The Beach Boys
The Beach Boys are an
American rock band that
were formed in Hawthorne,
California in 1961. Initially
rising to become the most
popular surf rock band in the
U.S. during the early 1960s,
the band's mastermind and
chief songwriter, Brian
Wilson, took The Beach Boys'
music to ever increasing
levels of sophistication and
artistry between 1964 and
1966. This resulted in the
band becoming one of most
popular international acts
of the decade and arguably
the only American group to
effectively challenge the
success of The Beatles in
terms of mainstream appeal
and critical recognition.
Following a nervous
breakdown, Brian retreated
from the spotlight and
relinquished his role as
musical leader, leaving the
other band members to
continue on through the
1970s, 1980s, and 1990s
with Brian as an inconsistent
participant. In the 21st
century, The Beach Boys
continued as a touring band
under the stewardship of
original member, Mike Love
until the return of Brian
Wilson, Al Jardine, and early
member David Marks in 2012.

The Beach Boys' discography
from 1961 to 1984 was
originally released on the
vinyl format, with the 1985
album, The Beach Boys,
being the group's first CD
release. Over the years, The
Beach Boys catalogue has
been released on reel-to-reel,
8-track, cassette, CD,
MiniDisc, and most recently,
as music downloads from
a number of digital media
vendors. The discography
of the group consists of 29
studio albums, 4 live albums,
34 compilation albums, and
82 singles. The release dates
and sequence of The Beach
Boys albums in the UK up to
Pet Sounds differ significantly
from the original U.S.
