Adam Levine, singer of pop band Maroon 5, has made the headlines today after complaining about a supposed lack of bands nowadays during an interview with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe.
“That’s the thing that makes me kind of sad, is that there were just bands”, Levine whinged, before doubling down, “there’s no bands anymore, and I feel like they’re a dying breed”. I wonder if it’s worth theorising that Levine, who was a coach on The Voice for about eight years, could’ve been doing more to curb the half-baked, imaginary problem he’s conjured up.
Shortly thereafter Levine proceeds to contradict himself: “I mean, there still are plenty of bands”.
After claiming that Maroon 5‘s new single sounds like ‘old blink-182‘, Levine makes the bizarre decision to insinuate that blink-182 are almost a hidden gem in the music industry. “What a lot of people don’t realize about blink-182 specifically, because they are who we were talking about, they wrote great songs”. But wait! He isn’t done!
“Those were great songs”. Thanks for the insight, Adam.
The Voice coach’s band have just returned with a new single, ‘Beautiful Mistakes’, featuring Megan Thee Stallion. So, no need to fear, bands are saved!
