Didn't the two sides of Don't Be Cruel/Hound Dog chart independently of each other?

Yes, but that was the way all double-sided hits used to be listed, at least until the early 60s. At the time I wondered how they figured it out. In the US I think they calculated juke-box plays and DJ spins as well as actual sales but I don't know about the UK.

The Specials one is almost an EP really, because there was another track on the B-side, "Why?".

Don't think that used to happen in the UK, it was just overall sales - so "We Can Work It Out" / "Day Tripper" would appear on the chart listings. The danger here was that you split your radio plays.

Things are complicated by downloads, where a physical single may be categorised as a double-A side, but only one of the two tracks counts towards its chart placing when downloaded (unless the two are bundled together online too). This is currently the case with Leona Lewis' latest single. So one side of the physical single is in the chart under its own name only due to download sales.

SR - you're right of course - it's the best triple-tracker of the 80s praps.
Also regarding hip-hop b-sides there's plenty of ace ones but the one I can see in my racks right now is Wu Tang Clan 'Protect Yr Neck/After The Laughter COmes Tears' which is a doozie in anyone's book.

I just haven't bought a hip hop single for many years, probably since about 1992. Long way from Eric B & Rakim - seems to have become albums music, maaan.

Good call there about the Specials.

Also:

The Smiths - "This Charming Man/Jeanne", amongst loads of others they did.

I'm astonished that no-one - in particular Hobbes - has mentioned...

The Cure - Let's Go To Bed'/'Just One Kiss' yet. I'm particularly thinking of the 12".

Apologies if it has been mentioned - I couldn't see it if it has.

MARRS - Pump Up The Volume/Anitina (The first time I see her dance).

this was always promoted as a double 'A' side but I can't remember anyone actually playing Anitina as a preference!

Was 'Silly Thing'/'Who Killed Bambi?' a double 'A' side?

I don't know, but I know that "My Way" and that song sung by Ronald Biggs was a double a-side.

The M/A/R/R/S thing (which Gambaccini and the Rice Brothers were decidedly sniffy about) was at 4AD's insistence - probably really AR Kane's insistence, because although M/A/R/R/S was theoretically a collaboration, "Anitina" was mostly them while "Pump Up The Volume" itself was mostly Colourbox.

"Hello Goodbye" / "I Am The Walrus" might count. But while the B-side is one of the greatest things ever recorded, the A-side is relatively substandard. Nevertheless, "I Am The Walrus" became the only song to be at numbers 1 and 2 simultaneously without ever being released as an A-side.
