The Beach Boys' salute to school pride is built around the melody of "On, Wisconsin!," the University of Wisconsin's fight song. One recorded version of "Be True To Your School" included cheerleader yells by the girl group The Honeys. The group included Marilyn Rovell who married the Beach Boys' Brian Wilson and became the mother of Carnie and Wendy Wison of Wilson Phillips. The Honeys also sang back up for surf pop duo Jan and Dean. "Be True To Your School" reached #6 on the US pop chart.
Sounds of Summer: The Very Best of The Beach Boys (Capitol 72435 82710 2) hit number 16 in the US during a chart stay of 104 weeks.
