Adam Levine, lead singer of the band Maroon 5, is sad that there are no bands anymore. In a new interview with Zane Lowe on Apple Music to discuss Maroon 5’s new song “Beautiful Mistakes” with Megan Thee Stallion, Levine laments the lack of bands in the current pop landscape and grows nostalgic over bands’ halcyon days as Avril Lavigne:
You look back on those things and it’s funny I’ve shown my kids videos, my little girl. And it’s funny how to go back and watch again like these old videos and listen to these old songs, and I’ve played her a lot of Avril Lavigne records. Like, guy, “I’m with you”; is like – it’s, yeah, it brings you to tears. It’s crazy because you can not remember it the same way, because you took it for granted, because it was like when you were growing up, and it was just part of what you had on the radio. But there are some really good songs that I did not understand how good they were back then.
It’s funny when the first Maroon 5 album came out, there were still other bands. I feel like there are no bands anymore, you know? It’s the thing that makes me a little sad that there were just bands. There are no bands anymore and I feel like they are a dying breed. And so I kind of in a weird way so far … I mean there are still lots of bands, and maybe they are not as much in the spotlight or in the pop spotlight, but I wish there could be more of those around.
More Maroon 5s!
