You can capsulize most pop music acts by reciting how
many hits they’ve had and how many millions of albums they’ve sold. But
these conventional measurements fall short when you’re assessing the impact
of The Beach Boys. To be sure, this band has had a torrent of hit singles and
sold albums by the tens of millions. But its greater significance lies in the
fact that it changed the musical landscape so profoundly that every pop act
since has been in its debt.
