In 1959, the soon to be Beach Boy, Brian Wilson submitted a writing assignment and was given an F or failing mark. The assignment would end up being the song Surfin and the Beach Boys’ first hit song. Brian Wilson posted on social media that he recently returned to Hawthorne High School, in Hawthorne California to protest his mark. His then music teacher back in 1959 gave him an F. This past week, the current principal Dr Vanessa Landesfeind reversed that decision and gave Brian an A.
