A couple Beach Boys covers that are good for different reasons:





The Beach Boys version of "Barbara Ann" is also a cover.

That could've been a winner!!

I had no idea it was a cover. Here's the original, released in 1961. BB version was 1965.

I forgot how amazing the kids at this music school are. Some really incredible covers. Seriously, watch them all...you'll be glad you did. Then you'll probably want to go to their YouTube page and watch the other 150 or so.

I have a couple other ideas for fun tourneys to do. I don't think they've been done before... The only tourneys I remember were best comedian and best lead female vocalist. Were there other GRB tourneys?

Other ones I've considered... Best SNL skit, best one hit wonder. Or for Rad, best obscure cover?
