Thought by many extremist non-comformists who are only "non-comformists" because anti-conformity is popular in their middle school or high school.

Some people asserted their individuality, perhaps did some things that weren't quite normal, and everyone else who wanted attention started doing the same thing.

Seeing how they are doing the right thing for the wrong reason, they don't know how to discern popular things which suck from those which don't.

Some popular things are popular because they don't suck!

Not every popular thing is popular just because some exec at MTV or Mattel wanted to make some money by starting a fad.

The moral: ignore popularity when judging things. Neither like nor dislike solely based on popularity.
