The Hanson Brothers Are All Grown Up, But Wait Till You See Their 11 Kids!

We recently discussed fashion trends from the nineties but we can't really talk about the nineties without talking about a particular pop group of three brothers with good hair and upbeat, Grammy nominated songs, Hanson.

In the early nineties, Isaac, Taylor, and Zac started out in singing to crowds in their hometown of Tulsa, Oklahoma and first performed in the local Mayfest Arts Festival as the Hanson Brothers. In the beginning, they sang a cappella but soon began to incorporate their piano skills. Eventually, Isaac would take up the guitar and Zac the drums while Taylor remained on keys. They independently recorded and released the song 'MMMbop' in an album of the same name and were soon invited to play South By Southwest, or SXSW in Austin, Texas. It was there that they were signed to a manager who later got them signed to Mercury Records.

In 1997 the brothers now known as Hanson released the album Middle of Nowhere, selling 10 million copies worldwide and earning three Grammy award nominations. In 2000 the group released This Time Around through their label, now known as Island Def Jam, but it did not do as well due to a lack of promotional funding.

For the next few years the band would face more issues with their label, prompting them to leave and record and tour on their own.

Today, Hanson continues to make music, play shows to packed venues, make guest appearances, and they've even started a few other exciting projects — all while being husbands and fathers. If you've ever seen them live you know you can't write them off as a teenybopper band. Their musical and vocal abilities will shut you right up (new and old fans will argue that they've got more talent than half the music industry), and they might even have you dancing.

Remember the brothers with the good hair (when good hair didn't have a bad connotation)? From left the right, here's Zac, Taylor, and Isaac Hanson.

Speaking of hair, check out Zac's hair here. It can't get any more nineties than this.
