First, let’s start with Hanson. Yeah that’s right fool, I said Hanson. The brothers Hanson exploded on the scene in ’97 with their smash hit “MMMBop,” which drove me crazy, but reached number 1 in 27 countries.
The brothers Hanson all decided to grow up, get married, have kids, and drop off the map. They just popped up back on the radar in Australia covering Taylor Swift’s “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together”…like ever!
That’s two bands. Let’s move onto three.
The Dust Brothers recorded the double platinum Paul’s Boutique with the Beastie Boys in ’89 in a living room in Los Angeles. The big thing for this album was that they sampled a total of 105 songs, which at the time didn’t have to be cleared, making it possible for the album to be made.
If Paul’s Boutique was recorded today, it would cost millions to clear the samples and wouldn’t be fiscally possible. That’s three, sucka.
