Adam Levine is sad that there are no bands anymore.
In a new interview with Zane Lowe on Apple Music, the Maroon 5 singer said, “It’s funny, when the first Maroon 5 album came out there were still other bands. I feel like there aren’t any bands anymore, you know?”
He continued, “There’s no bands anymore, and I feel like they’re a dying breed. And so I kind of, in a weird way, as far as … I mean, there still are plenty of bands, and maybe they’re not in the limelight quite as much, or in the pop limelight, but I wish there could be more of those around.”
Levine also revealed that he’s been playing old Avril Lavigne records for his daughter, saying, “Like, dude, ‘I’m With You’ is like — it’s, yeah, that gives you tears. It’s crazy, because you don’t remember it in 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’s some really great songs that I didn’t understand how good they were back then.”
Maroon 5’s latest single “Beautiful Mistakes” featuring Megan Thee Stallion is out now.
