Good Vibrations: Revisit The Beach Boys’ 1960s Style

by MR Magazine Staff

The pleasant surf rock melodies of California were at the heart of the hit songs from American band The Beach Boys. Born out of Hawthorne, California in 1961, the band’s original lineup included brothers Brian, Dennis and Carl Wilson, joined by their cousin Mike Love and Al Jardine. Inspired by the rock ‘n’ roll of the 1950s as well as jazz and doo-wop, The Beach Boys were at the forefront of the popular California Sound.

Embodying a wholesome image, the band cemented its place in pop history with songs such as Good Vibrations, God Only Knows, Surfin U.S.A. and I Get Around. The Beach Boys sold over 100 million records worldwide, earning thirty-six Top 40 hits in the US, in addition to four number-one Billboard Hot 100 singles. Embracing the casual fashions of the time, the boys are a great example of classic style that resonates with modern times. From plaid Pendleton board shirts and the essential crewneck t-shirt to the bomber jacket, The Beach Boys wore it all. See more at The Fashionisto.
