout most of its existence, the Hot 100 was seen predominantly as a pop chart.
