Busted join forces with Hanson for a new version of ‘MMMBop’

By Levi Mulholland

Ahead of joining Busted on their ‘Greatest Hits’ tour, Hanson join up with the band for a new rendition of their ‘90s classic hit.

With recent weeks seeing Busted team up with Simple Plan and Neck Deep for a set of 2.0 reworkings of fan favourite tracks ‘Loser Kid’ and ‘Meet You There’, now we have a fresh reworking of Hanson’s #1 hit ‘MMMBop’, with Busted adding their 2000s pop-punk spin on one of the most enduring hooks of the 1990s.

With new lead vocals from Busted whilst Hanson and providing the uplifting harmonies, this new version is clearly a product of an admiration for the original smash hit.

Hanson are set to join Busted on their ‘Greatest Hits’ tour from September 9th onwards, so a collaboration between the two makes perfect sense. Of the joint effort, 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.”

Perhaps the upcoming tour will see an on-stage joining of the two?

Busted’s 20th anniversary and ‘Greatest Hits’ tour have seen phenomenal levels of public demand, with multiple dates being added and tickets being sparse or sold out. The line-up is completed with the addition of New Hope Club and The Tyne.
