Name That Band - The Beach Boys

A California band called the Pendletones recorded a song in 1962 entitled "Surfin."

After the records were pressed, it was discovered that a young promotion worker had changed the band's named to more obviously tie it in with the surfing craze and other California surf bands.

Although the band was furious, the limited budget meant the labels could not be reprinted and the wrong name stuck.

And that's how the Pendletones became the Beach Boys.
