Hanson Gets Together to Cover “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together”

It’ll always be a little bit nerve-racking when a band covers Taylor Swift’s “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” for fear that they’re trying to tell you something about their future as a group with the song’s message. Luckily, former “MMMBop”ing brothers Hanson appear as strong a family band as ever strumming along to Taylor’s breakup smash, even working in some great harmonies to the solo number. Lead singer Taylor unfortunately takes a pass on recreating the phone conversation of the song’s final pre-chorus (“THIS IS EXHAUSTING!“) but he does get in the spoken word “Like…ever” of the first post-chorus, so we’ll forgive his omission. The chords on the bridge are pretty anyway.
By the way, wouldn’t “Taylor Hanson” be a brilliant(ly confusing) name for a DJ product mashing up Hanson and Taylor Swift songs? “Where’s the Love Story”? “I Will Come to You Belong With Me”? This is just the greatest idea we’ve ever had.
