I think the bigger issue is that taste in music is completely subjective. I don't enjoy the vast majority of popular music, but it's due entirely to the fact that I love weird music. I don't think this music I do not like is objectively bad, I would just rather listen to weirder music. I don't really understand why people bring up intelligence so often in these conversations either. It really bugs that people look down on people who don't have the same taste as them. It's just lame.
