In September 2008 "The Twist" topped Billboard's list of the most popular singles to have appeared in the Hot 100 since its debut in 1958, an honor it maintained for an August 2013 update of the list. He also popularized the Limbo Rock and its trademark limbo dance, as well as various dance styles such as the fly.

Homey don`t quit. What else are you gonna do? It`s like those guys in the cartoon they get up in the morning, check the clock and fight all day and after it`s over they check the clock and go home. That`s how it goes.
