Hanson STILL Proud of MMMBop!

They should be — because it's been STUCK in our heads for the last 16 years! LOLz!

While promoting their latest album Anthem, which we reported on recently, Hanson — brothers Isaac, Taylor, and Zac — said of the song that dare not have a real word in its chorus:

"I think we're proud of it. The interesting thing is that we were lucky to have success young. But we used to tell people, 'Just think of us as old guys with high voices.' When we started, we always saw ourselves at the beginning of a long career of music.

That song represents our story. It's a garage band that loved soul music, doo-wop and classic American rock and roll. We wrote it, too. Zac is one of the writers, which makes him the youngest Grammy-nominated songwriter ever at 11."

Once thought to be a one-hit wonder, Hanson has been together 21 years and put out 11 albums. Suck on that, 90s music critics!

They are also donating all the proceeds of their new beer line, MmmHops, to tornado victims in Oklahoma, their home state.

Musical geniuses who like to help while they booze. No wonder they’ve LASTED!!!

Ch-ch-check out the brothers evolution from boys to dudes to men. Did we just come up with a new band name? (below)

    I agree, they should be proud. It was a successful song and a hit in many countries. I think it's cool that they embrace it. Many singers act all embarrassed when they talk about their old music/songs. That's really annoying because most of them were songs that made them popular and successful in the first place.

    Re: 1Two3 – True. You should read the Miley Cyrus post higher on the page - it is exactly what you are talking about.

    A recent interview with Isaac Hanson:

    "You played "MmmBop" last night, and I was surprised. Is it weird playing those oldass songs?
    There are two answers to that. The first one is I love playing the music from the last 15-20 years. Absolutely. We have a relationship with the audience that is as old as those songs are. In a way, you would never ever want to in any way say to a fan, "Well, that is not who I am now," because in a way you are insulting them. It grows and changes with you over the course of time. The song "MmmBop" is actually about holding on to things that really matter to you because there will be few things that last through your whole life. Hold on the things that are precious to you because life is fleeting. And it happens to have a catchy little chorus, a little nonsensical, scatty thing. When people are singing it now, there are a lot of people singing it for that reason and I feel that, from them, I see it in there face. I have a huge pet peeve with artists who start off young and [won't play old songs]. When you do that it is like you just gave a giant middle finger to your fans. What an insecure, and frankly kind of pathetic thing to do. It is kind of self-righteous, really. You are kind of dissing your fans."
