Can't Touch the MMMBop

A new boxed set excavates the '90s

Result: Stocked with this kind of band, the Warped Tour eventually became a reliable sold-out show in big venues.

Good or bad:Good.

Artist, song: Hanson, "MMMBop"

Where and when: Radio, MTV and everywhere else, summer 1997.

Significance:This track was produced by the Dust Brothers, who helped set the stage for '70s retro with the Beastie Boys' Paul's Boutique. Here, they swung the pendulum in the other direction.

Result: The Hanson brothers' smash opened the door for far glitzier teen acts, who would deliver mainstream music back to the hands of pop stars.

Good or bad: Good if you're glad to hear 'N Sync on the radio; bad if you'd rather hear Sublime.
