The Beach Boys first rode the waves of success in 1961 with their regional debut hit “Surfin.” By 1966, the band had become one of America’s top pop groups after it released 11 top-10 singles in five years. It rose to super stardom with hits like “Fun, Fun, Fun,” “I Get Around,” “Help Me Rhonda,” “California Girls,” “Good Vibrations” and its biggest hit, the 1988 release “Kokomo.”

The Beach Boys were honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award at the Grammy Awards and by VH-1, which named the 1966 album “Pet Sounds” the No. 3 album in rock ‘n’ roll history.
