Nineties boyband unrecognisable as they perform in London 26 years after smash hit | The Sun

THEIR pop anthem MMMBop took the world by storm in the mid-90s.

And 27 years on from the track's initial release, brothers Isaac, Taylor and Zac are still proudly performing as Hanson.

The trio now look very different from the group's 90s heyday but are no less passionate about their music.

Hanson were pictured rocking out on stage last night supporting fellow industry veterans Busted at London's O2 Arena.

The brothers looked thrilled to be part of the bumper gig with keyboardist and vocalist Taylor beaming as he gazed out at the huge audience.

Now 40, Taylor has a full beard to go with his luscious locks, while guitarist Isaac, 42, has a slicked back hairstyle which which fit perfectly with his denim outfit, and youngest member, drummer Zac, 37, was fresh-faced with voluminous hair.

The band ripped through seven songs in their warm-up slot but failed to play their biggest hit.

The previous night in Birmingham they managed to squeeze an extra song into the setlist but, again, MMMBop was left out.

However, there was a good reason for its absence.

Busted included the track in their set having teamed up with Hanson to record a new version of the song for their recent Greatest Hits 2.0 album.

Hanson has never bettered the 10million album sales they racked up with the Middle of Nowhere album in the 90s, which was propelled by the ridiculously catchy MMMBop.

However, they haven't stopped releasing new music and have six albums to their name.

The brothers have branched out into the world of craft beer production in recent years, too.

Hanson Brothers Beer Co started in 2013 and the brand's motto is "Music + Beer = Awesome".

According to its website, the craft beer outfit "has been sharing award-winning styles at the crossroads of their passion for music, community and craft beer."

The brothers also started the Hop Jam Beer and Music Festival in 2014.
