** The Beach Boys did not write "Barbara Ann"- it was a cover of a song by a band called The Regents. Nor did they write "Sloop John B", which was actually a reworked version of a West Indies folk song.

* ArchivePanic: ''Twenty-seven'' studio albums, a massive supply of unreleased songs and outtakes, hours of studio sessions, a frankly absurd amount of ''Smile'' material, and an endless deluge of illuminating footage of concerts, interviews, promos, and other assorted segments. And people keep discovering new stuff all the time.

* BreakawayPopHit: "Kokomo" provided the band with a very unexpected #1 hit in 1988 upon being featured in the TomCruise movie ''{{Film/Cocktail}}''.

* FunnyAneurysmMoment: The 1964 AlbumFiller track "Cassius Love vs. Sonny Wilson" features Mike and Brian playfully insulting each other and mocking each other's singing styles. Not so funny in light of the real life hostilities that would eventually develop between the two.

* GrowingTheBeard: ''The Beach Boys Today!'' marked the point when they moved from simple pop-rock songs to something more sophisticated, a transition that would reach its fullest flower with ''Pet Sounds''.

* VindicatedByHistory: Despite having a hit single with "Sloop John B", ''Music/PetSounds'' was not a big seller initially. Years later it would be recognised as one of the greatest pop albums of all time.
** You can say that their albums between ''Music/PetSounds'' and ''Holland'' have been vindicated, as they didn't get much notice upon release, but has become incredibly popular since.

* RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: Mike Love and Al Jardine on ''Music/{{Holland}}''; Mike penned "Big Sur", and Al penned "The Beaks of Eagles" and "California". All three of these songs are sublimely beautiful, melancholy, and poetic. The same can be said about Bruce Johnston with "Tears in the Morning" from Music/{{Sunflower}} and "Disney Girls (1957)" on ''Music/SurfsUp''.

** ALL of their voices, actually. All 6 (or 9) of them were very good lead singers, but it's the combination of their voices, blending perfectly in some of the best vocal harmonies in the history of music that makes the Beach Boys' music.

** "California Girls" has become very popular again recently due to a KatyPerry song with a very similar title.

* {{Squick}}: The song "H.E.L.P. Is on the Way" provides a fair amount of this, as I'm sure no one wants to imagine Mike Love stark naked in front of a mirror. It only gets worse as the band begins to describe stomach pumps and enemas.

* NeverLiveItDown: [[https://youtu.be/oZSAQX2uuUY?t=227 Mike Love's acceptance speech]] at the 1988 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony. To say this speech is infamous is a '''''MAJOR''''' '''understatement'''. Ever seen footage from a wedding where the speech-giver's completely drunk and acts like a total jerk the whole time? This is pretty much what Love's speech will remind you of. Mike Love was a total savage in this speech, acting really angry for no reason ''at all'' and taking shots at the fellow inductees. Carl Wilson was so horrified that he handed his award over to one of the performers and said "Our career is over". Oh, and the reasom Mike was acting so moody that night? He explained years later that he '''''forgot to meditate that day'''''. {{Not making this up|Disclaimer}}, folks.
