The Hondells were Surf Rock band that formed in 1964 from the United States, who hit the Top 10 with the 1964 single "Little Honda". The band had been put together by record producer Gary Usher. Their only hit, "Little Honda", was written by Brian Wilson and Mike Love of The Beach Boys and given to Usher early in 1964. Usher called in a group of studio musicians – including Glen Campbell and Hal Blaine – and hastily recorded the song that summer. It was leaked to local radio and spread across U.S. pop radio.
