Well the majority of the people like "pop" or popular music, and makes you the minority.
But it's so easy to play in time especailly when your occupation is to play drums! You'd have so much time and equipment with all his money to make it so easy to play everything he does perfect. Metal drummers like Chris Adler, Mike Smith, Joey Jordison have very 'fitting' beats and can play everything in synchronisation with the entire band like Tre does, but metal is much harder and strenuous compared to pop music. The band is so ridiculous, and so is pop/chart music.
