The Beach Boys - "That's Why God Made The Radio" Video

The reunited Beach Boys’ video for their comeback single “That’s Why God Made The Radio” looks exactly the way you’d expect a record label-masterminded Beach Boys video to look like in 2012: Instagram-style footage of various attractive young white people enjoying California sunshine, with the elderly Boys only showing up at the very end, to dole out high-fives. John Stamos, sadly, does not appear. Watch it below.

That’s Why God Made The Radio is out now on Capitol.

  1. This makes me sad. The song is so derivative of what they used to be that it cheapens their past. And the nostalgic video footage is so forced; it looks like a commercial. I’m sad.

  2. Orthopedic shoes at 2:48?

  3. I geeked out at the sight of the “Love You” album.

  4. This is VINTAGE Beach Boys! I think it’s terrific these fellows are able to re-unite after so many years and put aside their differences. This video put a smile on my face when I saw it for the first time! Brian Wilson is a musical genius! You all sound so good…it’s just like 1962! Pease, don’t EVER stop making music!
