I am speaking of bands such as Nickelback, Coldplay, Oasis, Green Day, Tokio Hotel, Deicide, Fall Out Boy, Panic At The Disco, Linkin Park, Korn, Slipknot, Staind, Credd, Limp Bizkit....

Now it definitely isn't the music, which would be the obvious answer in a sane world, as all of these bands have very different sounds...

whilst some bands, such as Strapping Young Lad, Between The Buried And Me, Alice In Chains, Megadeth, Porcupine Tree, Opeth, Dream Theater, Eric Clapton, etc, are unconditionally loved by most of the guitar-playing community?

I guess to tl;dr....what creates a reputation for integrity?
