Hanson is an American pop rock band formed in Tulsa, Oklahoma by brothers Isaac (guitar, vocals), Taylor (keyboards, piano, vocals), and Zac Hanson (drums, vocals). They are often thought of as a one hit wonder best known for the 1997 hit song "MMMBop" from their major label debut album Middle Of Nowhere, which earned three Grammy nominations. Despite the enormous commercial success of Middle Of Nowhere, the band suffered from the merger that eliminated Mercury Records and were moved to Island Def Jam Music Group, which they eventually left after conflict with the label about creative input. The band now records under its own label, 3CG Records.

In recent years, Hanson has received acclaim by many publications for their surprising longevity in the industry, with many critics labeling them the most talented musical act to emerge from the pop music boom of the late 1990s. The group have currently sold 12 million records worldwide.
