When you look at the pedigree of the stars who made up American Bandstand, it’s hard not to be impressed. Not only did this music influence a generation, and help in its own way to create the singular history of rock and roll, but it was wildly successful on every imaginable front, as well.

In all the stars produced 16 gold records, 41 Top 40 hits, and an astonishing 75 chart hits, as well. These are songs that continue to be part of the public consciousness like “One Fine Day,” “He’s So Fine,” “Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Yellow Polka Dot Bikini,” “Sealed with a Kiss,” and “Let’s Dance.”
