Hanson Then Vs. Hanson Now


Here’s a solid throwback for all of us 90’s kids. Do you remember Hanson? If not, let me refresh your memory. Hanson is a boy band from Tulsa, Oklahoma and consists of none other than the Hanson brothers: Isaac, Taylor, and Zac. Their most famous song, “MMMBop,” was released in 1997. If you’re wondering what “MMMBop” even means, I really couldn’t tell you. What I do know is that the song was (and still is) ridiculously catchy. After watching a more recent performance of the song, I think it’s one of those tracks that gets better with age. Take a listen to both the 1997 version, and the 2012 version of “MMMBop” and decide for yourself which one you think is better. I think the haircuts are also a plus! The boys have definitely grown up well.
