Bands I don’t get

I was looking at acclaimed bands from this website, whom I just can’t get any, or little enjoyment out of. Maybe you can help me see the light. These were just on top of my head. Might add some more.
Nothing Left to Love

Honestly, every song sounds the same. Couldn’t finish their album Nothing Left to Love because of the “repetition”. The lyrics are depressing as fuck, which I actually don’t mind, and the vocals are also really hard hitting. Cleary Brendan has some talent. I really enjoy his other band called END with Will Putney and a whole heap load of other well-known musicians.
You Won't Get What You Want

This band just make me uncomfortable. I know that’s on purpose, but I don’t see the point in listening to this type of music. Also, I’ve seen a live performance of them from a few years back when they still were a mathcore/grindcore band, where the frontman, Alexis Marshall, performed with his pants down and con-tinually tried to wrap his dick around the mic stand, which didn’t help their reputation in my eyes. I mean, Alexis generally seems like an awful human being, so maybe not liking them is the right move.
Full Collapse

With this band, I can break it down to pretty much one thing. Geoff Rickly. I really don’t like his voice, which is a shame considering there some real bangers on Full Collapse. It gives me pop punk vibes and that’s a genre I’ve grown out of ten years ago. Honestly, I’ve nothing against him, but he also ruined a song on the album This World Is going to Ruin You. It was just at complete odds with the rest of the song/album. Granted, it isn’t just his fault.

This one is a little bit different. I remember hearing the song This Could Be Anywhere in the World and being instantly hooked. But then time past and I forgot about it only to rediscover it years later, and me being older and more invested in music, took a deep dive in their discography. What I realised was, that half the bands music is pretty boring. I really like the songs with proper aggression and speed. The others, not so much. Their new album also didn’t change my opinion, if not the opposite.
5Misery Signals
Of Malice and the Magnum Heart

I normally really enjoy Metalcore. Poison the Well being one example of a band who operates in a similar vein as Misery Signals. But while I like Poison the Well quite a lot, I don’t find myself liking Misery Signals. Just a little bit to stale and repetitive for me. Mind you, I've only listened to Of Malice and the Magnum Heart and Controller.
6Trophy Scars
Darkness, Oh Hell

Going into a completely different direction. This stuff is just way to out there. I mean, it’s commendable that they have such a unique sound, but I’m not a fan of the blues influences and the general experimentation.
