Fair enough. I see what you mean but I really hate the mentality. That rather than find music that you really love and stick with it, you'd rather join that elitist mentality of "I need to listen to as many different bands and styles as possible". I'm not argueing against variety, but I'm not going to disobey what I naturally like so that I can listen to more things just for the sake of pointlessly "expanding my horizons".
