Pop Stars' Failed Beginnings
Maroon 5 -- known for hits like "She Will Be Loved" and "Moves Like Jagger" -- didn't start out in the music industry with that name. Before lead singer Adam Levine landed on The Voice and the band released four studio albums, the guys actually went by the name Kara's Flowers. The band's first gig was in 1995 and they later signed with Reprise Records. Unfortunately, the earnings from their 1997 album The Fourth World (selling about 5,000 copies) almost led them to break up.
