Shut Down Volume 2 is the fifth studio album by the Beach Boys, and the first of four they would release in 1964. The album's "Volume 2" refers to the 1963 hot rod compilation Shut Down, released by the band's label, Capitol Records, which included "409" and "Shut Down" but was not a Beach Boys album. This is the first album not to feature David Marks, and he would not appear on another album until That's Why God Made the Radio in 2012.


The front sleeve photograph, taken by Capitol staff photographer George Jerman, shows the band (now with Al Jardine making his cover debut) posing next to a selection of cool cars - notably, a blue Corvette Sting Ray owned by Dennis and Pontiac Grand Prix owned by Carl.
