2. Maroon 5 used to be called Kara's Flowers.
The four original members of the group, Adam Levine, Jesse Carmichael, Mickey Madden and Ryan Dusick were friend at school together when they came up with the band Kara's Flowers - a name of a girl the band all shared a crush on. The group changed their name to Maroon 5 around the same time they recruited guitarist James Valentine and the rest is history.
