Torso-baring Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine, the man partly responsible for such diverse pop opi as ‘Harder To Breathe’ and ‘This Love’, doesn’t think much of people whose music tastes aren’t as all-encompassing as his own – quite obviously – are. In fact, he’d quite like to do violence to people whose tastes are limited solely to… say, lite guitar-pop floorfillers featuring Christina Aguilera.
Asked by The Sun if there would ever be bands as big as The Beatles or The Rolling Stones again, Levine said no, because: “Everything is too splintered now. There’s no [single dominant music] scene. At some point there’s going to have to be some scene that comes back. But I’m of the belief that, because our culture has changed so much, people don’t find that exclusivity very important any more, which I love because I hate it”.
He added: “People who tell me they only like one kind of music, I want to punch them in the face. It pisses me off so I’m glad those walls have been broken down”.
