“Surfin’ USA” is a song with lyrics written by Brian Wilson for The Beach Boys, set to the melody from Chuck Berry’s “Sweet Little Sixteen”. Berry received co-writing credit for composing the song after litigating. The Jesus and Mary Chain covered the song, which appears on their 1988 album Barbed Wire Kisses, a compilation of B-sides and rare tracks. Typical for early style of The Jesus and Mary Chain the song features large amounts of feedback.
