7. Hanson

Long before the Jonas Brothers, there was Hanson. Brothers Isaac Hanson, Taylor Hanson, and Zac Hanson dropped their debut studio album Middle of Nowhere in 1997. Led by the famed earworm “MMMBop,” the album hit No. 2 and went multiplatinum. The group continues to perform decades later, going on regular tours and releasing albums every few years.
