Hanson compares Justin Bieber's music to an STD

In what could be the most explosive feud since 2Pac versus Biggie (okay, it's not), the Hanson brothers are going after Justin Bieber, with the '90s teen idols comparing the pop star's music to a sexually transmitted disease.

During an interview with an Australian radio station on Sunday, Isaac, Taylor, and Zac Hanson of "MMMBop" fame were challenged to a game of "Whose Song Is It Anyway?" US Weekly reports. They were stumped by Bieber's remix of Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee's "Despacito," and when they were told it was a Bieber song, one Hanson brother said, "Can I just say I'm glad I didn't know what that was? I prefer not to get any venereal diseases, so whenever Justin Bieber gets near me or near my ears, it's just ear infections. Terrible." Another Hanson chimed in, saying, "Chlamydia of the ear. It sucks."

That's right, the Hanson brothers — whose most famous lyrics are "Mmmbop, ba duba dop ba du bop, ba duba dop ba du bop, ba duba dop ba du, yeah" — are not only talking smack about someone else's music, but also going into great detail about STDs on the radio. Bieber hasn't responded yet, but he could be furiously composing a song, trying to figure out a way to make "Hanson" and "herpes" rhyme.
