Elvis Presley (1935–1977) was an American rock star and one of the biggest cultural icons of the 20th Century. Among his best-known songs are "Hound Dog," "Don't Be Cruel," "Suspicious Minds," "All Shook Up" and "Jailhouse Rock."

He has sold millions of records around the world for over 60 years and has influenced practically everybody to come along since.

There is some real-person fiction featuring Elvis. Baz Luhrmann's 2002 musical biopic Elvis, starring Austin Butler, caused a renewed interest in fanworks about him. Elvis's music is also commonly featured in fanvids, songfic, and other fanworks.
