'Surfin' USA' (1963)
The Beach Boys appeared on the Red Skelton Show in 1963 to "perform" their hit "Surfin' USA," though they were really just pretending to play over the studio recording – and Dennis isn't even bothering to play the drums. 1963 was a huge year for the Beach Boys. Surf music became a national craze, and movie theaters were full of movies about the beach lifestyle. Also, there were no pesky Beatles on the charts yet to steal their thunder.
