Hanson brothers compare Justin Bieber's music to chlamydia

Hanson, who you probably know from the '97 hit ' Mmmbop' even though they've released a shitload of other tunes in the 20-odd years since, have taken a stab at Justin Bieber's music by likening it to chlamydia of all bloody things.

During a recent visit to Hit107 FM in Adelaide, Isaac, Taylor, and Zac Hanson tried to name chart toppers for a game of "Whose Song Is It Anyway?".

Hanson brother 1: "I prefer not to get any venereal diseases". According to Page Six, they failed to guess the three artists behind the hit song "Despacito": Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee and Bieber. Hanson brother 2: "Chlamydia of the ear".

Zac continued, "It's just ear infections".

The song, which is the first Spanish number to top the Billboard charts since Macarena in 1996, was a little too hard for the Canadian to sing.

Hanson is now in the midst of a worldwide tour to commemorate the 20th anniversary of their breakthrough album Middle of Everywhere and their 25 years together as a band.

Your primary school self's favourite non-boyband boyband Hanson have marked their arrival in Australia by serving up a mean MMM~Burn~ on one Justin Drew Bieber. When the hosts played "Despacito", the Bieber/Luis Fonsi/Daddy Yankee collab that is now the biggest song in the world, Hanson had no idea what it was.
