I know some examples of that personally or even just from this site.
well, since I sense it, erm, somehow includes myself..
yes, I think that majority of recent pop music is pure crap - mind you, it wasn't always like that, even early 00s brought some great pop
my opinion: pop songwriters got lazy, copy their own songs or songs they heard somewhere else, their lyrics are beyond bad, feel like they're generated by a computer programme and don't induct any personality or emotion, despite people's ability to somehow see depth in them.
a lot of rock music is crap too - indie turned into just a bonus to pop music, something for pop fans to feel like they listen to something more "serious" too. Scouring For Girls? Kooks? Nickelback? pop music
and yes, there is such thing as a bad taste
