A High School Band Gone Global: Maroon 5

maroon 5

Since their 2002 debut, Maroon 5 has sold over 10 million albums in the US, 15 million worldwide, and they've won three Grammys. It might have never happened if the band stopped after their early incarnation wasn't well received. Instead, they persisted -- and it paid off.

The band didn't always go by the name Maroon 5. While in high school, Adam Levine, Jesse Carmichael, Mickey Madden, and Ryan Dusick formed a group called Kara's Flowers. They signed to a record label, but unfortunately, their first album fell flat and the group disbanded. Levine and Carmichael headed to college in New York, where they were introduced to gospel, hip-hop and R&B. With new inspiration, they reformed their band with a new name: Maroon 5.

The newly formed Maroon 5 released their debut album, "Songs About Jane" in 2002. It proved to be a sleeper hit -- the album landed in the Billboard Top Ten a full two years later. They won the Best New Artist Grammy in 2004, then hit the road after that. The extensive touring was too much for Ryan Dusick, who left the band and was replaced by Matt Flynn. Maroon 5 then won two additional Grammys in 2005 and 2007, and have proven themselves to be a force in the music industry.

Maroon 5 followed up their debut album with "It Won't Soon Be Long" in 2007, and they've just released their latest album, "Hands All Over." They stopped by to perform their single, "Misery" -- check it out right here.
