Years ago, I saw a Tumblr screenshot of a Twitter screenshot on Instagram that claimed Maroon 5 made a deal with the devil to get their songs to #1 in exchange for being nobody’s favorite. It has never been proven wrong, and I don’t think it ever will.

Songs About Jane is a masterpiece 💿 “This Love” is a really unique song musically imo, try to find another mainstream pop song that starts its progression with the dominant chord leading to the minor tonic with the 3rd in the bass 🤓

A while back, I had this idea for a TV show inspired by Maroon 5. It's a mockumentary about this successful band whose singer is the only one the public cares about, so while the singer gets all the fame, groupies, brand deals and press coverage, the rest of the band gets to just fart around and do whatever without much attention. Think of it like a cross between Parks & Rec and Metalocalypse. There'd be a running gag where the singer would show up every few episodes but you'd never see his face due to some clever blocking, except for the final episode where we finally see his face, and he's played by Adam Levine.

​@CityBoy20 honestly in terms of rock/rock-adjacent music it's more common than you'd think because the radio friendly chunk of the genre stagnated so hard, it's not like the transition from the 70s to 80s or 80s to 90s where every prog band went in a poppier direction or every hair metal band tanked completely because of the new subgenres (grunge of course being the main one) replacing it. Coldplay and fucking Nickelback are still around because hip hop overtook it as the thing that has a popular innovative new subgenre every few years.

In Bo Burnham’s Repeat Stuff music video, he has a moment where he sings at girls but every cut has a different girl in the shot in order to show how a lot of modern pop songs are written as vague as possible in order to create parasocial relationships. So yeah, Maroon 5 did the same thing genuinely in the Girls Like You music video, proving Bo’s point. Just thought that was interesting.

Todd from Todd in the shadows made a comparison between Maroon 5 and Chicago, and to be honest I think that makes a lot more sense than the garth brooks comparison. Chicago spent the late 60s to the mid 70s putting out very highly acclaimed albums that were very fun, a bit prog, horn heavy, definitely remembered fondly… then “If You Leave Me Now” dropped in 1976 and became their biggest hit ever. A kinda sleepy ballad with none of the classic Chicago touches like a horn section, but in my opinion, not a bad song whatsoever. But after the next couple albums didn’t perform well commercially, and one of their members died, they basically decided to change up producers, change up sound by diminishing the horn section to a couple cameos per album, and spent the 80s and 90s pumping out ballads using whatever sounds were popular for the time. Now personally I like most of those Chicago ballads but still, the comparison has to be made. Also, I think the other obvious comparison is Coldplay. Started getting popular around the same time as Maroon 5, and after their 2000s output spent the 2010s and the first couple years of the 2020s trying to follow trends to mixed results.

Maroon 5 are musical tofu. They absorb the things they are adjacent to, giving you a simulacrum of a flavor you like without actually being the flavor. But that also means they’re entirely synthetic, lacking in an identity of their own. They’re a substance that lacks its own substance. That gives them malleability, but also disposability, since the same experience can be gotten elsewhere and in better form. I don’t hate Maroon 5 for this, because there’s nothing to hate. There’s also nothing for me to like.

@booboosnack I never said anything about texture. I talked about FLAVOR, and drew a comparison of tofu's flavorless nature and how it abosrbs flavors around it when cooked to the way Maroon 5 does that with musical genres. It is not a knock on the value, texture, or importance of tofu in Asian cuisine and culture. It is a comment on its functionality and nature, and using it as a comparative tool to Marron 5's equally malleable existence that incorporates from the music around them but doesn't exhibit anything uniquely THEM.

Is tofu harvested from an animal or a plant? No. It's manufactured. And your asserting that my statement ignores how tofu exists is Asian cultures is ridiculous, since culture and nations where it is used has NOTHING TO DO WITH MY POINT. Tofu, regardless of where it's cooked, is not meant as a standalone food product. It is meant to be included in something else and to adopt the flavor of something else. A steak can be cooked by itself; tofu is meant to be cooked with another flavor to take on that flavor. So everything I said is true. I didn't say that makes tofu bad; just that that's its nature.

@Graham Kristensen well, yeah; those are generally a lot better than his pop song reviews, because he has to do actual research for them, rather than just taking the piss out of an artist for rephrasing an ancient adage or anything else he doesn't understand at a glance. my critiques of his work were towards his reviews (which he still does fairly regularly, and are a part of 1HW and, to an even lesser extent, Trainwreckords), not his edutainment respectives. Todd himself has noted quite often that he doesn't really see himself as a very good critic, so I think it's absolutely fair to dive into why that is. from my perspective, he is fun and edutaining, but not someone I look to for fair, thoughtful critique, as I don't think he's particularly either as a critic.

Having seen Adam Levine play some low-key jam sessions and/or collab on The Voice with other musicians, and now having listened to some of the music their keyboardist has done, I have my theory for why Maroon 5 is still around: all the members know that it's a consistent cash cow, and then they can use that money to fuck off and do whatever interesting thing they like. No pressure to be "good" in the traditional sense (critical acclaim), but plenty of continuous money and radio play. I've seen when Adam Levine is really interested in what he's doing, and to me, it's really obvious that he sees Maroon 5 the way I see my day job, and anything interesting he might be doing musically isn't anything he bothers to record or release outside of some small live venues.

In a weird way, Maroon 5 selling out like they did made their early stuff stand out way more. Had they just faded away going into the 2010s I probably never would have taken interest in them outside of maybe knowing a few early hits and not caring. The fact that they so aggressively turned into the money chasing Adam-centric pop machine and stuck around a solid 12 years past their expiration date just continuously eroding their quality is super fascinating to me. I almost hyperfixate on this band just because I find their career trajectory so interesting. I really have grown to enjoy those early records due to the sharp contrast of what came after. Definitely the band of all time

~22:00 Hypothesis: the obsession with talking about Jagger in that period arose not from an obsession with the man himself, but from the fact that it rhymes with the hot new slang term of the day, “swagger”. Swagger was the primary target, and Jagger was merely caught in the crossfire. From here, with the name Jagger now embedded in the public lexicon, Maroon 5 was only taking the next logical step...(?)
James 3 aylar önce
Yeah this theory definitely holds up. I'm pretty sure it was Kesha who started the whole "Swagger/Jagger" thing in her song "Tik Tok", and the next logical step was taken by Cher Lloyd who made a whole song out of it with "Swagger Jagger" - a song that is still to this day one of the worst songs I've ever heard. And so I guess Maroon 5 represented the final culmination of that absolutely insane trend when they made a song about how Adam Levine had the "moves like Jagger" (still an absolutely buckwild mental image) without even mentioning Swagger at all.

There's a Gandhi demo floating around TRvid, and some of its songs even made their way into later Helmet album. If you know anything about Helmet you know how far their sound is from Maroon 5's

I remember loving and falling out of favor with Maroon 5's songs. Misery was epic, Give A Little More is classic, Moves Like Jagger is iconic like its fellow Jagger contemporary Tiktok by Ke$ha, and from discovery on Spotify, Makes Me Wonder is iconic. But as they progressed, and as much as Animals reminded me of the FNAF frenzy, I fell out of love with them. And unlike Bruno Mars, it's not due to a tonal shift. It's just that they didn't vary it like they used to.

I don't know if this is the first DDD, where at the end I've said, "No thank you." Main thing I think about them, is once they opened for Mustard Plug, and Mustard Plug apologized to the audience. Any other random thoughts about Maroon5 are negative, whereas seeing Mustard Plug, with Catbite opening, was what I needed after a bad breakup and a night ill cherish forever.

Flabbergasted by the fact that you didn't highlight Tangled from Songs about Jane... Such a cool track. Imo it might be the best in their discography. It's such a "musicians' song". The amount of musicians I've spoken to who love this track is quite impressive. Especially for a deep cut. Even people who otherwise doesn't care that much for Maroon 5. I also know a couple of drum teachers who happen to regularly teach Tangled to their students. But I guess that's just the beauty of music. The fact that it hits us all differently and that there's something for all of us.

i was a kid/middle schooler when their early albums come out. ive got a nostalgia for some of their early records the way you really only can for stuff you listened to during that age. i stand by my belief that some of their singles are pretty good. catchy, good hooks, nice melodies. but to say they have some clunkers is putting it mildly

Mic, I hate Maroon 5 but I loved this video. It's honestly great that there's someone around who treats even (supposedly) shitty music seriously, and tries to dissect what's behind it critically without just making lazy cringe content. Good job as usual!

I have never listened to a full Maroon 5's album, but I absolutely love some of their singles. "This Love", "Makes Me Wonder", and "Misery" are great and fresh songs (maybe because I don't hear that type of sound in modern music). "Moves Like Jagger" is a bop, and I love the energy that Christina brings to that song. And omg, the four singles of Overexposed just bring me so much nostalgia for my early teenage years (especially "Love Somebody", I love it). "Maps" is okay, and I do like "Animals". But "Sugar" though? I'm in love with that song: It's funny, it's carchy, it's simple. Post-Sugar Maroon 5's music hasn't hit the same to me, but that's mostly because I HATE the popular sound of 2017-2020 trap, hip hop and / or tropical beats that were everywhere back then. I'm curious about their future. I just don't see them reaching the same heights as the ones from the early 2010's, but it's interesting to see what they do next

Maybe its a bit of an obscure track, but my Maroon 5 nostalgia is for a feature Adam Levine did with Canadian rapper K'Naan on his song Bang Bang. It's just such a peppy, silly song and it still makes me smile to think of it.

For the longest time I thought Moves Like Jagger was called Moves Like Dragons. That whistling is vaguely "oriental" and I only ever heard it in background situations, like at work. I had no idea that song is 12 years old. Midwest pop radio just plays whatever and I haven't paid attention to who is on the charts for like two decades.

I actually wonder if their current pop success is causing their 2000s output to be forgotten, to the point where once they call it quits their music will be forgotten entirely. You could say it really makes me--

I get what you're saying about Garth, but he was the first country star to really be an inescapable, world-conquering pop star. I'd probably argue that almost every successful male country artist since has followed his blueprint to some extent. His impact is still clearly felt that way.

He clearly does not go to karaoke bars often if he says he doesn't hear Garth's music because Friends in Low Places is one of the most excessively overdone songs in the entire catalog of music

Wow it really was that quick of a change. Those first three albums basically bookended my childhood their first (one of my older sister’s all time favorites that she played all the time) came out when I was in third grade, and their third durning my junior/senior year of high school. As an adolescent I considered myself a maroon 5 fanatic I was ecstatic to see them coming in concert on my birthday! And begged for those tickets. Originally I thought I was just outgrowing pop music but seeing it all laid out like this yeah those first albums were a distinct era for the band, and for me.

I think the fondness of songs about Jane also stems from how ubiquitous it was at the time - you couldn’t help having it soundtrack some part of your life. Also I personally slayed This Love on og singstar, so maybe I’m biased!

I love that Moves Like Jagger got it's own section bc to me that was the turning point of Maroon 5, of where they crossed over and became the Maroon 5 that we know today. Hit machine, corporate pop rock Maroon 5, etc. Everything before and up to this point was good to solid pop rock, after this, they did exactly as you said, chased hits wildly regardless of quality (and sometimes it was quality -- Maps is great and so is One More Night -- Sugar and Girls Like You on the other hand are very much not) It's not often that you can trace a single song as the turning/pivotal moment in an artist's discography that defines their M.O. since then, but 'Moves Like Jagger' is 100% percent the turning point for Maroon 5.

Can you do a dive on First Aid Kit? It’s a Swedish folk band made up of two sisters and I adore them to bits. They only have 6 albums but I think they are genuinely incredible and I need more people to know about them. Also when the two harmonize? I ascend to another planet it’s so beautiful-

I've stuck with them for so long simply because they were my first CD and first musical love. The early melody driven music they made led to me modern alternative rock and a lot of great classic rock that I deeply enjoy. Their new albums are definitely not my favorite, but I can usually find a song or two in there that scratches that original itch that they did for me. Also REALLY glad you shouted out Closure! That song feels like the band honestly getting closure on them being a musical act like they were, and saying goodbye to it with one long band R&B jam session for the ages. I never thought I would have an 11 minute song on repeat, but it's simply amazing.
