California Rock:
In their early-sixties
hits the Beach Boys
virtually invented
California rock.

celebrated an
idealized California
teenhood of surfing,
driving and dating.
His productions
were a glossy,
perfectionistic, ultra
blend of guitars and
vocal harmonies,
with their experiments

The Beach Boys have
sold over 65 million
records worldwide

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

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. releases.
