Influences on The Beach BoysJohnny Otis
The Four Freshmen
Chuck Berry (The Beach Boys’ “Surfin’ USA” mimics Berry’s “Sweet Little Sixteen” almost note for note. Berry was even awarded a co-writing credit for the song following litigation, although the royalties he received have always been a point of contention for Brian Wilson, who wrote the song’s lyrics.)
