Recent weeks have seen Busted team up with Simple Plan and Neck Deep for a series of 2.0 reworkings of their fan favourites ‘Loser Kid’ and ‘Meet You There’. Now the campaign continues with a fresh spin on the concept as Busted team up with HANSON for a brand new version of the American brothers’ 1997 #1 smash hit ‘MMMBop’. It emerges ahead ofBusted’s upcoming Greatest Hits tour, which features HANSON as special guests at all shows from September 9th onwards.
A Busted and HANSON collab is such a no-brainer it’s surprising that it hasn’t happened before. With HANSON joining the upcoming tour dates, the musical collaboration was essential. This new version of ‘MMMBop’ sees both bands bringing their best to the track, with Busted providing fresh lead vocals and a new burst of pop-punk punchiness, while HANSON provide uplifting vocal harmonies and arguably the most memorable hook of the entire ‘90s. Listen HERE.
Busted’s James Bourne says, “It’s been such an honour to sing this 90’s classic song with the band who made it 25 years on from original release! 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, we can’t wait to share it.”
And just maybe Busted and HANSON will reunite to perform ‘MMMBop’ on tour…
