Hot on the heels of last week’s 50 Cent/Game feud, Maroon 5′s Adam Levine is picking a fight with another bland creation, albeit one that disbanded last year. Via LA Times

Adam Levine: “People hated Creed. They don’t hate us. At worst, they just don’t really like us. Creed … had that attitude, they pontificated about how great they were, they had a horribly generic band. They were easy to hate and we’re just, you know, easy to disregard.”

Can’t really argue with that.

  1. i’d like Adam Levine to know that i do, in fact, hate his band. hate.

    If the enemy of your enemy is your friend…well, at least thats puts me on better terms with Maroon 5. I must now go out and listen to “this love” in my support. Actually, probably not.

    I hate Maroon 5 more than cancer.

  5. rollie  |   Posted on Mar 14th, 2005 0

    Heh, I do think that’s sort of accurate actually.

  6. Meanwhile, I’m convinced Maroon 5 is the most popular band that I have yet to hear a song from. I don’t have any clue what “This Love,” or anything else, sounds like.

    This leads me to believe they can’t suck worse than Creed yet, because I at least know when to turn my stereo off when Creed comes on.

    The man is right, infact I’ve never even heard of them before.

  8. I like them better than Right Said Fred.

  9. Nature loves to hide.

    Well, he should probably take a look into why he thinks Maroon 5 is so easy to disregard. Maybe it’s because that one-hit-wonder song of theirs was POUNDED.. INTO… OUR HEADS… for all of 2004. Easy to disregard, unfortunately hard to ignore.

    i HIGHLY doubt creed “pontificates” anything

  12. BeavisOnCrack  |   Posted on Mar 14th, 2005 0

    I have no problem ignoring them, but then again I dont listen to any kind of radio station that would play their shit, and I like it that way!

  13. marsh  |   Posted on Mar 14th, 2005 0 much as he just did in that interview

  14. dateline  |   Posted on Mar 14th, 2005 0

    i quite agree with him, though i must say his band is very near my “hate” list with all his pompous words. I cant believe how deaf some people are to compare them to Phoenix…!

  15. Gaby From Brazil  |   Posted on Mar 14th, 2005 0

    They are better than Britney Spears =/

  16. gigi  |   Posted on Mar 14th, 2005 0

    Declaring “We suck less than Creed” does no justice to Maroon 5. Everyone sucks less than Creed. That’s like saying “I’m less evil than Hitler.”

  17. I think it’s a safe bet to say that the suckiness of Creed and Maroon 5 are very comparable. Plus, now that Scott Stapp is a fat fuck and the band is no longer around, I can say I hate Maroon 5 more now than I do Creed.

  18. I agree with Gigi – Creed sucks more than anyone. Hell, I’m willing to go out and say Creed sucks more than..Damn, I can’t think of anyone they suck more than because they simply suck the most. More suckage than a 5 dollar hooker on her knees.

  19. I, in fact, hate Adam Levine more than Creed. In fact, I don’t even hate Creed, but Adam Levine and his paper thin voice should be sent to Iraq.

  20. This… band… has… taken its toll on me
    Radio has played that stupid song to death…

  21. sean  |   Posted on Mar 14th, 2005 0

    i liked them in 2002
    i’ve grown since then

  22. Furanku  |   Posted on Mar 15th, 2005 0

    I used to live in a Maroon5less universe (so I hated Creed more) until I joined the gym. When I get on the race track, this guy at the counter puts on this MTV DVD with 3 of their songs. I now hate running. I’m victim of some kind of behavioural conditioning conspiracy. Next: Canadian beef and Our Lady Peace.

  23. Jesus  |   Posted on Mar 15th, 2005 0

    ahhh… with the maroon 5 guy saying what he said, it makes he band that much worse (yeah, i didn’t think it was possible either) but creed sucks a good amount of soggy ass hair as well.

  24. robb  |   Posted on Mar 15th, 2005 0

    If only they would take this beef to the streets, (where beefs belong). Maybe it would result with a shoot out and we wouldn’t have to hear from any of them again. Adam Levine can issue disses on KISS FM.

  25. aperson  |   Posted on Mar 15th, 2005 0

    i cannot believe that u guys think creed sucks..scott stapps voice is amazing and mark tremontis guitar playing is great…maroon 5 has absolutely nothing…not a good lead singer..not a good guitarist, and not even good lyrics..all their songs suck. i just disliked them before..but now i really hate them. their music is sooo annoying.. specially she will be loved, which is constantly played in my house because my brother likes that crap…

  26. janine  |   Posted on Mar 15th, 2005 0

    scott stapp does a bad eddie vedder impression, sorry.

  27. Oh Thank God –
    I thought I was like the only person in the universe that cannot tolerate one more Maroon 5 song!!
    I liked that “Breathe” song for about, um, 5 minutes but then it got played the HELL out of – thanks again, crappy radio – and now it seems like they’re EVERYwhere.
    And what a little sissy boy like that got to beef about Scott Stapp for – let the man’s career die in peace!!

  28. Yes Maroon 5 sucks, but Creed maybe be the worst band in music history…they reach a whole new level of crap, marron 5 are just boring, bland and dont make my blood boil like creed.

  29. AL  |   Posted on Mar 15th, 2005 0

    Maroon 5 is the most annoying band in the world, they do suck, they’re not even camparable to a band like creed, at least their lyrics have some sort of meaning and they dont pound the same words in your head over and over. Creed has talent…and a good point and meaning in every song… maroon 5, has nothing.

  30. earwax  |   Posted on Mar 15th, 2005 0

    Point? There’s no point to Creed’s songs if you look beyond the drivitive religious crap. Also how can you even try looking for a point when one can’t get the past the fact that Scott owns a BIG apology to Eddie.

    And now as for Maroon 5, listen I’m not even going to respect a guy who dates Paris Hilton now and days and cries when she dumps you.

    I bet Adam fucking tried to win her over with the “She Will Be Loved” shit of a song.

  31. at the risk of being an insane fangirl that falls in love with every hot man on the face of the earth (hey, its REALLY not my fault, nerds are DAMN SEXY), I think Adam Levine’s voice is fucking gorgeous. I’ll admit the the band is way over exposed, but in their defense, they usually have absolutley nothing to do with the publicity. And, their good musicians. I love the album, but i went to one of their concerts a few days ago and they are even better performers. I have fangirls to support my case- (

  32. Lisa  |   Posted on Mar 19th, 2005 0

    I agree that maroon 5 is on the radio way too much, but besides that, I love them. I love the song This Love. I hate that there are so many people out there who just has something against a band just because they’re mainstream. So what if a lot of people listen to their music? That doesn’t necessarily mean they suck.

  33. sylvia  |   Posted on Mar 25th, 2005 0

    I like Maroon 5, especially Adam Levine.
    I can’t believe what you are all saying about Maroon 5, their songs are well written and performed.
    I wish the best of luck to Maroon 5.

  34. ____prettyxlush  |   Posted on Mar 27th, 2005 0

    i dont hate them because they are mainstream

    i hate them because they suck

  38. anavrin  |   Posted on Mar 31st, 2005 0

    i really do think creed was a great band! scott has a beautiful voice and their lyrics are really reallly great and at least mean something..! Maroon 5 keeps blabbbbing about the same girl in all songs, i mean, that’s just.. lame! :|
    adam should at least have respect for creed , stupid arrogant ass, in the beginning i liked him.. but now :|

  39. maroon 5 singer  |   Posted on May 9th, 2005 0

    maroon 5 is awesome. Maroon 5 sang frontin by Pharell live and it’s so much better. Shiver and That’s not enough and others are good too. Some are weird….

  40. Maroon 5 are the epitome of hack talent. They’d better be sending Billy Joel hefty royalty checks is all I know. Well at least Adam Levine seems to recognize how truly unimportant they are. *sighs* Well I guess I’ll just have to wait for the inevitable “Uptown Girl” cover to be followed up with an EMF-like avalanche of remixes and re-releases.

  41. Freddy  |   Posted on May 20th, 2005 0

    I find it amusing that everyone who has supported Maroon 5 are girls who have also commented on how good looking the members are. Does this band have any depth??

    Anyhow, Maroon 5 are shit because their songs are saccharine sweet shit with no substance. You want good pop? Listen to The Pixies or REM.

  42. Yaz  |   Posted on May 31st, 2005 0

    OMG, i cant belive some of these comments. What arrogant biatches you are, how could you people hate maroon 5?
    And Adam, he’s just the cutest thing out there.
    I’m appauled by some people who just hate maroon 5 just because they’re better than other bands.
    No, Adam’s carreer will NOT die in peace, he’ll be sucessful.
    Stay gorgeous Adam!!!
    P.S Creed? what the hell is that? whatever they are, i agree with Adam

  43. magneta lane  |   Posted on Jun 9th, 2005 0

    OK u guys it’s only a comment GOSH!!! if adam thinks creed sucks than that’s his opinion it’s nothing to get angry bout and besides everyone is entitled to their opinion .
    so i say let him say what he wants i’m all for free speech and besides i think maroon 5 is a good band and i respect them and their fans and i say the same for creed .

  44. Austin  |   Posted on Jul 31st, 2005 0

    Everyone who said that creed sucks needs to get slapped in the face. And what the hell do you mean “There’s no point to Creed’s songs if you look beyond the drivitive religious crap.” Are you retarted?!?!?! Half there songs arent even about religion. you people who said creed sucks need phychiatrist help.

  45. The Girl  |   Posted on Aug 8th, 2005 0

    wow you guys are so fucking stupid, maroon 5 is far more than Adam’s look, they’re fucking kick ass, and I’m not agreeing with Adam because I’m a maroon 5 fan, I’m agreeing with him because he’s right. Creed was a horrible band, end of story.

  46. who  |   Posted on Aug 23rd, 2005 0

    What I think this page proves is that everyone seems to imitate the comment before it. As far as bad as cancer…have you had cancer? that comment is a hell of a lot worse then adam’s comment. But i suppose there is nothing like taking a deathly disease and making light out of well is it that everyone hates them because they managed to get signed? Or is it due to the millions of dollars that they made singing those “stupid lyrics” in both cases, i give them credit for attempting to be artisitcally creative. the attempt was there, and apparently due to their publicity someone bought into it. and this site just proves that you have managed to assist in making them money because you buy into the advertising of them, i say both deserve credit due to the money they have that everyone wishes they could find a quick way to get.

  47. I love Maroon 5

  48. Jackie  |   Posted on Nov 10th, 2005 0

    Maroon 5 ROCKS! I agree with those who said this! Creed smells! :-)

  49. Lil' Dekka  |   Posted on Jan 1st, 2006 0

    Maroon 5 ROCKS! …and… I love Maroon 5!

    Finally! Some other people who are still fans – although I think what Adam said was wrong, I mean yeh Creed were SHIT but he shouldn’t say that stuff really. But his band still rule!

  50. Lil' Dekka  |   Posted on Jan 1st, 2006 0

    ‘Yaz’, Maroon 5 rox my sox and yes Adam is totally gorgeous!
