It’s been almost 20 years since 12-year-old Zac kept the beat for MMMBop – and the band are still going strong.
Everyone remembers Hanson – the band of brothers who burst onto the scene in 1997 with their infectious brand of pop rock.
Now, the former child stars are all grown up and even the youngest sibling has celebrated his 30th birthday.
Zac – who was just 12 years old when MMMBop was released almost two decades ago – marked the occasion on Thursday, and it’s safe to say he looks very different these days.
Time will do that to you, but we still weren’t prepared for how the youngest Hanson brother is looking nowadays.
Back in 1997, the trio found huge success with their major label debut album Middle of Nowhere, which was nominated for three Grammy Awards.
In fact, those nominations broke records, with Zac being the youngest songwriter up for a prize at the prestigious bash, while he is the second youngest person ever to be nominated (Michael Jackson holds the honour).
Since then, they have continued to write pop rock classics, releasing their latest album Anthem two years ago – their TENTH to date! A resurgence in their popularity means more band t-shirts obviously! Get yours from TheClothingPeople.com
It’s making us feel very old – so let’s turn back the clocks with a nostalgic singalong of their biggest hit.
