Metal though, I can understand if you do not like it. There are so many sub-genres of metal though, it seems like you could tolerate at least ONE type of metal.

Yeah, a portion of pop isn't horrible per say, I just find it incredibly boring. As a musician/music lover, I want really rich music. I want diversity and richness in melody, harmony, rhythm, structure, dynamics, texture, timbre, improvisation, etc. With pop music, all you get are the same, repeating "melodies", little to no harmony, stock rhythms, and, well, that's about it.
It's like comparing a kiddie coaster to Bizarro or Boulder Dash. Pop/metal is the plain, boring kiddie coaster (that can be somewhat enjoyable) and good Jazz, fusion, classical is the Bizarro and El Toro of roller coasters. I will add, there is plenty of good rock (classic, hard, prog), country, bluegrass, etc, but not the mainstream stuff.
