BuzzFeed’s Matt Stopera made quite a bold statement on Monday: “Hanson’s current version of ‘MMMBop’ is better than their 1997 version.”

His evidence, this September 2012 Hansen performance:

Whether he’s right or not about that is not for me to say — that’s in the eye of the 60,000 beholders who clicked on the post.

But what’s clear is that the best-ever version of the song comes from a 1997 Phish soundcheck at Spiaggia di Rivoltella in Desenzano, Italy. Drummer Jon Fishman sings the tune in the style of James Brown. It is glorious.
