Also with your lists most of bands are clean singers and the screamers you can understand what they are saying.
My favorite bands are Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Kiss, and Rush. All very mainstream. I don't hate mainstream rock bands because they're popular, I hate them cause they write boring, uninspired music. That's how I feel about all those bands that you're defending right now.
Also, for the record, harsh vocals get old quickly and I can't think of a single band with harsh vocals that I would consider one of my favorites. However, shit tons of respectable black and death metal bands > HellYeah and Disturbed.
