Because of moments like this I'm a Beach Boys fan. Nothing is impossible. In any and every possible way... This time in a good way.  angel

If Darian can sing it why can't Brian's band do it on the tour?

Also, when the touch passes someday in the future the Fendertones with the support cast from this recording would get my vote!

This is the best cover/re-creation of a classic Beach Boys track I've ever heard in my life.

Incredible indeed.  I almost fell out of my chair when I heard Mike's voice.  Great reveal and great decision to hear him in there before seeing him.  That moment of "is that? yes it is!" is perfect.

These guys never cease to amaze me.  Seeing the great musicians from all three groups involved just makes it that much sweeter.

I'd love to hear any complete performances of All Summer Long, The Beach Boys Today!, Summer Days (And Summer Nights!), Pet Sounds or SMiLE! by this group.

I really liked their video of Sloop John B with Scott and John.  But THIS...wow.  Truly amazing.

Wow, that was really cool.

Props to everybody who worked on this, coordinating all those recordings across multiple states and continents must've been tough, but this is one of the best covers of any song I've ever seen.

On our way through this "backstage" maze, Bruce joined up with the group and said hello, singing "It Never Rains in Southern California" and joking with some of the older ladies. I'm not sure if they knew he was a Beach Boy or simply an enthusiastic elderly gay gentleman.

A Great video of a beautiful cover.

And what a thrill to see Mike and Bruce appear there at the end.

It all makes me wish (for maybe the millionth time) that the Beach Boys would have performed this number during the C50 tour.  And who knows, maybe one day, while everyone is still here, the Boys can get together and do it (yet) again.

And maybe even include "Surf's Up" in the set list this time.

Nice work, but I'm insane and still prefer their take on "The Monkey's Uncle." Man I love that song! I would probably explode if I heard that live.

 But good job, people. Excellent job weaving it all together, Edwin. The strings were a superb touch. Dedicated musicians doing their best on some of the greatest music ever composed has to make ya grin. So enough with the Cousin-based drama on this thread at least!

They have - many times. Why not anymore? I have no idea.

It is too hard for Brian to sing it these days, if sources are to be believed.

It's total badass-ness when that bass vocal enters. I did an aural double take. Then my first inclinations were confirmed when I saw Mike Love appear.

Masterful cover. And the amount of involvement from actual Brian and Beach Boys touring band members is unbelievable.

Congrats and thank you!

Wow, fantastic job!

But if I were to offer one criticism, the lead vocals on the fade seemed "in the background" too much. But maybe that was just the video.

The Mike version of the Beach Boys did doing Surf's Up on their recent tour of the UK.

So where are all the Mike haters at on this one?

Uncalled for. Just enjoy.

And...

To label this a cover is close to insulting: it's on a totally different plane. It's more than a cover, beyond even a re-imagining. Call it an invocation, if you will, an extended moment of transcendence. Time stopped, God smiled.

Nice clip.

Like us, they are all just a bunch of fanboys at the end of the day. Who here wouldn't want to join them?

I watched this early in the day, and I just watched it again. It's SO good.

And on a totally unrelated note (not really), boy I am missing Carl today. He would have loved this.

Another treat from the Fendertones.

PS, I also find "Monkey's Uncle" super hot, hotter than AF's version, which for a Mouseketeer is sayin' somethin'. (goes to lie down in the air conditioning)
