A lot of metal is shit. I would even say that the majority is. Even so, a lot of it is really great.

You can't say a lot of a genre is shit because it doesn't make sense and is way too harsh anyway.
Perhaps you're right. I used to be incredibly opinionated. Then for a while, I existed far more under a "to each, their own" kind of mindset. That might be wearing off a bit, now. Even so, I do have a distaste for the majority of musical artists, just as I do for the majority of just about anything. I feel as though most of what groups and corporations release lack artistic merit and is only released to appeal to the general public (which has a very different set of ideals than myself, so we tend to disagree on most topics)
Technically, I can say whatever I wish though (and I tend to state whatever I believe)
In my personal opinion, I feel as though the majority of mainstream media lacks quality. That fact also exists under less mainstream outlets (a lot of indie media is no better)
When it comes down to it though, very few people like everything. I tend to like at least a little bit of everything, but for every musician I come across that I love, I find five others that I'm not so crazy about.
