Radio Feedback: Hanson On MmmBop’s First Spin

Welcome to Radio Feedback,’s weekly feature where we ask artists to wax nostalgic on the first time they heard themselves on the radio.

“We were just a garage band that got lucky that our first record became something far-reaching,” Taylor Hanson told “We’ve spent the last 16 years continuing to do that, and ‘MMMBop’ is a big part of that story,”

It was nearly impossible to go anywhere the summer of 1997 and not hear Hanson’s “MMMBop” on the radio. The song lead to three GRAMMY nominations for Hanson, including Best New Artist, Record of the Year and Best Pop Performance By a Duo or Group with Vocal. At age 12, drummer Zac Hanson became the youngest GRAMMY-nominated songwriter ever.
