Hanson Day, May 6

Back in the late 90s three brothers with luscious hair and a talent for infectious tunes burst on to the world pop scene, winning the hearts of millions of teenage girls who insisted on playingMMMBop 1000 times a day, driving their families crazy.

No one was more proud of the trio’s success than the governor of Hanson’s home state Oklahoma, who in 1998 declared May 6 Hanson Day.

Fans still celebrate to this day, flocking to Tulsa for an annual weekend of festivities hosted by the band.
