So yeah, I'm sure this happens to a lot of people. There is some band that you shouldn't like. There is something wrong with it. You might even think that it's bad . . . But you love it! You nod along to the music and can't help but sing along if you know the lyrics. You love it, and you hate the fact that you love it. So yeah, does this happen to anyone else, and if so, with what bands?

For me, the most obvious one is Rhapsody. They are really really cheesy, and all of their songs sound more or less the same to me. I feel it is all charged with vacuous optimism, and the lyrics are terrible. But yes, I like them. Please don't tell anyone.

Also, I like Bal Sagoth. They are pretty much the cheesiest band on earth, and it is precisely the cheesiness that makes me love them so. The "dark" vocals are anything but creepy and all of the "symphonics" sound fake. It's so bad that it's good!

There are some Emperor songs that I like. I have moral issues with liking Emperor. The black metal act is sometimes interesting, and often funny as hell. I approve of it . . . but only so long as it is an act. Church burning is not cool. Neither is killing people.

I am ashamed of nothing I listen to, since that would mean I am ashamed of myself.
There are some stuff I listen to that the majority of metalheads look down upon, like Atreyu, Avenged Sevenfold (even though I am not a fan of neither metalcore, nor nu metal), post-ETD Dimmu Borgir, early Cradle of Filth (I dont like their newer stuff though, but Principle... is awesome) Slaughter of the Soul-era At the Gates (which once again proves how ridiculous this 'tr00 kvltism' is, since that album is so divided even amongst metalheads, AtG purists hate it, generic Gothenburg fans love it, I personally find nothing wrong with it, but The Red in the Sky is Ours is clearly the band's best work).

I also listen to quite a lot of Drum n Base and Electronica.

Agreed. Why be ashamed of liking certain music? It raises the question of the individual's taste being based off of quality vs the resulting social status/appearance...

None. There are some things I listen to just for the sake of laughing at it, but I'm not ashamed of that.

I'd love to say that I don't give a shit what people think, but I hate enjoying all (or many of) the popular metal bands like Disturbed, A7X, Atreyu- it's just what introduced me to metal as a younger kid and I've always liked it since haha

Same here... I'm not really ashamed, I'm just totally pissed off by people who accuse me of being a poser just because I like them. I'm glad I'm not the only one listening Slipknot here

Strike from behind and knock me to the ground

Stab me in the back, you bastards
Tear my heart out of my chest!

You weren't reffering to Slipknot when you said that, were you? Because that would totally contradict the laws of metal... Anyway, I'm glad I'm not the only one listening Slipknot here

Of course I'm not reffering to Slipknot as a grunge band

Why would anyone be ashamed of crunkcore? It is an absolute cornerstone of modern society. It is a channel for the deepest and most thought provoking lyrics, such as "Let's get freaky now, let's get fucking freaky now".

Without crunkcore, I could safely say, I wouldn't even have a purpose in live...

Scar Symmetry's first couple of albums. Dunno why (especially as I feel no shame in liking a bunch of nu-metal bands), perhaps the shameful melodies and hooks just aren't what I'm used to but revisiting the debut in a quasi-intoxicated state reveals a pleasant strain of nostalgia.

Thanks, that being said: I absolutely hate their appearance, the way they act in live shows I've seen in internet, their interviews, I pretty much dislike them as persons completely yet somehow I dig their music.
