The Beach Boys - Songs


ABOUT

Beach Boys

The Beach Boys are the best known surf rock band of all time. The original key members included brothers Brian, Carl (December 21, 1946 - February 6, 1998), and Dennis Wilson (December 4, 1944 - December 28, 1983), and the group had some personnel changes over the years.

The Beach Boys' numerous hits include "Surfin' U.S.A." (1963, 1974 re-release), "I Get Around" (1964), "Help Me Rhonda" (1965), and "Good Vibrations" (1966). Dean Torrence provided lead vocals for "Barbara Ann" (1966). They continued to chart many songs throughout the 1970s, 1980s, and (on the Adult Contemporary charts) most of the 1990s. Brian and Carl Wilson also recorded solo.

The Beach Boys were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1988. Songs from before 1975 with links to song clips are given below.
