Beach Boys Music Style
The Beach Boys music is characterized by its blend of vocal harmonies, guitar-based rock, and elements of pop and folk music. The band’s early music was heavily influenced by the surf culture of Southern California, as well as the vocal harmonies of groups like The Four Freshmen and The Hi-Lo’s. This surf rock sound is evident in early hits like “Surfin’ USA” and “Surfer Girl.”

This album included hits such as “God Only Knows” and “Wouldn’t It Be Nice.”
The Beach Boys also had a string of hit songs that explored themes of teenage love and heartbreak, such as “In My Room” and “Don’t Worry Baby.” These songs showcased the band’s harmonies and Brian Wilson’s songwriting skills.
