Musical guilty pleasures

Everyone has their preferences in artists/bands and genres (personally i prefer melodic prog metal, as well as other sub-genres of metal), as well as genres and artists they HATE

but some of us, me included, have those few guilty pleasures we hate to enjoy. the "windows up, volume down" kind of songs or bands

so people, if you can think of any, what are your musical guilty pleasures?

Edit: no talking shit, in-depth questioning (asking what they like about theirs is acceptable, but nothing more), and NO FIGHTING. arguments will be ended swiftly

If I like a band I'll listen to them and not really care what anybody else thinks.

I can't really think of anything I listen to that could be considered a guilty pleasure.

Even I could, why would I tell anybody?

I actually kinda like some of Avenged Sevenfold's songs.
And a couple of Trivium's.

Even for guilty pleasures, that's pretty guilty.

i happen to think Avenged Sevenfold is alright. it seems like everyone who is really vocal about how much they suck is mistaking them for a full-on metal band.

Vengaboys and other various cheesy 90s europop. And anything Eurovision, but everyone that knows me knows I love stuff like that so I wouldn't describe it as something to feel guilty about.

Ariana Grande. Seriously. She's got a friggin' crazy range, unseen since Mariah Carey's heyday, and lots of enticing vocal melodies. On top of that, she often has pretty well produced songs with great beats; brings me back to that mid-late 90s R&B sound. Sure, her lyrics are pretty shallow and full of clichés, but I can get past that.

I hate her image, but if you disassociate her music with the image, she's actually got good tunes.
And she can sing well live (I've not been to a concert, but youtube and stuff...)

And yeah, I judge myself too, don't worry.
