This is kind of what I've been saying. I don't begrudge anyone for disliking 'pop' or dance music or whatever, I begrudge them for disliking it for the wrong reasons. I've been trying to instill some perspective, but it's largely falling on deaf ears. I'm not stuck in the '60s or '70s, or stuck in a genre... I'm stuck in music. It's all just music, period. Some good, some bad, some simple, some complex, some real bands, some lone producers with a keyboard, serious lyrics, and silly lyrics. I don't quite understand how someone can make their listening decisions based strictly on genre, or on which parts are real or synthesized. Every song deserves to be liked or disliked on its own merits, or lack of.

It's no different than saying "I got one of those Forum kits and they're terrible! All Pearl drums suck, and I'll never play a Pearl drum again!" It doesn't actually matter whether Pearl drums suck or not - it's the reasoning that's faulty.
