Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.

Shut your traps, "MMMbop" haters. The Hanson trio proves they know and respect rock legends with this cover of Radiohead's "Optimistic," which has been recently making the rounds on the interwebs, even though it debuted on YouTube more than six months ago.

Taylor Hanson gives singer Thom Yorke a run for his money on the track, which is even more delightful considering the wild screams heard from the audience. See, we Hanson fans are a diverse crowd!

A new Hanson album will drop in May 2010, and they'll also be playing the Bamboozle Festival, with Valley band The Maine, in New Jersey May 1. Check out the awesome cover:

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
