Adam Levine, lead singer of Maroon 5, is sad that there are no more bands. In a new interview with Zane Lowe at Apple Music to discuss Maroon 5’s new song “Beautiful Mistakes,” starring Megan Tee Stallion, Levin complains about the lack of bands in the current pop landscape and wails nostalgically on the band’s chalk days. Avril Lavigne:
You look back at these things and, it’s funny, I was showing my child music videos, my little girl. And it’s funny how you go back and browse like these old videos and listen to these old songs, and I play a lot of recordings of Avril Lavigne. Like, dude, “I’m with you”; is like – this, yes, this makes you cry. It’s crazy because you don’t remember it the same way, because you took it for granted, because it was like when you grew up and it was just part of what you have on the radio. But there are some really great songs that I didn’t realize then how good they were.
It’s funny that when Maroon 5’s first album came out, there were still other bands. I feel like there are no more bands, you know? What saddens me is that there were just bands. There are no more groups and I have the feeling that they are a dying breed. So, in a weird way, as far as … I mean, there are still a lot of bands, and maybe they’re not so much in the spotlight nor in the pop light, but I’d like to have more than others.
More Maroon 5s!
