"Guilty Pleasures" really?

I don't have guilty pleasures. Evansecense, Disturbed, Skillet, CoB, Hollywood Undead, Eminem, just don't cut it anymore. Heres a few more thoughts.
1 Evanescence

I started off like most people, listening to whatever became musically avalible to me. Teenage years are interesting. Well now I've developed a further appreciation for music so, logically I won't just listen to CoB, Skillet...
2 Disturbed

Music is not a dick measuring contest. Am I too "cool" to listen to Disturbed? No But I have reasons for not liking them anymore. Here's one, the guitar, drums, vocals, lyrics are uninteresting. After listening to 1000s of albums, Disturbed sinks into mediocracy.
3Children of Bodom

For me music is about riding different levels of energy. I know that sounds odd, but what I find is that previous albums like Hatebreeder is that it has no artistic restraint. Green Day, Trapt, Disturbed, The Black Dalia Murder all have this issue. Teenage "mentality" music dull. Period. Sure Alexi Laiho is a somewhat talented guitarrist, but knowing how to play guitar and playing it well are two different things.

Ask Yourself a simple question, why do you listen to music? To dance, easy listening in the car, to workout, to sleep... Once you know your answer, you'll know how much you want to explore music. Music only gives what is given. Think Fredrick Nietzche.

There are no guilty pleasures, just things I enjoy listening to more than others. I do like some material that I had on my Ipod previously but my taste has changed so much that I no longer am captivated by Evanescence "beautiful voice," CoB "Amazing Technicality," or Disturbed's "Anger Driven" messages
