Mmm bop is a damn catchy song.  Height of literature?  Hell no.  Upbeat and fun?  Sure.

Steal My Sunshine was Len. This Time Around was a pretty good Hanson song though.

Their rock music isn't half bad...  I'd consider going if they play only rock songs and the ticket prices were cheap.

25th anniversary tour?

Thanks, having just turned 40 last week I didn't feel old enough already.

"Thinking 'Bout Somethin'" is a great pop song.
Hanson actually is/are (?) pretty good and talented they didn't bow down to the business
and when I say the "business" I mean the "Industry".

I used to have a coworker whose license plate was MMMBOP. She's probably thrilled.

I was in middle school when they were really big. All the guys in my class went through:

-Thinking that they were hot, and then awkwardly discovering that they were guys.
-Nearly every girl in the school being obsessed with them at the age where they didn't really understand that they have a near-zero chance of marrying one of them and also where a lot of us guys were too awkward to get a girlfriend anyhow. So Hanson was kinda scapegoated.

/There's probably some residual unearned hatred of them left in me somewhere

Well, the music is upbeat and fun.

You have so many relationships in this life
Only one or two will last
You go through all the pain and strife
Then you turn your back and they're gone so fast
Oh yeah
And they're gone so fast, yeah
Oh
So hold on the ones who really care
In the end they'll be the only ones there
And when you get old and start losing your hair
Tell me who will still care
Can you tell me who will still care?

I clicked on this thread to post the same thing, even though I have heard very little of their music since mmmbop.  One annoying song they wrote as children has made so many people just automatically ignore any of their output since, and though I have not even RTFT yet, I imagine it will be mostly insults and derision.

/loathed that song
//have heard some good music from them since, will give anything a chance

Well, the oldest one was obviously male. And the drummer was 11 years old. They thought all three were hot?

The one still looked like a girl really early on, IIRC. Or at may have been just the other two. And of course, middle schoolers are about 12-13 years old themselves, so 11 isn't too young for them, especially if you're just going by a quick glance and don't know their actual ages.

Sorry, I was thinking high school. Middle school is not a term I hear often nor is it something that is common around here.

When Hmmm Bop first came out, I didn't realize that I knew those kids. I worked with their dad. Then one day he mentioned that the boys would be coming up to the office the next day. So I had my wife bring my daughter up "For lunch" that day. My daughter damned near lost her mind. She was so excited she could hardly speak.
