* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: In the choruses of "Bucket T", they can clearly be heard singing [[ClusterFBomb something else that rhymes with "bucket"]]. The cover by Ronny and the Daytonas (of "G.T.O." fame) makes it even more obvious.

Their full names were William Jan Berry (19412004) and Dean [[EmbarrassingMiddleName Ormsby]] Torrence (1940 ), and they first met playing high school football together in Los Angeles. Berry first came onto the pop scene with 1958's "Jennie Lee", recorded with Arnie Ginsberg as "Jan and Arnie" due to Torrance getting drafted into the U.S. Army Reserve. Berry and Torrance scored their first hit as a duo with "BabyTalk" in 1959, and kept singing while going through college at UCLA (unlike the Beach Boys). However, tragedy struck in 1966 when Jan crashed his car a short distance near Dead Man's Curve in Beverly Hills, suffering brain damage but retaining his genius-level intelligence, but the duo had a comeback in the early 1970s. Berry died in 2004, but Torrence continues to tour and give interviews.

* OvershadowedByAwesome: Despite being one of the preeminent surf-pop acts in their time, they're nowadays remembered mostly as a footnote in the history of the Beach Boys, [[MisattributedSong for whom they are often confused]]. It should be noted that while Jan and Dean (Jan in particular) were talented songwriters in their own right, many of their biggest hits were written at least in part by Brian Wilson - meaning someone trying to acquaint themselves with Wilson's surf music songwriting repertoire would have to listen to a lot of Jan and Dean!
