My American Artifact – The Beach Boys’ “Surfin’ USA”

I choose this music video as my American Artifact, because more that the patriotic aspect of identifying as America, I think the social and cultural world of being American is very distinct. A large part of American culture and society has been the popular culture, and I have to say when I think of a good-old-American-summer, the Beach Boys are the soundtrack. 🙂 I believe this band, song, and video, more than just having USA in the title, represent a lot about American pop culture. The video is a part of a television show, and television has been huge in our society for decades; the Beach Boys were an iconic boy band of an era, and even still today.
