Maroon 5 is a pop rock band from Los Angeles. It is composed of 6 male musicians, all from the same high school. Its largest success is "Moves Like Jagger", which sold more than 7 million copies worldwide, making itself one of the most successful singles of all time.
The original members of the band were from Brentwood School of Los Angeles. There, they formed a small group, known as Kara's Flowers, a nod to the person they all had a crush on at sometime in their histories. They were discovered at a beach party in Malibu, where a producer, Tommy Allen, offered to manage them, and record them.
Maroon 5 is a pop band, and follows the protocols for pop, namely the AB, Chorus, BC style. Their music is often personal, speaking about their past loves, although they do depart from that style occasionally, and use a more impersonal and harsh tone.
