“I’m With You” was the third single from Let Go, and the ballad marked a different sound for Avril, who had been known for the bouncier pop-punk of previous hits “Complicated” and “Sk8er Boi.”
Adam went on to say he wishes bands were still prevalent on the mainstream charts the way they were when Maroon 5 was releasing such signature songs as “Harder to Breathe” and “This Love.”
“It’s funny, when the first Maroon 5 album came out, there were still other bands,” he said. “I feel like there aren’t any bands anymore, you know? That’s the thing that makes me kind of sad, is that there were just bands. There’s no bands anymore, and I feel like they’re a dying breed.”
Indeed, to paraphrase an early Maroon 5 tune, it really makes you wonder what happened to music with guitars in it.
