Maroon 5

Helmed by charismatic frontman Adam Levine and his captivating falsetto and knack for crafting instantly earwormy pop nuggets, Maroon 5 have experienced a remarkable rise to fame since the release of their 2002 debut, <i>Songs About Jane.</i> The album became an overnight success propelled by hit singles “Harder to Breathe,” “This Love” and “She Will Be Loved.” Their breakthrough effort even helped earn the band a Grammy for Best New Artist in 2005. Though it took nearly five years for the L.A. pop-rock crew to regroup for their 2007 sophomore follow-up, <i>It Won’t Be Soon Before Long,</i> the five-piece was welcomed back with open arms and another string of chart-topping hits. The band’s momentum forward was only enhanced by Adam Levine's acceptance of a role as a judge on the singing competition series, <i>The Voice,</i> in 2011, after which the band found renewed success in their 2012 full-length, <i>Overexposed.</i>
