even though you dont like the "popular" music, you have to watch yourself so you dont become one of the people that are so devoted to a band/ a artist so you just follow them blanckly.
Metallica, for example, hvae made a lot of good songs, but st. anger did not at least follow their standards. but some fans still thinks its a great album just because its Metallica. watch out people!
p.s. I like Deep Purple, AC/DC, Nirvana, (some) Metallica, and being the only "new" band; Linkin Park
