I typically don’t do pop music. Why, you ask? Because it’s the same regurgitated chord progressions and lyrics song after song, album after album, for basically every pop artist. If you hand me a Nicki Minaj CD I will break it in front of your face and light it on fire. Fair warning.

But not all pop acts are garbage. In fact, every now and then you stumble onto one that has some musical ability and a signature style. One of those groups just so happens to be Maroon 5 – the musical power squad with every woman’s favorite boy toy – Adam Levine – at the helm.I give this band a free pass to play flamboyant love songs. They’re just too funky not to like.

If you’re in the same boat as myself and enjoy these guys, you should be pretty excited that they’re officially headlining the Super Bowl Halftime Show this year. Although it's not exactly the rowdy, aggressive type of music you might expect to be played at a sporting event, it should still be fun to watch (fingers crossed for Van Halen next year.)
