Within the style of music that you most often listen to, what's an opinion you have that most people who listen to that style don't?

For example, I listen to a lot of progressive rock and progressive metal, yet despite everyone's new found obsession with them, I can't stand The Contortionist.
My Old Progressive Metal Band:
Acrasia
For fans of Between The Buried and Me, Dream Theater, Cynic.

My New Progressive Rock/Djent Band:
Wings Denied
For fans of Deftones, Tesseract, Periphery, Karnivool, Cynic.

I hate Schubert. Schubert is untouchable in the circles of Classical music. You can dislike virtually any composer you want, but Schubert is an absolute no-go for whatever reason.

I like Metallica and Dream Theater

I'm going to be shot for saying that on this forum.

Also, A7X isn't quite as bad as everyone says it is.

I don't like Periphery, or I guess more specifically - I can't stand Misha Mansoor. The band's music dosen't really do a a whole lot to excite me, but there's just something about Misha specifically that I dislike more than the band as a whole.

I have no idea why, but mentioning that seems to upset people more than it really should.
I deeply regret the 6661 in my username. Siiiigh. Damn you, 14 year old me, you edgy little bastard.

*I don't think Ronnie James Dio's voice was anything spectacular [seriously it's only after he died that people started to worship the ground he walked on]
*I think Kirk Hammett is a great lead player [he's composed some of the coolest and most memorable rock & metal solos out there (e.g. one, ride the lightning, blackened, fade to black, the unforgiven, the shortest straw, wherever I may roam) ]
*I think the black album is one of metallica's best albums
*I find dream theatre's music repetitive and boring

Yeah, I never really got the hype on periphery either. They obviously are one of the better djent bands, but they're not exactly that genre's Converge.

I'll agree with the middle two, first one.. bit unfair, he was a great vocalist, just didn't have any good songs.

Last one, I dont like Dream Theater, but not for those reasons. I dont like them because it takes forever for their songs to sound good. Everything else is 70's bluesy-prog rock riffs up until the bridge, where they just pile on everything in one go.

I disagree. There's some metal that's pretty good, but the vocals always end up ruining it for me.

Probably because he died young, everyone who does that ends up untouchable. Why do you hate Schubert though? I can understand finding his music dull or whatever but hate is quite extreme

BTBAM is a group of extremely talented musicians who make extremely annoying, grating music.

While their adherence to the Loudness War is terrible, Coldplay themselves are not. Hell, parachutes is a great album.

Eric Clapton still sounds pretty good on a stratocaster.

I don't get the Nick Cave appeal, other than that he looks like Vince from Pulp Fiction.

Pop is actually a lot like metal in the sense that it's not as bad as a lot of people think, but most people generalize because of the handful of really bad examples that get strawman'd to death.

Yngwie is very capable of being a soulless wanker with no artistic value and pure technique. He's also very capable of creating enjoyable-yet-technical music with emotion.

Bruce Springsteen is a badass and a great lyricist.

Cm is actually sadder than Dm half the time.

Agreed with both, except for the last part I'd change it to "I'd rather hang out with an extremist fan of Bieber/Nickelback/Coldplay than an extremist fan of a metal band". A casual fan of anything is always tolerable.

I can understand people not liking the sounds he makes, but he's a good singer when he's actually trying (stuff from The Good Son, Boatmans Call, and most of Let Love In). I also think he's one of the best songwriters around (when Johnny Cash covers one of your songs, you know you're doing something right).

Also, that opinion isn't exactly unpopular. There's only like 4 people on here that I know of that are into Nick Cave.

Edit:

This would probably be decent for the people that are only used to the harsher stuff that Zoot always went on about.
