Half a century has passed since the Beach Boys first got together, with bitter rifts, lawsuits and some really good music defining a seemingly tragic career arch.
But now they're back, stopping by "Late Night" to harmonize with Jimmy Fallon (who was years away from being born when the Boys were already on their Surfin' Safari) and performing a stellar show at New York's Beacon Theater.
The New York Times review of a recent concert says the band is still capable of putting on quite the show. "The Beach Boys are in their 60s and 70s now, and it showed," writes Jon Pareles. "But memory and a knowing backup band supplied what mortal performers cannot."
It's an exciting time for fans of The Beach Boys. Will you be checking out Brian Wilson, Mike Love and the band this summer?
Their new studio album, "That's Why God Made the Radio," will be out June 5 on Capitol/EMI. The album will feature 11 new songs, including the title cut. You can watch the band perform the title track off that album in the video above. Be sure to remember their classic hits and performances, available in the gallery below.
