Billy Joel is one of the few people in the world to know the reason American rockers MAROON 5 chose their name.

The SHE WILL BE LOVED stars, who used to perform as KARA'S FLOWERS, have kept the origin of their band name a closely guarded secret - but they couldn't hide the truth from the UPTOWN GIRL singer.

Singer ADAM LEVINE says, "He asked me where the name came from, and you can't really tell Billy Joel 'no'. I told him I was only going to tell him because he was Billy Joel. So he's the only other person who knows."

To the dismay of his bandmates, guitarist James Valentine lets slip, "Actually, I told my mom."
