This or That: Maroon 5? Or Just Another Crappy Local Band?

Welcome to This or That, a new weekly segment here on DC9 where we'll stream an unmarked song and ask, simply enough, "Is this [POP BAND X] or just another crappy local band?" Why? Because we don't think you'll be able to tell the difference between the real thing and the crappy, cheap knockoff.

Los Angeles' Maroon 5 has been something of a pop radio force, for better or worse, for the past couple of years, thanks to semi-hard rock- and funk-influenced licks backing frontman Adam Levine's falsetto coo. It works largely because, well, the ladies love it. So, no surprise here, the band's inspired its fair share of knockoffs hoping to similarly make it big--even in our own backyard!

Which brings us to this week's song...



...and this week's question: Maroon 5 or just another crappy local band? And, if the latter, who is it? --Pete Freedman
