Retro Snap: Do You Remember This Boy Band?

hanson

My friends and I had legitimate crushes on them when we were 11.

That seems really bizarre now, right? Hanson. Hanson. What happened to them? It must have been great to have been a kid in the 60′s and have had a huge crush on The Beatles, and later get to say that you had a Beatles poster over your bed. Forever.

Christ, old people.  Doing things better all the time.

    LOVED them. I had 2.5 walls covered with pics and posters in my room. :) Which is funny because my mother’s bedroom looked similar but with Beatles pics. :)
    They still make music, stuff’s still good too. :)

    I feel like because they all grew up to be normal, functioning adults (they all have tons of kids and are married now!) it almost legitimizes how crazy a teen-crush I had on them. Not like some of the other J-14 stars of my day who didn’t turn out so well-adjusted and desperate to keep their fame.

    They were roaming around SXSW in 2011. Not sure exactly why but they were there.

    They’re still around making music and it’s very good. I suggest you check it out!

    I loved them up until I started getting called “Hanson” in seventh grade. Kids are jerks.

    (I admit, though, the middle brother was pretty enough that it might have been a compliment about how nice my hair was?)
