** Not to mention the cover versions of various surf-rock instrumentals on their first couple albums.

** Not to mention the cover versions of various surf-rock instrumentals on their first couple albums. One of interest is their cover of "Moon Dawg" on the ''Surfin' Safari'' album. The original version, recorded by the Gamblers, was produced by Nick Venet, the same who produced the early Beach Boys albums, which probably influenced the song's inclusion on the album. Coincidentally, the pianist for the Gamblers happened to be one Bruce Johnston...

Added DiffLines:

** "Finders Keepers" also sounds a lot like the [[Music/FrankieValliandtheFourSeasons Four Seasons]] -- the contrast between Brian's falsetto and Mike's bass voice is very similar to the contrast used in many of the Four Seasons' hits.

Numerous artists have cited them as a major influence, including Music/AnimalCollective, Music/TheRamones, Music/AliceCooper, Music/EltonJohn, {{Panic at the Disco}}, {{Weezer}}, The Music/FlamingLips, basically the entire indie rock genre, and Music/TheBeatles themselves.

** The second, ''An American Family'', is a big improvement, a high-budget two-parter that starts out promising but goes downhill the moment they make [[http://www.soundonsound.com/sos/oct04/images/smile17brianvandat.l.jpg Van Dyke Parks]]'s hair [[TheyJustDidntCare strawberry blond]]. The latter film, conversely, glosses over Dennis' prodigious drug use and self-destructive lifestyle, apart from his association with CharlesManson.
** A third movie entitled ''Film/LoveAndMercy'', with Creator/PaulDano and Creator/JohnCusack as the younger and older forms of Brian. Unlike the last two, ''Mercy'' goes out of its way to be [[ShownTheirWork as accurate as possible]].

* {{Biopic}}: Two of 'em: ''Summer Dreams'', a cheap, exploitative nightmare of a poorly-cast inaccuracyfest that focuses on the antics of drummer Dennis Wilson, and ''An American Family'', a high-budget two-parter that starts out promising but goes downhill the moment they make [[http://www.soundonsound.com/sos/oct04/images/smile17brianvandat.l.jpg Van Dyke Parks]]'s hair [[TheyJustDidntCare strawberry blond]].

* {{Biopic}}: Two Currently three of 'em: them.
** The first,
''Summer Dreams'', is widely considered a cheap, exploitative nightmare of a poorly-cast inaccuracyfest that focuses on the antics of drummer Dennis Wilson, Wilson. It also suffers from a soundtrack that features no actual Beach Boys recordings, with a soundalike band performing the actual Beach Boys songs, and a song that kind of sounds like Dennis' composition "Forever," but isn't. Also, David Marks, who briefly replaced Al Jardine in the early '60s, is not featured in that film.
** The second,
''An American Family'', is a big improvement, a high-budget two-parter that starts out promising but goes downhill the moment they make [[http://www.soundonsound.com/sos/oct04/images/smile17brianvandat.l.jpg Van Dyke Parks]]'s hair [[TheyJustDidntCare strawberry blond]].

* NonindicativeName: "Surf's Up" - [[WordSaladLyrics Whatever the song's about]], it sure as hell ain't surfin'. [[note]]WordOfGod apparently indicates that it's about a man at the opera who loses faith in humanity and hallucinates about the past, then finds God in the song the children sing.[[/note]]
** Why does their discography contain an album called ''Shut Down Volume 2'', but no ''Shut Down Volume 1''? Because the original ''Shut Down'' wasn't a Beach Boys album at all, but a various artists compilation... Albeit one that included some Beach Boys songs.

** ''15 Big Ones'' does indeed contain 15 tracks, but it's a regular studio album, not a GreatestHitsAlbum like the phrase "Big Ones" would suggest.
