Hanson had fans bopping along on Friday morning as the group performed “MMMBop” on “GMA.” Watch the video below!
Hanson brought its signature song to “Good Morning America” to cap off the morning show’s “Ultimate Mixtape” week. In the days prior, viewers were treated to performances from the likes of Foreigner and En Vogue. But Isaac, Zac, and Taylor Hanson had an additional reason to stop by the Times Square studio.
The brothers are also celebrating their 25th anniversary as a band. The trio formed their musical unit in 1992. But it was another five years before Hanson found breakout success with its catchy, sing-along tune. An early version of “MMMBop” first debuted in 1996, but the following year, a reworked rendition was released as the lead single for the group’s debut studio album, Middle Of Nowhere.
“MMMBop” went to number one on the Billboard Hot 100, and topped charts across the world. And last month marked the 20th anniversary of its release, which forever changed the siblings’ lives. Of course, a lot has changed since then. All three are fathers, for instance. But they still have a passion for music, as evidenced by the “Middle of Everywhere Tour 25th Anniversary,” which starts in June. A greatest hits album will follow in September.
And they have no problem throwing it back and performing their iconic track, with Hanson even doing an acoustic “MMMBop” performance for “Greatest Hits” last summer. Now check out the new “GMA” video below!
