The Beach Boys' Brian Wilson composed their smash hit "Surfin'" while he was a student at Hawthorne High School. For his efforts, Wilson received an "F" from music teacher Fred Morgan.  Morgan at one time was quoted saying, "Brian wrote a composition for me and it turned out to be ‘Surfin.’  That composition got an F, but it made a million dollars." %8 years after graduating from Hawthorne High School, Wilson returned to walk the halls again, and officially had his grade for "Surfin'" changed from an "F" to an "A." https://twitter.com/BrianWilsonLive/status/952951427667824640?ref_src=tw... "Surfin'" was The Beach Boys' first hit, appearing on their debut album in 1961, Surfin' Safari. Via People
