Mike Love may be the "front man" and "voice" of the Beach Boys to a degree but he has done more damage than good in every respect. Mike Love was critical of Brian when Pet Sounds was being made, he was critical of Smile; he was critical of the Beach Boys artistic progression altogether. And to this day he continues to stroke his ego cuz of Kokomo. It makes me sick when people think of the Beach Boys and think of that mediocre song. The Beach Boys should be looked at for the brilliant music they made throughout the 60s and 70s- Surfin USA, Lil Deuce Coupe, In My Room, Fun Fun Fun, I Get Around, Dont Worry Baby, Little Honda, Dance Dance Dance, California Girls, Help Me Rhonda, Wouldn't it Be Nice, God Only Knows, Good Vibrations, Heroes & Villains, Darlin, Do It Again, Forever, Til I Die, Marcella, Sail Or Sailor etc. Mike Love is hack, Brian Wilson all the way!!!
