* HeyItsThatGuy:
** Music/PaulMcCartney makes a guest appearance on the ''Smiley Smile'' song "Vegetables"... chomping on celery.
** Ricky Fataar, otherwise known as [[Music/TheRutles Stig O'Hara]], joined the band for a few years in the seventies.
** That's Music/StevieWonder on harmonica in "I Do Love You", and Music/RingoStarr on drums in "California Calling"!
** Would you believe John Stamos, aka Jesse from ''Series/FullHouse'', doing lead vocals on their version of "Forever"?

** In the other direction, the Beach Boys wrote and performed the original version of "Little Honda". However, it was the Hondells who had a Top Ten hit with the song.

** "Little Girl (You're My Miss America)" and "I'm So Young", to the point most people can't name their original artists.[[labelnote:*]]They're, respectively, Dante and his Friends (under the title "Miss America"), and The Students. The former was co-written by Herb Alpert, of Tijuana Brass fame.[[/labelnote]]

* 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 '''massive understatement'''. 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 on what he just heard 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''. Yeah, we can't make that up.

To say this speech is infamous is a '''massive understatement'''. Have you ever seen footage from a wedding where the speech giver is completely drunk and acts like a total jerk the whole speech? 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 on what he just heard 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?

** "Kokomo" was and continues to be slammed by critics and hardcore fans alike, but it didn't stop it from becoming a #1 hit back in 1988 and from being one of their most well know songs overall.

* MagnumOpus: ''Music/PetSounds''.
** Recently, (as was Brian's intention) ''[[Music/{{Smile}} [=SMiLE=]]]'' has supplanted it so some extent for a good number of fans. Although it needs be said that many still view ''Music/PetSounds'' as a truer Magnum Opus as it is actually a complete, cohesive work.

* MisattributedSong: You have to feel sorry for [[JanAndDean Jan and Dean]]. Even though they preceded the Beach Boys, they were ultimately overshadowed by them, and even worse, many of their hits are often erroneously assumed to be Beach Boys songs.

** What's more, their pre-1973 era can itself be divided between the earlier surfing/cars/girls hits and the more sonically and thematically ambitious (and less commercially successful) material from ''Pet Sounds'' onward. The former accounts for most of the group's airplay on oldies radio and attracts audiences to the Mike Love-led touring band, while the latter is the basis for [[CriticalDissonance most of the group's critical acclaim]] and the inspiration for indie-rock revivalists like the Elephant Collective bands.
