    I once heard an interview with Brian Wilson, who said he would try to emulate classical composers when writing music. One song he said was inspired by Beethoven, and he proceeded to cite the exact musical passage from one of his symphonies. He really is an underrated musical genius. Also their harmonies have never been replicated by another band.
