Smiley Smile is the twelfth studio album by The Beach Boys. It was released in 1967 instead of the planned and much-discussed Smile (which was eventually released later), as the follow-up to the acclaimed Pet Sounds. Brian Wilson, the leader of the band, had gotten into drug problems, and so he cacelled the Smile project. Smiley Smile was a critical and commercial failure. The album has gained some popularity over the years though (it notably contains the hit singles Heroes and Villains and Good Vibrations).
