Don't get so down on yourself, man. If you enjoy it, and you're not into it for chicks, a scene, a clique, or whatever, then you are entitled to listen to them without judgement. It might sound funny coming from me, and I'll admit I forget these words a lot, but it's true. We're in America (for the most part, sorry Brits/Aussies/etc) and that means freedom.
For music, I've been listening to Paul Gilbert, Death, Atheist, some jazz, and a bit of shoegaze. I'm not sure if you'd like it though. We could be more helpful if you told us what you would like to hear.
Honestly though, alot of it was from awhile ago, like Slipknot. Haven't listened to them in a long time. I just liked them when I was younger. It just kinda pisses me off that the charts don't nearly reflect what I like, especially since I change genres and styles and bands so quickly. But do I listen to it fit in or to get chicks and shit? Nah. My girlfriend hates my music, I mean, she listens to the generic pop/radio stuff, and like, one of my friends likes metal. :P
But right now, I've been into thrashy metal like A Textbook Tragedy, European progressive metal like Mnemic, and just some various metal,metalcore,deathmetal, etc as well as I just discovered Buckethead. I'm really looking for stuff the bridges the gap between death metal, thrash and progressive though, because I love how heavy death metal is, I love how complex and ingenious prog is, and I love just how crazy and intense thrash is.
