That's like saying that all country songs sound the same, and following that up by saying that the Ramones is your favorite band.
Essentially, you're the spoon, calling the kettle black on behalf of the pot.
No need to apologize. I welcome all opinions even if they can be construed as a mild insult or harsh.
I'm not quite sure what you're getting at though. I enjoy listening to Skrillex from time to time more than I would if I wasn't a drummer, because it is fun to play to, and it's fun to try and mimic some of the layered beats and rhythms.
Obviously songs from the same genre will sound 'the same' but I think pop music does more so than other genres, besides maybe death metal (I'm not into it at all but I do respect the genre for it's skill).
I'm not sure how the two are related, and how it makes me hypocritical, but maybe I missed the point you are making.
Maybe you mean, how can I say pop all sounds the same if I don't like it nor actively listen to it all the time?
Also, to others who have implied it, I'm not saying that people should focus all their energy on music to the extent of neglecting more important priorities in their lives.
