In anticipation for their upcoming concert, let us add our knowledge on the band through these facts:
- Their name wasn’t ‘Maroon 5’
No matter how you hear it, or read it, the name, ‘Maroon 5’ truly exudes coolness and sophistication. Most of us don’t even know what ‘Maroon 5’ means, and yet when we hear it, we can’t help but think about those six cool guys, front-lined by the cooler guy, ‘Adam Levine’. But do you think that these six guys would still look as dandy as they do now under a name other than, ‘Maroon 5’? The band’s been present since 1995 and was originally called, Kara’s flowers. What do you guys think?
- They are geniuses!
They participated in Coca-Cola’s ’24 Hour Project’. During the 24 hours, they wrote, arranged and recorded their famous single, Is Anybody Out There. All I can do in twenty-four hours is panic, eat, sleep, and cram. Kudos to them!
- Kara’s Flowers
When they were still Kara’s flowers, they got discovered while playing in a house party in Malibu by someone from Reprise Records, they signed a deal and they released their first album “The Fourth World,” which flopped leading to Reprise Records dropping the band. But all went well, though, if they hadn’t flopped, we fans wouldn’t have been blessed with Maroon 5.
- Jane was real
In their album ‘Songs About Jane’, Adam Levine revealed that each song was inspired by Levine’s relationship with his ex-girlfriend, Jane. Every single contains at least one line particularly written about his ex-girlfriend. This love was the story of their break up.
- Adam’s friends
Adam is childhood friends with actors Jason Segel, Jonah Hill and Jake Gyllenhaal. They have such tight friendship that Jonah Hill even presided over Adam Levine’s and Behati Prinsloo’s wedding.
