My life is basically a never-ending episode of “I Love the ’90s.” Even so, I have never been a fan of Hanson. Still, I am mighty impressed that they have taken the Song That Must Not Be Named, and parlayed it into a beverage company. The company’s been around since 2011, but this week, they hit Hollywood — their MMMhops brew was served at the “Hangover 3″ premiere. Ed Helms drank the stuff! With Taylor Hanson. (He was always the cute one).
Check out the new Pale Ale bottle after the jump — and just try not to get that song stuk in your head. [Twitter] Keep reading »
The Hanson baby boom continues! Taylor Hanson, 29 — the middle brother in the band Hanson — and his wife Natalie, 28, are expecting their fifth child, People reports. “Natalie and I are so anxious to meet our fifth mini-Hanson,” Taylor says. “As are the four siblings at home who are counting the days to the arrival.” Read more…
Guys, I don’t know about you, but when I think of Hanson, I think of the islands, naturally. So it makes sense that Hanson — you know, of the hit song “Mmm Bop” — would stage their 20th anniversary (!) celebration in Jamaica. For the low price of $2,999 (plus airfare) you get to spend five days with the band at the Breezes Resort in Negril, Jamaica. What you can expect from the Brothers Hanson, aside from epic amounts of rockin’ good times:
• Mix Jamaican drinks with Isaac
• Learn to cook Jamaican food with Taylor
• Enjoy a Tie-Dye Session with Zac
So, who’s signing up? [Hanson]
Teeny-bopper, mmm-boppers, Hanson are back with a new song. The video for “Give a Little” from their latest album Shout it Out is still jump-up-and-down while you chew your bubble gum fun, but with a slightly more adult feel. Like maybe you’re chewing Orbitz instead of Bubble Yum. I still can’t believe they have facial hair. I feel like a perv for thinking they’re cute. What do you think of their new single?

Amelia: if you must. i need the posts today. because i am hungover.

A lot of famous musicians have side projects because they’re just so creative that one band isn’t enough, i.e., Damon Albarn is in both Blur and Gorillaz, and Spencer Krug is in both Wolf Parade and Sunset Rubdown. Well, there’s a new band that’s made up of the most random mix of musicians — we think they must have been bored and looking for something to do since all of their bands peaked in the ’90s or early ’00s. Tinted Windows is made up of Taylor Hanson (Hanson), Adam Schlesinger (Fountains of Wayne), James Iha (Smashing Pumpkins), and Bun E. Carlos (of Cheap Trick), and their first record comes out next month. The initial idea to work together came when Hanson and Schlesinger met in the mid-’90s, and they just kept adding members, I guess. The first single, “Kind of A Girl,” sounds like a Fountains of Wayne song being sung by Hanson. We think they should add a member of Soul Asylum or Goo Goo Dolls to the group, too. Keep reading »
Everywhere I look, those dang Jonas Brothers are there, torturing me with memories. Memories of what, you may ask? Hanson. That painfully annoying threesome of brothers from the ’90s who performed that song “Mmm Bop”. Just like the Jonas Brothers, the young one was sweet and adorable, the middle one was the one the girls peed their pants over, and the older one got hit with the ugly stick. I HATED Hanson. They gave me the heebie-jeebies. Why is it that teen girls are still drawn to this crap? Keep reading »
