Nirvana pushed most hair metal away that shows how good they are also it's not like Kurt wanted to be famous he didn't hate fans but he didn't enjoy it as much as other bands he enjoyed most which he's amazing at making songs also it's funny seeing people say how do people live without them there annoying they give me headaches also have some dumb songs there overrated

Their first 3 albums were awesome! Why do people always judge them by Overexposed and V? - SammySpore
The people who listen to bands jump to conclusions. Honestly, I wouldn't listen to Taylor Swift's earlier work in thought of "Maybe it doesn't suck as much as her new work...". People have a tendency to forget the great things of the past, and I'm sorry you have to deal with it. But hey, just bask in the glory of your albums, and if anyone gives you crap about it- you don't need to care. The great thing is, these bands have so many people who like them, the people who hate them aren't really doing anything useful. - pandagirl
AH NO WHY WOULD THEY EVEN BE ON THE WORST BANDS LISTS? V AND OVEREXPOSED RULED! ILL NAME SOME GOOD SONGS BY MAROON 5: SUGAR, ANIMALS, MAPS, ONE MORE NIGHT, DAYLIGHT, AND LIKE 50 MORE! I'm LIVID!
Dude they rock so much that people hate them. Who can hate them
Every body should love Maroon 5 if they don't the are stupid dumb and super totally weird.
