Contrary to what one might expect, The Beach Boys have one of the longest and most fascinating stories of any band in recent history. Before the band even got started professionally, they had been singing together for years, occasionally playing at school functions under various names such as Carl And The Passions (later the title of one of their albums). They got their actual start basically out of Brian Wilson's home; one labour day week-end in 1961; the Wilson brothers' parents went on a business trip to Mexico, and while they were gone, they recorded their first song, "Surfin'" (turns up on the album ''Surfin' Safari'' in 1962), in the music room (converted from the garage). After that hit the local radio and was a small national hit, they signed to Capitol Records in 1962 and quickly climbed the charts as the premier SurfRock band of the nation. They are often credited for popularizing the California culture throughout the country.

** ''Music/TheBeachBoysChristmasAlbum'', released at the height of the band's popularity in 1964, was a huge success, featuring one side of original compositions (including the classic hit "Little Saint Nick") and a side of Christmas standards performed InTheStyleOf Brian's idols The Four Freshmen (complete with orchestral backing by that group's arranger, Dick Reynolds). Probably the most popular "rock and roll" Christmas album after Creator/PhilSpector's.

* SurfRock: Probably the artist most associated with the sub-genre -- even though their sound is more Music/ChuckBerry/Phil Spector meets the Four Freshmen than Music/DickDale. Not to mention less than 10 percent of their entire discography being surf music.

Added DiffLines:

* VocalEvolution: More like "vocal devolution" in the case of Dennis Wilson. While still a capable vocalist in the 1970s despite his smoking, drinking, and drugging, he was pretty much croaking out his words as he spoke to the crowd and sang "You Are So Beautiful" at the band's Fourth of July concert in 1983, just a few months before his drowning death.

** "Surfin' U.S.A." came so close to a ChuckBerry tune (specifically, "Sweet Little Sixteen") that Chuck sued the Boys.
