June 23 2016 by Dana Getz Postmodern Jukebox are back at it again, this time with a cover of “MMMBop” the Hanson brothers practically commissioned. Known for launching retro-fied takes on modern hit songs into viral success, the Scott Bradlee-led YouTube collective put a doo-wop spin on this 1996 favorite, which celebrated its 20th anniversary this […]
The Mmmbopreneurs: Hanson The Web 1.0 Veterans: Hanson Though it’s been about two decades since the group’s trademark hit, Hanson has now been an indie act for the bulk of its career. The group founded its own label in 2004, and has since released five albums. “Unlike the labels,” says Taylor Hanson, “we know where […]
By Amelia Parrott In the minds of many ’90s girls, the three brothers from Tulsa, Oklahoma known as Hanson will forever be frozen in time as the fresh-faced teens captured in countless Smash Hits magazine posters – as synonymous with the decade as inflatable couches and butterfy clips. But in reality Zac, Taylor and Isaac Hanson have […]
June 18th, 2013 by Tim Ferrar In the music business, there are inherent pitfalls in becoming too big, too quickly. This is something that bro-band Hanson know all too well. In the 1990s, these cute, long-haired Okie teens had a whole generation of tweens “MMBopp”-ing along, their posters plastered across the bedroom walls of […]

Weirdly similar to Gwyneth’s hair, the three Hanson brothers had blonde hair and wore it long (and sometimes curly or in a ponytail!) Guys nor girls were rushing to copy the musicians but the look was definitely memorable. Even in 2012 you can still refer to somebody as having “Hanson hair!”
When ‘MMMBop’ hit the airwaves in April 1997, everyone got their first introduction to a young trio of brothers with long blond hair and high-pitched voices called Hanson. While many pop acts disappear as quickly as they rise, these bright-eyed boys from Tulsa, Okla., have continued to produce a number of albums, start their own record label and even travel to Africa to help the fight against AIDS and poverty.
Being in the industry for over a decade, Hanson decided to celebrate their longevity with a series of shows called “Five of Five” at the Gramercy Theatre in New York City. Each night was dedicated to one of their five major albums, including their latest, ‘Shout It Out,’ on the fifth night. As the band prepared for their last evening of “Five of Five,” Hanson invited PopEater to come along for the ride.
Since their major-label debut album “Middle of Nowhere” was released in 1997, they have had a No. 1 hit single with the chirpy pop song “MMMBop,” sold more than 10 million copies of their music worldwide and performed all over the globe. And, much to the chagrin of many fans, Taylor got married.

Now there’s “Underneath,” Hanson’s first full studio effort of new songs since 2000’s “This Time Around” and the first release on the group’s very own record label, 3CG, named for “3 Car Garage,” an early independent release. The band of brothers has come full circle, leaving the major label shuffle behind to do for themselves.
