Written by Brian Wilson and Roger Christian, Don’t Worry Baby reaches no. 24 on the Billboard Hot 100. Rolling Stone lists the song as the 176th greatest song of all time. Bruce Johnston states:
Roger Christian is a disk jockey that at the time his words were sufficient for some of Brian’s melodies, but now I’m sure that some of those groovy melodies … I’m sure that Don’t Worry, Baby could be rewritten. The words are so trite now, but that was where it was at for about five minutes.
