I've seen the record-breaking touted by everyone except Billboard themselves (and considering Tool's "Fear Inoculum" got a Billboard headline for being the longest Hot 100 song ever after it peaked at #93, official word here is conspicuous in its absence). The #1 listing on Billboard.com says "All Too Well (Taylor's Version)," and my understanding is that the track of this name is a fairly faithful re-recording of the 2012 song, while the one with "(Ten-Minute Version)" in the title is the extended cut.

(Note: Even if it is the ten-minute version, Tool still has the duration record for Hot 100 singles.)
Billboard combines the 5- and 10- minute versions:

“All Too Well (Taylor’s Version)” was released on Red (Taylor’s Version) Nov. 12 on Republic Records, via two versions on the set: its 5-minute, 29-second and 10-minute, 13-second versions, both of which are combined into one listing on Billboard‘s charts. (The song’s original 5-minute, 29-second 2012 version is tracked separately.)
The best thing that Neil Armstrong ever did, was to let us all imagine we were him.

The day the music died, indeed.
We would also have accepted, "So it's bye bye [Miss] American Pie".

Thanks for the clarification. The article plays havoc with my phone browser and prevents me from seeing the whole thing. That distinction gives it a Maris-esque asterisk in my mind.

Co-signed. I feel the same way about the multipokle remixes of "Old Town Road".

duration record? do you mean longest time in the Hot 100? If you do, isn't that currently led by Blinding Lights?

In case anyone is wondering about the shortest #1, I believe that is "Stay" at 1:38

Hers is the longest #1. Tool's is the longest in the Top 100.

This is one I really could see with a tribute category, or just more clues over the next few months. He was a towering figure in American theater. Note that his reputation was built as a lyricist and composer - "scribe" isn't really the word.
