While talking to Apple Music’s Zane Lowe, Levine revealed his thoughts about the modern-day music industry. In particular, what concerned Levine the most was the current state of bands. He said:

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. There’s no bands anymore, and I feel like they’re a dying breed.

Now, Levine did concede that there are some great bands right now in the industry. However, the problem is none of them are as mainstream as Maroon 5 is. He said:

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.

The internet’s reaction: not happy

As soon as Twitter got a hold of Adam Levine’s comments, there was somewhat of a meltdown with loads of viral tweets. Many users highlighted the fact that it was hypocritical of Levine to say so because he was the frontman of a very popular band himself. But, other users said that maybe it’s because Adam Levine doesn’t consider Maroon 5 a band but more like a one-man-show. They think Maroon 5 is just a bunch of back-up musicians for Levine. And some of the tweets were brutal:

And then, there were fans who wanted to highlight the amazing music their favorite bands made which somehow Adam Levine just ignored.

Finally, even the bands themselves were hurt by what Adam Levine said. Garbage and Eve6 both tweeted from their official accounts, making the situation all the more hilarious. They were like, “am I a joke to you?”:

The funniest one has to be Eve6 calling Adam Levine a nerd. The singer hasn’t responded to the criticism as of yet. But what do you guys think? Let us know in the comments below.
