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 Labor Day weekend 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.

* AbortedArc: The title of ''Stars and Stripes Vol. 1'' implies that there was supposed to be a volume 2. There never was.

** According to TheOtherWiki, ''Summer In Paradise'' had minimum contributions (mostly or entirely vocal) from Carl Wilson or Al Jardine (and, of course, none at all by Brian Wilson, who was in litigation to remove himself from Dr. Eugene Landy's services). The album was entirely driven by Mike Love, Bruce Johnston and Terry Melcher on an early version of Pro Tools digital recording software, and the bass and drums were entirely synthesized.

*** The band name in general became this trope as the name "Beach Boys" reflected on their surf rock music and their post-''Pet Sounds'' output didn't have much to do with beaches or surfing.

** Al Jardine somehow sounds even ''better'' in his seventies than he did as a young man. The gravelly tone that he had in his voice on songs like "Help Me, Rhonda" has been replaced with a clean, soaring baritone. Here's a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eDZgl7H recent performance]] of "Sloop John B" to give you an idea of how good he still sounds.

* TheLeader: For the band's most successful period, it was Music/BrianWilson, but when he went into seclusion when his personal demons became a problem, Mike Love took the helm and it's stayed that way ever since.

** Mike Love's voice has weathered the storm that is aging a little better than Brian's, though considering his singing style was never as strenuous or taxing as Brian's that's not too surprising.
** Bruce Johnston's voice has gone largely unchanged for the most part except that it now sounds a little deeper and less nasally. This actually works to his advantage whenever he sings "Disney Girls (1957)", as his voice now sounds much more soothing, giving a very lullaby-esque feeling to it.
