I think it's time we faced the truth about failed metal. Some music just sucks. Some music is just great. This whimpy fru-fru airy silliness about "it's just my opinion" is just people freaking out when they realize other people can figure out they listen to doofus music.
Indeed, I've found this especially difficult to talk to people about because for them, it's a touchy subject. If you explain what art in music is, they freak out and tell you you're wrong, go into a vicious babbling fit about how it's only my opinion, and so on and so forth. It's because it jeopardizes something in their lifestyle that they don't want to give up because it's one of the few things that makes their life a little less shitty and takes them further and further away from accomplishing anything that might take effort to achieve. Especially in a Hessian's sort of case, if you explain to someone how dumb TV is, they'll call you a moron and say you think you know everything, blah blah blah. I've actually been dealing with a LOT of this as of recent.
