Busted team up with Hanson for new version of MMMbop

By | Published on Friday 26 May 2023


Busted have taken a break from releasing new versions of their own songs to team up with Hanson for an updated rendition of their song ‘MMMbop’. Hanson will also be joining Busted as special guests on their upcoming 20th anniversary tour.

“It’s been such an honour to sing this 90s classic song with the band who made it 25 years on from original release”, says Busted’s James Bourne. “To have them as special guests on tour with us in September will be really special too, we’re huge fans of Hanson!”

Hanson’s Taylor Hanson adds: “It’s been a thrill to reimagine ‘MMMBop’ with Busted and to see how a song with such history comes to life in a new way. This is a true fusion of Hanson and Busted”.
