The Beach Boys are back and there’s a video series of them giving you a listen of tracks from the new album and then they mention a band like The Shins or Foster The People and throw to a clip of the aforementioned artist. It’s really quite strange. It’s like someone from the label went to a retirement home and told the adorable old men that they had to talk about these hip new bands so they could try and get a new generation of fans and they’re all like “Fuck you, we wrote Pet Sounds!”
Anyways, if you want to check it out you can see the whole playlist here at: ‘The Beach Boys Talk: That’s Why God Made The Radio’

Some of my friends at high school used to sing this to me. They were completely joking…
