I love all kinds of music. I really appreciate the good stuff but I think the popular stuff has a place too and like a lot of it. I just want music to speak to me no matter what it is.
I don't think either are particularly bad, just at a loss to find them passion inducing. In both situations there were broad swaths of music I found vastly superior at that time [was a huge AC/DC, Nazareth, Sabbath, Metallica fan around the HS GF, and a huge Nirvana, GnR, NWA, Beastie Boys fan with the College GF].
