  "All Shook Up" recorded by Elvis Presley was released in March 1957. The single topped the U.S. Billboard hot 100 on April 13th and stayed there for eight weeks. It also topped the Billboard R&B chart for four weeks, becoming Presley's second single to do so, and peaking at #3 on the country chart. It is certified twice platinum by the RIAA.

Future "Last House on the Left" actor David Hess, using the stage name David Hill, was the first to record the song and release it a few weeks before Elvis on Aladdin Records, titled "I'm All Shook Up".

According to Peter Guralnick in his book "Last Train To Memphis" he wrote that Elvis thought "All Shook Up" was a good phrase for a refrain. For this he received a co-writing credit, his last. Elvis himself, during an interview in October 1957, said; "I've never even had an idea for a song. Just once, maybe. I went to bed one night, had quite a dream, and woke up all shook up. I phoned a pal and told him about it. By morning, he had a new song, "All Shook Up".
