I know the Beatles released alot, Day Tripper/We Can Work It Out, Penny Lane/Strawberry Fields Forever are all I can think of but I imagine there are earlier examples then them. I'd wikipedia or google it or something.

A "double A-side" is a single which has two featured songs. This practice was introduced by The Beatles in 1965 for their single released simultaneously with Rubber Soul, "Day Tripper" backed with (b/w) 'We Can Work It Out," as the band and their label, Parlophone Records, found both songs to be equally marketable, and decided not to relegate one to B-side status.[citation needed]

Some singles have also been designated double A-sides in retrospect, such as Elvis Presley's 1956 "Don't Be Cruel" b/w "Hound Dog"; this was done in retrospect because both sides became chart hits independently. In fact[citation needed], "Hound Dog" was the B-side of the single as originally released. During the late 1970s, Dolly Parton released a number of double A-sided singles, in which the A side was released to pop radio, and the B side to country.

Does it have to have gone straight in at No1, or just be the first No1?
