* LongHairedPrettyBoy: Considering their [[DudeLooksLikeALady effeminate-looking appearances]] in their youth and being the heartthrobs of girls everywhere, the Hanson brothers were definitely this during the height of their success.


* ExecutiveMeddling: Why they left Island Def Jam Records, as mentioned above.



* WhatCouldHaveBeen: The band wrote eighty songs in the process of making ''Underneath''. Only fourteen found their way to the album. Some have since appeared on later albums and fanclub [=EPs=], but many are still unaccounted for. Also the song "Breaktown" was considered for ''This Time Around'', ''Underneath'', AND ''The Walk'', but has yet to appear on any album.


* {{Homage}}: The video for "Thinking 'Bout Somethin'" is a near shot for shot recreation of the "Shake A Tail Feather" scene from TheBluesBrothers.
** Not the first or the last one of those either, as they're very fond of playing both "Shake a Tail Feather" and "Gimme some lovin'" in live shows.

Hanson is a {{Pop}} band from TheNineties, made up of Jordan Taylor Hanson, lead vocalist and keyboardist; Clarke Isaac Hanson, the guitarist, and Zachary Walker Hanson, the drummer. They produced their first albums, ''Boomerang'' and ''[=MMMBop=]'' (on which the title track and Hanson's most famous song would first appear), in 1995 and 1996. After playing their song "[=MMMBop=]" for a guy at Mercury Records, they eventually released their first well-known album, ''Middle of Nowhere'', in 1997. The upbeat, catchy signature track, "[=MMMBop=]", won the hearts of many girls... [[DudeLooksLikeALady and male fans who thought they were girls]]. However, despite many compilation albums, Hanson and "[=MMMBop=]" became a distant memory among the general public in a few years.
