Boats, Birthdays and Mixing Music When March 14 comes around the Hanson fan world goes nuts. Everyone likes a birthday, sure, but this is no ordinary birthday. This is Taylor Hanson’s birthday. This year, it was an ultra special day as Taylor reached 30 years. Fans showed their love with …
With the recent boy band revival, most evident in the upcoming Package Tour featuring New Kids on the Block, 98 Degrees and Boyz II Men, it’s hard to forget another band that forever lives on in a ’90s kid’s heart — Hanson.
But it turns out that some things just get better with age, as evidenced by this amazing version the brothers did of their breakout hit “MMMBop” on Australian radio show Fifi and Jules. The video was posted to Youtube last September, but it’s gaining a lot of attention this week thanks to a recent post on BuzzFeed.
Below is a tweet from HANSON’s official twitter (@hansonmusic) “@hansonmusic: #2013 is gonna be a great year! New Album, New Tour etc. Can’t wait to share what we’ve been up to the last few months. Happy New Year!” Sounds great huh? credit: HANSON/@hansonmusic

This last week has provided some nice time off for us! One of the rare times of year that the music and entertainment industry shuts down so much that you have all but a forced vacation. Regardless of whether it was forced of not, it has been really nice. Christmas at the Hanson house was full of great food and a lot of laughs all around. We have a lot to be thankful for. I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas time as well!
In 1997, the impossibly young, impossibly cute boy band Hanson chirped their way into our brains with the impossibly catchy hit MmmBop and multi-million-selling album, Middle Of Nowhere. It’s the kind of story — a band of siblings who experience massive popularity at a young age — that usually ends in a rapid slide to obscurity, if not worse. I mean, what’s the likelihood that these boys could grow up without at least one DUI charge or rehab stint?
And yet, here they are seven years later, with a brand new Hanson album, Underneath, released on the brothers’ own record label, and no signs of family dysfunction. In fact, it seems that Hanson have earned the right to be taken seriously as pop songwriters — no mean feat for a grownup boy band.
