The Beach Boys
Beginning their career as the most popular surf band in the nation, by 1966 the Beach Boys had become America's pre-eminent pop group, the only act able to challenge (for a brief time) the overarching success of the Beatles. From their 1961 debut with "Surfin," they constructed the most intricate, gorgeous harmonies ever heard from a pop band. They also proved one of the best-produced groups of the '60s, exemplified by their 1966 peak with Pet Sounds and "Good Vibrations." Their post-1966 material is often maligned, but the truth is they continued to make great music well into the '70s. ~ John Bush
