Maroon 5 is an American pop rock band formed by high school friends Adam Levine, Jesse Carmichael, Mickey Madden and Ryan Dusick in Los Angeles, California.

Originally playing under the name Kara’s Flowers while in high school, the group became Maroon 5 after adding guitarist James Valentine to the lineup and letting their musical direction mature while each member attended college.

The new urban edge and pop-soul sound their time at college had lent to the band’s music proved successful and their debut album “Songs About Jane” sold 5 million albums in the US. Singles “Harder to Breathe” and “She Will Be Loved” quickly propelled the band to mega-stardom.

The success of Maroon 5’s debut album in 2002 caught the attention of John Mayer, The Rolling Stones, Sugar Ray, Gavin DeGraw, The Hives and multiple other bands, all of whom Maroon 5 has toured alongside. While three years of constant touring did wonders for the band’s popularity and fan base, it took its toll on drummer Ryan Dusick, who was forced to leave the band in 2006 due to injury.

With Dusick replaced by Matt Flynn, the band gifted the world some new music and released their 2007 album “It Won’t Be Soon Before Long” which broke iTunes records by selling over 101,000 albums within the first week of its release. The single “Makes Me Wonder” was a sexy departure from the band’s sweeter tracks on “Songs About Jane” and subsequently took the US by storm, hitting the number one spot on the Billboard charts.

The band’s other albums – “Hands All Over”, “Overexposed” and “V” – have all performed similarly and each hit either the number one or number two spot in the US album chart. The band’s most successful single, though, is the 2011 megahit “Moves Like Jagger” which saw the band collaborate with Christina Aguilera and has sold a staggering 15 million copies, making it one of the best selling singles of all time.

Citing the kings of reinvention, Michael Jackson and Prince, among their influences, it is almost certain that Maroon 5 will be a band to last the ages. Add this to the quality of their work and you know that Maroon 5 are well on their way to becoming living legends.
