One Direction nailed it when they performed Hanson’s 1997 smash hit song “MMMBop” at their show in St. Louis last August 27.
Just the crazy hit chorus was more than enough to make the fans go crazy. As you can see every One Direction- Hanson fan sings the lines perfectly. And since it’s pretty unlikely that Hanson will cover 1D any time soon, this is the closest we’re gonna get.
While the guys kind of butchered the lyrics on the chorus, their falsetto vocals and sweet dance moves were more than enough to make up for it according to media source.
Check out the video below.
This isn’t the first time that the boy band showed off their love for the ‘Middle of Nowhere” rockstars — in 2013, Harry Styles and his pal Nick Grimshaw donned blonde wigs and imitated the band circa ’97, tweeting:
I was part of Hanson.
