Cry/rejoice.  I thought they weren't bad, had some decent stuff, had some meh stuff.  I'm surprised it took them this long.

Well, we can all rest easy knowing that Hanson is still out there making music.

I bought their first album back in 1996 and wasn't very impressed. They sounded like an uninspired mix between Pearl Jam and Nirvana/Soundgarden/whatever.
I assumed they split up in the early 2000s. Guess I was wrong.

Same here.  Anyhow, I can see (and hear) the influence Nirvana had on this band, and while I'm not really a fan of this kind of music, I do admit liking the song Tomorrow.  In the bigger picture, it's nothing more than another band sailing off into history....

Daniel Johns, the lead guiatarist, had bad arthritis in his hands so they stopped playing for a while, then they came back in 2007 and released a new album, of which the single "Straight Lines" became a huge hit here, and was a departure from the grunge they previously released.  Its more of a mainstream track, but its a good song nonetheless.

That being said, I only like a few of their songs, but I'm not surprised they have gone on 'indefinite hiatus.'

They did start to go far away from their grunge sound and I think they collaborated with Van Dyke Parks on their last 2 albums which certainly helped.  Can't say I was a big fan or anything but I liked some of their music.

Yep me too.  They were kind of part of the second wave grunge scene with bands like STP, Candlebox, etc. I'm not a big fan but I do like this song (already posted by Joe above).  I relate to it for obvious reasons.
