Let's just say I'm "pessimistic" about this...

hahaha!

When I run out of clever and original material, we will all experience Never.

I feel bad for them though
it seems like they really have improved upon their taste in music, and they have a genuine desire to make music that is not mainstream, but they'll never be accepted by the 'indie kids'...if they do, the world will begin turning the opposite way

I have to give them credit though, when they started out the oldest was what 14 or something. They could play their own instuments, they could sing somewhat, there songs just left a lot to be desired unless of course you were a 14 year old girl and it that case you had all you desired...I mean look at most kids who break into the industry at that age. Most of them don't even know how to hold a guitar no less make an F chord. They've stuck it out, hopefully they've all gone through puberty now and their voices have finished changing. They are still together and for brothers that's hard. I haven't heard anything since mmmbop, but I still give them some credit. And apparently they have quite a following and not just 14 year old girls anymore, I saw a venue back in Dallas one day with a line wrapped around the building of all these highschool college age kids and asked my friend who was playing because I hadn't seen this club this packed since the White Stripes...he said it's an acoustic show by Hanson

So who knows.

I've been thinking about this (pathetic, I know). It makes sense. Hanson are trying to be indie now, so maybe they think covering Radiohead will help their case. It's a pretty big gap between early Hanson fans and Radiohead fans--a gap Hanson are now trying to bridge.

I for one don't want to hear anyone covering Radiohead (well, maybe The Darkness ), but I can't say I blame them in light of what they're trying to accomplish musically now.
