The Good: Some 15 million records later, Maroon 5's soul-pop has become nearly ubiquitous on the radio. Of course, what people can see is almost as important as what they hear, which is why lead singer Adam Levine rarely has a shirt on.
The Bad: If you've walked through a shopping mall you've definitely heard M5's latest hit 'Moves Like Jagger.' But such Jagger appreciation is an awkward thing. There are two distinct periods in the history of The Rolling Stones, the early dangerous period (circa Altamont) and the later leotard period (circa disco). Maroon 5 prefer the leotard period.
The Disparaging Words: "People hated Creed. They don't hate us. At worst, they just don't really like us. Creed were easy to hate and we're just, you know, easy to disregard," said a sorta self-aware Adam Levine.
