Chuck Berry Fun Fact

Did you know….The Beach Boys’ hit “Surfin USA” was a revision of Chuck Berry’s “Sweet Little Sixteen” with altered lyrics?

Brian Wilson idolized Chuck Berry, and he called “Surfin’ U.S.A.” a tribute to both Chuck himself and the song it replicates, “Sweet Little Sixteen.” However, the band didn’t actually credit Chuck as a songwriter - creating one of the first plagiarism battles in rock ‘n’ roll history. Several years later, Chuck was listed in the songwriting credits for the song.
