Love it or hate it, “MMMBop” became a pop classic that offered one last breath of innocence before radio turned ugly and/or utterly vapid. With the rise of boy bands, mini Mariah Careys, and rap-rock nasties, Hanson’s days were numbered, and when the young trio began making more mature alternative pop, it was shunned by radio and MTV alike. Too bad: 2007’s The Walk was a strong effort from a bunch of post-adolescents who overcame what must have been a boatload of pressure, proving that the brothers hadn’t been suffocated by their past.
