Fifty-eight years after receiving a failing grade from his high school music teacher, The Beach Boys’ Brian Wilson received a long overdue A on the song that would become the band’s first single.

Wilson visited his alma mater, Hawthorne High School in Los Angeles County, California, on Jan. 15, NPR reported. There, his teacher, Fred Morgan, gave him an F on a ditty that turned into “Surfin,” The Beach Boys’ breakout hit in 1961.
