You know something? I LIKE Maroon 5, dammit!

I really, really do.

They're great live. They incorporate cool funk sounds into a lot of their songs. Adam Levine really has a unique voice. I don't care that they made what is either a really great/terrible/creepy video for "She Will Be Loved." I don't care that Adam thinks he is God's gift to women, I don't care that every frat guy probably has a copy of Songs about Jane...whatever. I like them.

Let the flaming begin!

I don't have a problem. I don't like them myself, but I'm not gonna flame you. You know what? I like a lot of music that, to be honest, is not technically, lyrically, or innovatively impressive. Nevertheless, if I enjoy a tune, I'm not gonna lie about it. You know what? Matchbox twenty make boring middle of the road stuff that I should hate. But I enjoy it nevertheless. It's not necessarily as satisfying as Radiohead or U2, but I still enjoy it. And I don't think there's anything wrong with that. I'm not gonna go and argue that they're a great band; they're not. But I don't have to be challenged by music to enjoy it. It's just a different type of appreciation.

I knew you'd come in and wreck our shameless pandering of "lesser" music with your perplexed smilies. It's OK, Deathbear, abuse me.

If it makes you feel any better, I like Good Charlotte.

I saw them in concert over the summer and they were really, really great! Very sweet to the crowd, and played a nice long set even though they were technically the openers. Adam's voice holds up nicely live, too, which is more than I can say for a lot of so-called big deals in the music industry today.

I have a lot of quirks in my music taste - people assumed me to be a one track indie kid (which I wasn't happy being labelled as), but when they found out I liked U2, that went straight out of the window. Having variety in things like this is what makes people unique.

Ugh ... we all have those "musical oddballs" that we like.

I will admit it ... I bought the Maroon 5 album. It's not something I will freely admit too, but it's one of those musical quirks in my collection.
