‘Jingle Bell Rock’ is an American popular Christmas song that was first released by Bobby Helms in 1957 (after it was recorded in October 1957). It has received frequent airplay in the United States and Great Britain during every Christmas season since then. ‘Jingle Bell Rock’ was composed by Joseph Carleton Beal (1900–1967) and James Ross Boothe (1917–1976). Beal was a Massachusetts-born public relations professional and long-time resident of South Ocean Avenue in Atlantic City, New Jersey, and Boothe was an American writer in the advertising business.
Other artists that recorded this song were Max Bygraves in 1959 with the Eric Rogers Orchestra which peaked at Number 7 in the UK Top 30, and Chubby Checker and Bobby Rydell in 1962 which reached Number 40 on the UK chart.
