20 Years After "MMMBop", Hanson Performed Their Hit Song And It's Actually Aged Like Fine Wine

I think every girl who grew up in the 90s remember the Hanson brothers, Isaac, Taylor and Zac. Whether it was a poster from the newest issue of TigerBeat hanging in their locker or their album playing through the disc-man 24-7, the Hanson brothers were part of the boy band phenomenon we loved about the 90s.

Their ridiculously catchy song, "MMMBop" rose through the charts in 1997 when the boys were just 16, 13 and 11 years old. It spent three weeks as the number-one single on the Billboard Hot 100, and for good reason.

Now 20 years later, we still can't get this song out of our heads.

The brothers now seem to be back in the limelight and we can't believe what we're hearing.

Looking very different than the did in the 90s, Hanson seems to be happy to be back on stage together and they are sounding better than ever!

The trio recently performed the song that we have not been able to get out of heads for two decades and I hazard to say it's actually better than the original!

It wasn't that long ago that the band confirmed that we have been singing the lyrics to their hit song wrong for the last 20 years.

"Too many people put a 'wop' in there. What happens is people go to sing that song, and they start making it up as if it's nonsense. But it's actually a repetitive part," Zac shared.

"Mmmbop, ba duba dop/ Ba du bop, ba duba dop/ Ba du bop, ba duba dop/ Ba du, yeah/ Mmmbop, ba duba dop/ Ba du bop, ba du dop/ Ba du bop, ba du dop/ Ba du, yeah..."

Oops, apparently we don't know the song as well as we thought we did.

So what's an Mmmbop?

"The whole song is about the fact that almost everything in your life will come and go very quickly," Zac said. "You've got to figure out what matters and grab onto those things."

And it looks like the brothers are still taking that advice to heart.

It appears that this performance is not a one time thing, either. The band just released a Christmas album last month and they are embarking on a sold out tour through the United States and Canada.

While they may be known for "MMMBop", the guys actually released six other studio albums and two demo albums.

What do you think? Is their new performance better than the original in the 90s?
