Opening Bit[edit]

"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."

No reference. What is this, being written by their publicist? It's going.

Which is it? MMMBop or Mmmbop?[edit]

Here's the situation with redirects and disambiguation (dab) pages:

My suggestions as to actions:

  • There does not seem to be an album named "MMMBop", so I would suggest that this redirect page be deleted via {{RFD}}
  • the content of Mmmbop should be moved to and redirected to MMMBop and tagged with {{R from misspelling}}
  • MMMBop (song) should be redirected to MMMBop without an R-tag

I think it's best that I leave it to people who are more familiar with the topic to refine, advance, or reject this proposal and act upon it if that is desired. Regards, Courtland 15:47, 26 August 2005 (UTC)

There actually was an album named MMMBop which was released before Hanson was signed by Mercury. I'll add an album stub for it with a track listing.

Hanson are not girls. The middle child is married and has three kids, his wifes' name is Natalie

Photo[edit]

Anyone have a photo to add? --buck 14:32, 20 January 2006 (UTC)

Every photo that is added are deleted over copyright issues.

If there's anyway to get around those issues, let me know. I have a ton of recent photos of them that I would love to share with the world (via wikipedia)! --Molly 06:31, 19 June 2006 (UTC)

What if someone puts a photo on that they took themselves, like at a concert or something? I have several I've taken. I'm just wondering, because those wouldn't be actully copyrighted, like one from a photoshoot would. If anyone knows if that will work, let me know. --Jena 07:45PM, 12, March, 2007 (Et)

That would be fine. You'd just upload it to WP or Commons under a free license. I have a number that I've taken as well, but the good quality ones of the whole group are from almost 7 years ago. If yours are more recent than that (and they are indeed your pictures that you have the right to release), then by all means...please! LaMenta3 18:29, 13 March 2007 (UTC)

Merger Discussion[edit]

Support merger of individual members into current page: 1) the group members have no notability outside the group (no single projects); 2) the individual entries are identical to this one, even the personal information is repeated in this article and consists of one sentence each. Support Merge. Jtmichcock 14:00, 14 February 2006 (UTC)

I agree. Unless the Hansons release solo projects, they should be redirected to this article. If a member has any notable biographical information independent of his brothers (is married, has a child, etc) it should be included in this article. --buck 15:07, 14 February 2006 (UTC)

Yeah, it's best to merge the three articles with the main page- prehaps have their own little section in the Hanson main page.

So is someone going to cut and past this individual info onto the main Hanson page?

Yeah, if you're going to do it part-way, let's see you do this all the way. Thanks in advance. -Tim Rhymeless (Er...let's shimmy) 04:55, 25 February 2006 (UTC)

Why? Tons of other bands that have members who haven't done anything 'notable' outside their band have their own wikipedia pages, like Julian Casablancas from The Strokes. Shit, the Hanson page doesn't even mention which instrument each guy plays.

Personal life[edit]

Changes made to the personal life section should only be made if the content is verifiable by a legitamate source such as a news article or official release, or is common knowledge within the fan community. I say this because the band members are very protective of their personal lives and as such, information based upon speculation, rumor, or stalking (this includes unauthorized access to MySpace pages!) is an invasion of privacy and is inappropriate for any venue. That said, I am changing the statement regarding Isaac's supposed engagement for a final time and will leave it to other reasonable people to maintain this stance until such time that a change in this information can be VERIFIED. LaMenta3 07:21, 4 June 2006 (UTC)

I'm removing the remark about Ike and Nikki's "on and off" relationship. It doesn't need to be there and is purely speculative. If you're going to throw that in you may as well slip in the same for all couples since it's been rumoured about them all. Unless you have proof of their on/off status other than your uber secret insider sources, leave it out of the article. Betterthangrant 12:26, 14 April 2007 (UTC)

Mess, mess, mess!!![edit]

This article is a complete mess and shit. It has to be redone and reedited. It's complete shit. The discography sucks ass and the the bio is so shitty that I just feel hardly any interest in the band, speaking from a neutral point of view. It needs more work! More fucking work, you lazy bastards! Painbearer 18:48, 17 July 2006 (UTC)

Your vulgarities are tone are completely uncalled for. You should be ashamed of your language. If you want to improve the page, by all means do so, but do not do so in a vulgar manner. --William 23:00, 24 July 2006 (UTC)

shit shit shit shit shit shit shit shit shit shit shit shit shit. How d'ya like that?

Why do people keep changing it back to 'The Walk'? Even on hanson.net news, and the video they posted up, it says it's going to be titled 'Taking The Walk'. Grrr.

Taylor has said in the July 2006 Hanson.Net chat that the name of the album will be "The Walk". "Taking the Walk" is something different. Some think it might be the upcoming tour, others think it might be the release of the SETB doc but with the making of "The Walk" added on, others think it might be just the making of "The Walk" and so on... no one is really sure yet what "Taking the Walk" truly is, but the album name is definitely "The Walk". (If you notice in the H.Net video it says "a story unfolds" - to me that indicates it's most likely a DVD release of sorts, but that's just speculation on my part and some other fans on H.Net). Crazylamb1 11:34, 8 September 2006 (UTC)

In fairness, this article is a mess. It's completely biased towards the group and certainly needs some neutrality editing done. I honestly thought it was written by the band the first time i read it. Can someone flag it for its bias, or does an admin need oto do that? It really is a mess. 81.76.119.195 16:24, 30 December 2006 (UTC) It is, at the very least, unbalanced. There is way to much information about the band in the last 5 years but literally nothing about the band in 1997, when it was at its height in popularity. There is no mention in the bio of the release of their Middle of Nowhere album. It just skips that and has tons of info on Hanson in 2005-2006, though I think most people who search for the article want to know about the Hanson of the late 1990s not the current Hanson.

Why was the vandalism protection seal removed?[edit]

I added it so people wouldn't vandalize for fun. *confused*

"Boomerang continues to be circulated online"[edit]

Which is worse, the fact that I think that's funny or the fact that I read it in the first place?


Actually you can buy it off Ebay, but it ain't cheap! Same thing for Mmmbop, MOE(Middle Of Everywhere former fanclub name), and H.net(current) cd's and packs, even though the membership club packs are not for redistribution. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.12.15.122 (talk) 01:40, 11 July 2009 (UTC)

Pictures[edit]

I saw a video of Hanson before. They looked very different from these pictures. I think they have slightly longer hair than this but I could be wrong.203.184.5.17 (talk) 08:50, 17 February 2008 (UTC)

What pictures and what doea this have to do with the article. Album covers are obviously taken at a particular time. --neonwhite user page talk 16:05, 17 February 2008 (UTC)

Pop Culture[edit]

In tonight's (10/14/2008) episode of House, it was revealed that House's ringtone for his 'team' is Hanson's MmmBop.Solonmonkey (talk) 00:18, 15 October 2008 (UTC)solonmonkey

Reference to band member's son's "nickname" from a fan and professsional editor[edit]

Hi. I'm a bit concerned on this page about the reference to Zac's son: "...and Zac's son John Ira ("Da Crunk Shep")."

Please correct me if I'm wrong and this is some sort of family inside joke I'm not aware of; if the child's parents choose to nickname their toddler "da crunk shep," I'm not trying to intervene —— unless for some reason the child was actually getting "crunk"...then I'd be concerned. Admittedly, I'm a longtime fan, but but my interest in Zac, Taylor, and Isaac's personal lives is pretty much nonexistent compared to the attention I paid when I was 11. But I read the Hanson wiki page for the first time in years today, and I couldn't not say anything about that unedited, uncited "nickname" on wikipedia.

I'm just leaving this comment in case somebody who DOES know can clear this up. If weirdo on the internet was making up a "RapperThatDoesn'tKnowHowtoSpellThe" nicknames for any couple's young child and posting it to Wikipedia, I'd have to bring it up regardless of who the parents are or what my knowledge of the toddler's nickname was.


Either way, I hope this helps. Devon Claire devonclaire@gmail.com — Preceding unsigned comment added by Devonclaire (talkcontribs) 10:16, 6 November 2011 (UTC)

Not done:. Sorry, but you are going to need to be more specific than that. Where would you like it to be added? Would you like it with that caption, or another one? What would you like the alt text to be? Once you have all of that information ready, please reopen this edit request. Best — Mr. Stradivarius ♪ talk ♪ 09:54, 20 January 2014 (UTC)
you can put it anywhere you feel is appropriate either make it the info box photo or put it under the 2013 section on their page and yes that is the caption I would like to used since that is the caption I put and it doesn't need an alt caption thank you.

Charitable acts section[edit]

Firstly, "charitable acts" doesn't sound encyclopedic. Perhaps this should be changed to "Philanthropy". More importantly however, this section seems to have irrelevant/unexplained content:

1) "Hanson toured South America, Mexico, Brazil, Argentina and Europe and performed their first full electric shows in Australia during the 2005 "Live and Electric" tour."

This doesn't show how the tour was a "charitable act"..in fact, the way it is currently written seems to hilariously/condescendingly imply that them touring South America/Europe/Australia is "charity" on their part.

2) "The Walk tour was suspended after Isaac underwent lifesaving surgery for a pulmonary embolism.[37] Doctors treated his condition by relieving blood flow restrictions caused by excess chest muscle and scar tissue from the repetitive motions of guitar playing.[38] The tour resumed with Midwest and East Coast dates March through May, 2008.[39] The brothers wrapped up the second leg of "The Walk Tour" after playing 20 concerts in four weeks."

Not sure how having medical/health issues is a charitable act. And again, current content doesn't show how this tour was "charitable".

The above content, if irrelevant, can probably be relocated to the Band's History sections. I'm not familiar with the band, so I didn't change anything, in case the above content is in fact relevant but the actual "charitable" part was just not explained. Hopefully someone with more knowledge about this band can clean this section up. Bennv3771 (talk) 05:07, 22 March 2017 (UTC)
