If "hate" is the right word - and words *do* mean something - then who are you to say? I HATE pretentious dreck and self-conscious baffoonery of Mr Bungle. And you don't. But no one said you were an idiot for liking it, did they? Are you an "an ignorant and fearful jackass" for having bad taste - afraid of not liking it for whatever reason? Who knows? It's all subjective.
