I have never had anything good to say about this group. In my life there isn't anyone that has overplayed their pathetically weak discography more than The Beach Boys. I hate seeing how any lame Forth of July ceremony or major sport celebration or the opening of a new hip surgery clinic has to include a rendition of 'California Girls'. Makes me want to take a power drill to my skull. Really. Fuck off Beach Boys. When a song is so easy to remember that I can't get it out of my head, I know it's crap. Just because their music is iconic doesn't make it or them worthy of inclusion in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, which they entered in 1988.
Once again I am ahead of the curve.
"Here’s a group that suffers greatly by comparison. Their fans continue to compare them with the Beatles and that’s just not fair. What they didn’t steal from Chuck Berry, they stole from the Four Seasons. They started to approach credibility when their front man, Brian Wilson, developed drug induced paranoid schizophrenia and started having original thoughts. But the band kicked him out and spent the next 30 years capitalizing/trashing what was left of the “Beach Boys” name. I have more class than to knock Brian for his mental illness. But I don’t mind knocking Mike Love for being a flat out narcissist."
