Three blond-haired Oklahoma brothers, Taylor, Zac and Isaac Hanson topped the U.S. charts in 1997 with the most infectious rip-off of the Jackson 5 since New Edition, MMMBop. With that single leading the charge, a major-label debut titled Middle of Nowhere soared to No. 2 on Billboard’s album chart while racking up worldwide sales of 10 million, 4 million of those in the States. The album also topped the U.K. sales chart. Early the following year, an authorized biography hit the New York Times Best Sellers List at No. 9.
