The number was originally written as "Do The Bop," but by the time it was ready to be recorded, the dance called the Bop was already history. Dick Clark suggested a quick title change to "At The Hop," and the rest really is history! The single was originally released on the Singular label (S-711) before being picked up and released on the ABC-Parampunt label (9871). Not only did Danny And The Juniors have a number 1 smash with the song, but Elvis recorded it informally on a home tape recorded whilst in Germany doing his army stint. The recording has not been officially released.
