Kara's Flowers: The Top 5 Most Desired Songs by the Foursome

Kara's Flowers performing in 1997.
Before the very successful and overexposed pop rock band today that is Maroon 5, singer Adam Levine, guitarist Jesse Carmichael, drummer Ryan Dusick, and bassist Michael "Mickey" Madden began a new wave group entitled to a special someone, Kara's Flowers, in which were independently and minorly successful for a short amount of time before the new century.

Kara's Flowers is related to Weezer in that Mykel and Carli Allan ran the Kara's Flowers Fanclub. Kara's Flowers also contributed the exclusive track "Yesterday When I Was Handsome" to the 1997 Vast Records album "Hear You Me! A Tribute To Mykel And Carli."

While attending Brentwood School, Adam Levine and Jesse Carmichael joined up with Mickey Madden and Ryan Dusick to form Kara's Flowers, and played their first gig at the Whisky a Go Go on September 16, 1995. When Valentine joined in 2001, the band adopted the name Maroon 5.

The band released one album as Kara's Flowers, 1997's "Fourth World," which was recently put back into print.
