The lead vocalist of the rock band Maroon 5 Adam Levine is under fire after his recent remarks he made during an interview with Zane Lowe on Apple Music.
In case you missed it, Levine proclaimed that there are no more bands and it’s becoming a dying breed and it kind of makes him sad.
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? That’s the thing that makes me kind of sad, is that there were just bands. There are 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.
These remarks didn’t sit very well on Twitter and several ‘Keyboard Warriors’ decided to speak up against Levine’s unfounded and incorrect claims.
One twitter user wrote:
“Adam Levine complaining ‘there’s no bands anymore’ is like the owner of Starbucks complaining there are no local coffee shops anymore.”
Someone responded to Levine’s tweet with a clapback at Maroon 5.
According to Pop Buzz, Levine is yet to respond to the backlash, however, there is no appeasing Music Twitter now.
Rough Trade even listed a number of band in response to Levine’s claim.
There is no ‘Sugar’-coating the fact that Levine has to do some serious damage control here.
