Yeah you don't need to insult the fans. Not every listener fits into your stereotyping here, dude. While I agree that the majority is bland and uninteresting, some of them are relatively decent, and have some creative arrangements.

Occasionally the vocals agitate me, but otherwise the groove and melody is superb \m/
