"Don't Worry Baby" was released on May 11, 1964 as the "B" side to what was to be The Beach Boys first #1 single, "I Get Around", spent ten weeks on the charts and managed to make it to the #24 spot on Billboard's Hot Top 100 all on its own.
Written by Brian Wilson and Roger Christian and produced by Wilson, "Don't Worry Baby" was conceived by Wilson as a follow-up to the Ronettes' #2 smash, "Be My Baby" and a tribute to Veronica Bennett of the Ronettes.
Brian Wilson told Goldmine in 2011 regarding this track: "I wrote that with Roger Christian and it took me two days to write it. I started out with the verse idea and then wrote the chorus. It was a very simple and beautiful song. It's a really heart and soul song, I really did feel that in my heart. Some say it's about a car and others say it's about a girl, who's right? It's both. It's about a car and a woman."
Rolling Stone Magazine ranked the song at #178 on its list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.
