* EarWorm: "This Love" for a start.
** "I'm at a payphone, trying to call home, all of my change I spent on you." Seriously that chorus shall be stuck in your head forever.
** ''Songs About Jane'' in general.
** "She Will Be Loved". Damn it...
** "This! Love! Has! Taken its toll. On me!"
** "That may be ALLLLL I need, in darkness she is ALLLLL I see. . ."
** "Misery"
** "Moves Like Jagger" is ''the'' ear worm.
** "And when the DAYLIIIIGHT comes I'll have to GO, but tonIIIIGHT I'm gonna hold you SO CLOSE!"
** "One More Night". Just..."One More Night".
** "I really wanna love somebody! I really wanna dance the night away!"
** "Lucky Strike"
** "Never Gonna Leave This Bed"
** "It's not over tonight, just give me one more chance to make it right!"
** '''''Overexposed'''''. The whole album. Along with the songs mentioned above, some lesser known ones like "Tickets" and "Doin' Dirt" are also extremely catchy.
** "I was the man who never lied, never lied until today, but I just couldn't break your heart, like you did mine yesterday"
** "Sugar! Yes, please! Won't you come and pour it down on me?"


* NeverLiveItDown: The band's UsefulNotes/SuperBowl LIII halftime show performance was widely panned as being one of the blandest and most forgettable halftime shows in Super Bowl history. And that's ignoring all the heat the band got well before the show for even being willing to perform in it, but that's for [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment more complex and controversial reasons]].

** Just in general, most fans seem pretty torn on whether the newer material they're churning out is any good in the first place, or is just bad, meaningless schlock. [[https://youtu.be/rV8NHsmVMPE A majority of people commenting on 'Harder to Breathe's' music video]] on Website/YouTube alone has many fans decrying their newer music, in favor of their older stuff. You'll find this on many videos for their songs.

Neither had new music to promote and Pink had just gotten off a highly successful tour. Various others turned down the chance to cameo as well. Particularly Music/CardiB who was featured on a song of theirs that had been in the top ten for quite some time at that point. They were basically the only act that would say “yes”.

* SugarWiki/FunnyMoments: "Don't Wanna Know" has a ConceptVideo parodying VideoGame/PokemonGo (and possibly also the beginning of ''Film/AHardDaysNight''), with the band (and various celebrity {{cameo}}s) dressed in cumbersome {{mon}} costumes while being chased down the street by people holding up smartphones. There's also a MidVidSkit where the director asks Adam Levine to put on a Pharrell Williams-esque NiceHat and Levine refuses because it would make him look "silly"... [[HypocriticalHumor he says this as he's still dressed as a Squirtle lookalike]].

* AwardSnub: Maroon 5 have yet to win a Kids' Choice Award. Although to be honest, they never really stood a chance against One Direction. Fans hope that they will finally be honored once the Favorite Music Group category is 1D-free (unlike Bruno Mars who continues to get snubbed in the post-Bieber Favorite Male Singer categories). That is, unless something like 5 Seconds of Summer or Fifth Harmony starts to dominate. Unfortunately, 1D was nominated again in 2016 despite their hiatus.

Added DiffLines:

** "Sugar! Yes, please! Won't you come and pour it down on me?"


Added DiffLines:

** The music video for "Sugar" is the band surprising a bunch of wedding couples by playing the song. While there is some question of how genuine the actual wedding "crashes"/"surprises" were, the brides were ''all'' genuine reactions. Even more, Maroon 5 then voluntarily played "She Will Be Loved" as the traditional first dance for all the couples afterwards.
