† For decades, "Billboard" Magazine counted "Don't Be Cruel" and "Hound Dog" as separate #1 hits. Subsequent changes to the magazine's methodology combined the songs into one entry (as with all double-sided hit singles), thereby reducing Presley's total from 18 to 17. However, the magazine's longtime statistician Joel Whitburn continues to credit Presley with 18 number ones.
