Busted team up with Hanson for new version of ‘MMMBop’
Hanson will support Busted on their 20th anniversary greatest hits tour of the UK later this year, and to celebrate the two bands have come together for the re-worked track.
“It’s been such an honour to sing this ’90s classic song with the band who made it 25 years on from original release!” Busted’s James Bourne said in a statement.
“To have them as special guests on tour with us in September will be really special too, we’re huge fans of Hanson!”
Hanson’s Taylor Hanson added: “It’s been a thrill to reimagine MMMBop with Busted and to see how a song with such history comes to life in a new way. This is a true fusion of Hanson and Busted, we can’t wait to share it.”

As part of their 20th anniversary celebrations, Busted will be unveiling 15 re-worked songs from their back catalogue alongside a host of artists.
The band also recently added extra dates to their 2023 UK reunion tour. The trio are set to hit the road in September to mark their 20th anniversary. They will play a special greatest hits set at arenas across the country, including The O2 in London.
