Oklahoma City Thunder are using Hanson 's song "Fired Up" on their FOX Sports Oklahoma playoff coverage. And, if you didn't know, Hanson loves the Thunder . "Fired Up" will be featured on Hanson's new album, Anthem (June 18). While we're tremendously happy that the Thunder chose an Oklahoma band's music to use for their broadcast ( other than outsourcing the talent ), we want to make sure the Thunder brass knows what else is out there. If the [...]
Last year marked the first Mixtape Festival, and with headliners like New Kids on the Block , 98 Degrees and LL Cool J , it was far more overt about its nostalgia cash-in purpose than other summer music spectacles. And now the Mixtape Fest is back for a second year, and it promises to be even more blatantly tailored to people who grew up on '90s pop. NKOTB's Donnie Wahlberg was on Ryan Seacrest 's radio show to announce some of the big names on this year's bill , including his [...]
Perhaps I had fan girl earmuffs on but I didn't think the HANSON sounded that bad with their performance of GET THE GIRL BACK on the Jay Leno show last night.
Hanson 's music video for "Get The Girl Back" was recently released. Pre-order it now on iTunes . The video also features actresses Kat Dennings and Nikki Reed. Have you watched Hanson's video for "Get The Girl Back" yet? — Kat Dennings (@OfficialKat) April 4, 2013
The year of Hanson is upon us! After announcing plans for ninth album, Anthem , and a supporting world tour this summer, the three brothers have premiered the music video for lead single, "Get the Girl Back." Starring the lovely young actresses Kat Dennings and Nikki Reed , the clip uses Hanson's performance at a dive bar (they're peculiarly overdressed!) as a backdrop for a couple love (or one-night-stand) stories. Drake Bell (we're told) bumbles his way around Kat, with patrons and employees singing along to goad him into getting her back. [...]
Hanson have released their new music video for "Get The Girl Back," which includes guest cameos from Kat Dennings and Nikki Reed. You can watch the video by clicking read more. The track is taken from the trio's new album, Anthem, which drops on June 18th.
Hanson are MMMBack (sorry), announcing today (April 1) their big plans for 2013: for the trio's 21st anniversary, they're releasing their ninth album, Anthem , on June 18 and they'll hit the road for a world tour the following month. That's not all: lead single "Get the Girl Back" is getting a music video starring Kat Dennings ( 2 Broke Girls ) and Nikki Reed ( Twilight ), and it'll premiere Thursday (!) on VH1.com. Based on the above single artwork and the fact that the video will feature "an old-school brass section," it [...]
Filed under: News , Exclusive , Music Appreciation Frank Micelotta, Getty Right now's probably a good time to revisit Tina Turner . She's probably best remembered to anyone under 50 as a giant-haired ballad singer from the '80s, but Tina used to be badass . After all, it's not everyone who can say they duetted with Mick Jagger and were in The Who 's movie Tommy . [...]
Also known by some Tinted Windows fans as "The Red Album." And, sometimes, "The Only Album." If you were to rename Tinted Windows based on the former groups of its component band members, the best recombination might be "Cheap Fountains of Smashing Hanson." Yes, the band is (was?) that bizarre of a "supergroup": Adam Schlesinger, of Fountains of Wayne; Taylor Hanson, of Hanson (yes, the "MmmBop" Hanson); James Iha, of Smashing Pumpkins; and Bun E. Carlos, of Cheap Trick. At this point in time, it seems that maybe the whole thing [...]
Hanson Covers 'We are Never Ever Getting Back Together' at the Fifi and Jules Radio show in Australia.
Three men between the ages of 26-31 singing this is just weird. The HANSON lay their skillz into the TAYLOR SWIFT's latest mp3, WE ARE NEVER EVER GETTING BACK TOGETHER . Anyone know why they are doing this ?! Both orig and cover need to go away.
We can't promise you this is the best video you'll see today...but it's the best video you'll see today. Hanson stopped by Australian radio show Fifi And Jules , and the brothers know a thing or two about massive pop anthems, so they turned out an unplugged cover of Taylor Swift 's " We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together ." Do the guys sound a little weathered? Sure. But it all comes together with that patented Hanson Harmonizing at the end. We like the earthiness they've added [...]
There are the essential albums that need to be in everyone's collection. There are the personal favorites, the ones that aren't highly acclaimed but still get played every once in a while. And then there are the albums that you stick in the back of your collection because you want to forget that [...]
Growing up, you have to do things that you don't want to do. Your parents usually tell you that it "builds character" (gotta love those arbitrary, don't question my authority excuses). What you don't know at the time is that anything and everything you do will later serve you in life. If you are a dude who was forced to play piano, you'll later use that skill to impress a ditzy chick and give her a three-finger arpeggio ifyaknowwhatimean. I'm here today to give you young'ns some insight, some... homework if you will. Learn the lyrics to pop songs, specifically [...]
Typically the term "father" conjures up images of an old man who likes playing golf, watching TV in his recliner and complains that the music is "too darn loud". But music's latest crop of family men have brought us a totally new breed: The Swaggy Dad. Stars like Jay-Z , Usher , Robin Thicke ooze style (and musical talent, of course) and also just happen to be great dads. Which is why we're celebrating Father's Day by honoring the Top 10 Dads With Swag. [...]
This month marks 20 years of the HANSON performing so to celebrate the trio are posting footage of their early days including their first ever live show in 1992. And I feel a tad older than I felt yesterday. That. And the fact that the TAYLOR has four kids, with a fifth on its way. PS too bad their last few long_ones have been crap. And enjoy ..
Backtracking is our recurring look back at the pop music that shaped our lives. Our friends may come and go, but we’ll be spinning our favorite albums forever. The last few years of the '90s saw a transition in music from angsty grunge and gangsta rap to Disney factory-produced pop, thanks to formulaic groups like Backstreet Boys and *NSYNC . It seemed boy bands were set to once again rule the pop charts in the new millennium (they hadn't since New Kids On [...]
Moving A Body is the debut LP from Will Hanson . It was recorded at Chemikal Underground and had it's digital release last August, followed by a release on 123 vinyl in October. It has 10 tracks and was funded in-part by Creative Scotland. These, of course, are the facts. They do not, however, even begin to tell you quite what a remarkable record Moving A Body is. Over the course of the ten tracks Will offers up, he takes in a whole number of influences; from the spine-tingling Mogwai-esque guitar builds, [...]
I know what you're thinking. Is this girl really going to write about Hanson , the long-haired boy band from back in the day who sang Mmmbop ? The truth is, yes. But instead of focusing on the past, I'm going to write about the brothers who never really went anywhere; the ones who started their own record label and released over nine full-length albums; and the ones that I've been following for over sixteen years as a dedicated fan. Those who have kept in touch with Hanson's [...]
