No, I'm saying why do you care if people like laughable ersatz grunge?
The desire to laugh and point at people who like "bad" songs or movies or whatever is far more WTF to me than someone actually liking "bad" songs or movies or whatever.
There's tons of popular stuff I think is crap, but I don't mock people who like it. I just shrug and let them like whatever the **** they want to like.
Edit: So no, I'm not saying that people should recognize the quality of NB. I agree, they aren't very good. But I don't look down on people for liking them.
I guess if you want to look down on someone for liking NB then that's your call. I look down on people who look down on people for liking X, so that way we all get to feel superior.
