Well that's sad, because there is a lot of great music out there.
Anyway, I offer my apologies for not following my own rules!! John Fogerty's "Rockin All Over The World" was of course a 70's track, not 50's, and so must be withdrawn from my list.
I think most of us count the rockin' 50's as going up to 1962, because the music changed radically thereafter. I personally always take it up to December 1962, which was the last month that Lonnie Donegan's last hit was in the charts. The Beatles first hit "Love Me do" charted in October 1962, but their major breakthrough hit, "Please Please Me" charted in Britain in January 1963. Nothing was the same after that.

Lonnie was a seminal figure in British pop in the 50's, and for me the 50's ended when his chart career ended. He was one of the few British artistes pre-Beatles to get a US hit, (Rock Island Line), and he majored in Leadbelly songs. However, his skiffle style was emulated by many many young hopefuls in pop music in Britain, including the Beatles.

Anyway, to replace the removed cover, I offer you :-
"Twist And Shout" by The Beatles (orig. The Top Notes 1961)
