** Bruce Johnston had the daunting task of taking Brian's place as the bassist and pianist after Brian quit touring. He managed to do well, though, and became a valued member of the band. Plus, he wrote "Disney Girls (1957)", which is certainly worthy of respect.

* 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, you want to know why Mike was acting so moody that night? He explained years later that he '''''forgot to meditate that day'''''. {{Not making this up|Disclaimer}}, folks.
** The speech was so notorious it became a meme that very night! Elton John and Bob Dylan both noted in their subsequent speeches "Thank God Mike Love didn't mention me." Mike Love also took shots at TheBeatles, but was later filmed having a friendly chat with RingoStarr, so some wonder if the whole thing was in jest. Then again, [[NiceGuy it's Ringo]], and it takes a lot to get him riled up.

** "Darlin'" is sadly going to spend a ''long'' time being known as "the Shamy song" due to it being featured on an episode of ''Series/TheBigBangTheory''. Just look up any upload of the song on YouTube and look at the comments.

** "Darlin'" was acknowledged as being pretty damn catchy in an episode of Series/TheBigBangTheory when Sheldon keeps humming the tune without remembering the name of the song before [[https://youtu.be/ux3INzSAgAE?t=2m24s finally remembering it.]]

* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: In spades. When most people think of The Beach Boys, they do not think "one of the greatest and most influential bands of the last 50 years" as much as they think "oldies group".
* SignatureSong: "Good Vibrations".
