Hanson Says We've All Been Singing MMMBop Wrong Since The 90s

- Page 1

There are a few songs that managed to become burned into our memories even if you don't actually remember listening to the song. Hanson's MMMBop is one of those songs.

Sure, it was filled up with nonsense, but it was one of those ear-worms that worked its way in and then set up shop. It doesn't really matter how many years have passed, as soon as MMMBop comes onto a speaker you are going to start singing along.

The problem is, Hanson says we have been singing it wrong for all these years?!


The Hanson brothers are all grown up now and even though they released the song when they were between 11-16, they are proud to carry it around with them.

The oldest Hanson brother, Isaac, is now 36 years old. If that doesn't make you feel old enough keep in mind he was only 16 when MMMBop was everywhere. His brothers Taylor and Zac are 34 and 31 respectively.

The single MMMBop was released all the way back in 1997. It actually spent 3 weeks as the number-one single on the Billboard Hot 100.

Since then, they have managed to grow up, get married and launch an entirely different type of career all because of the success of their debut album. Middle of Nowhere sold over 16 million copies and afforded them the opportunity to fund their beer company which has the best name ever: MMMHops.

These boys obviously have a sense of humor!

They also have some interesting little tidbits that totally caught us off guard. They let us all in on the fact that they realized that everyone has been singing the chorus to their most famous song wrong since 1997 and it's time to put an end to it.

The Backstreet Boys have been a surprisingly consistent presence in our lives since the 90s.

There really is no other way to put this, if you remember these songs you are definitely getting closer to 30+, than you are to 21.

Music from the 80s has stood the test of time, and I'm not saying that because I grew up in that decade. The lyrics were catchy, relatable, and upbeat. They also seemed to have choreography to go with it, and we knew how to dance to them all. We definitely had our priorities straight. For example, which scenario would do you better for the long term: Receiving a perfect grade on one math test or knowing how to moonwalk for the rest of your life. The answer is intuitive.

Of course everyone remembers the three main boy bands that have been lifted into pop royalty. Backstreet Boys, New Kids On The Block and NSYNC are the indisputable champions of the pop universe, without any doubts. A few others managed to get a good foot hold, like Boyz II Men or even Hanson who had their own hits, but there were even more that have been totally left in the past. GiphyBoy bands basically grew on trees in the 90s. A new one would pop up every 45 minutes with one hit song before fading back into the world. Sometimes
