    I used to think Isaac was ugly back when he was 19, but now! He’s cute, he reminds me a little of Christian Bale. Zac is a hottie, and Taylor, well, not my favorite but still fine.

    lets forget about what they look like and realize what amazing philanthropist these guys are. they have raised so much money and awareness for the sufferings over in Africa, especially in the younger generation and should be praised.

    Melissa Says:

    I loooovee Hanson. 12+ yrs and still AMAAZING people, musicians and philanthropists. People that are not familiar with their recent stuff are missing out BIG TIME.

    Oh and it’s just HANSON not Hanson Brothers the whole Jonas Brothers thing got you all mixed up Jared.

    I’M GOING TO SEE THEM TONIGHT!!! i do like the jonas brothers, but they would be nowhere without hanson and they have made it through the teen craze storm and are now an incredibly underrated but amazing group!

    skye Says:

    Hey now I remember Hanson and how much I HATED them. Don’t try to bash the JB, they have so much talent and their songs are so much better than than Hanson’s were,oh I love those JBs and I’m older than them but oh well they have what it takes to be in the business for a long time.

  46. 46
    skye Says:

    Oh in my defense of the Jonas Brothers I forgot to mention that Hanson is aging beautifully,very nice.

  47. 47
    Veronica Says:

    I personally think Hanson’s songs are way better, and Hanson as a whole is way better than the JB. I don’t hate the JB, I just don’t like their music. Hanson’s songs are so incredibly deep and powerful. They write amazing lyrics, and are such great, amazing, people. They all have aged damn well.

    kellyb Says:

    Yes Taylor’s feet may not be as pretty as the rest of him, but your feet probably wouldn’t look so great either if you’d walked 80+ barefoot miles for a cause you believed in! Isaac, Taylor and Zac – ‘I follow your lead’

    keena Says:

    I absolutely LOVE them! Zac is the reason I became a drummer. It’s weird to think that he’s 23 today! WHOA! I’m only 17, so I’ve been listening to them since I was 6. All of their albums are to die for.I also love the Jonas Brothers, so don’t diss either of these bands! They have pure talent, and are in it for the fans and the music-NOT the money or the girls. (:

    Andie Says:

    haha. Hanson is the band that was to stay forever.
    I still love them as much as I love in 1997 :D

    [I never heard jonas brothers, but I don´t like when people compare them. well. jonas brothers seems to me like a copycat D:
    but maybe I´m wrong.]


    HANSON <3 forever ^^
    still doing great music.

    zurles Says:

    JB – ‘they have what it takes to be in the business for a long time.’

    well, the most part of the famous musicians nowardays are terrible suckers, you know, it doesn´t need much to be in the business, you just have to do music for histeric teenagers and look pretty, it doesn´t mean much.
    do GOOD music is not the same thing that have fame for eternity.

    All hail the original Jonas Brothers!

    mz Sass Says:

    Wow! They’re handsome men….especially the youngest one!!
    I remember the middle one who sang lead (Taylor?) was usually considered the cutest.

    I considered myself too old for Hanson………UM…..but secretly I did love “Mmmbop”! It reminded me of the Jackson 5. :) ;)

    Damn, you little Jonas chicks kill me…I felt old enough when y’all had no clue who Courtney Love was! ;)

    rini Says:

    I LOVE Hanson have been a fan for 11 years now. I see them every year they do a tour. The Jonas brothers could learn a lot from Hanson, cause just like Hanson in a few years all this fame will die down, the fans are gonna start leaving and the record label is gonna become shady. Hanson are still making albums on their indie label and touring and have a great true fan base. I hope the Jonas brothers will be as lucky.

    hannah Says:

    Hanson is an amazing band. I’m not going to sit here screaming and defending them anymore. If their NEW music is not your thing then that’s fine, whatever. But they are doing a lot of great things lately and those things should be checked out. is a place where you can find out more.

    Happy 23rd birthday to Zac by the way!

    What’s the big deal with them going bare foot….seriously Michael Franti of Spearhead has been going bare foot for the past nine or so years and for the same sort of reasons

    maria4hitz Says:

    I love them!!! they are amazing! It’s a band to see live, they are so good playing live. Their latest record “The walk” is one of my favorites of all time. You can’t compare them to the Jonas brothers, these brother could learn A LOT from hanson. And they have such a loyal fan base. I’d like to know if the jonas brothers will be making music like hanson in 12 years. I’ve been a fan for 11 years and i’m so proud of them!

    kristina Says:

    Thank you for finally posting Hanson. They have been doing this for a while now and people are finally listening. They are my inspiration, and after meeting them during the 2nd leg of their last tour, amazing men. Its sad that people of the “younger generation” don’t know who they are, or aren’t aware of the world issues, it really is.
