publish date: 2017-04-20
Welcome to the Coming Around Again podcast, the new member of the Pop Shop family, where host Andrew Unterberger and a variety of guests will be discussing notable anniversaries being celebrated in the music world.
This week, Coming Around Again takes on Hanson's iconic pop smash "MMMBop," which was released as a single 20 years ago last Saturday (April 15). With its mercilessly catchy chorus and sunny power-pop production, the song rocketed to the top of the Hot 100, and cemented the trio of teenage brothers (Taylor, Zac and Isaac) as one of the biggest new acts of 1997.
