Music Tastes on the Internet

I am fed up with weeaboo music.
It gets annoying that on every anime forum I go to, most people only listen to Korean and Japanese music, or other East Asian music. The few who don't listen to Daft Punk, and that's about it. I'm not that kind of person. I don't listen to Kpop or Jpop - I mean, I like anime, but I don't have to prefer everything Asian over everything western. And I HATE Daft Punk - their music is overrated beyond belief.
Plus no one here brings up any good singers from English-speaking countries - just ones who are widely hated (like Justin Bieber) or music that's not even from my generation, like The Beatles or The Rolling Stones. The rock bands they might mention are ones I've never heard of because I don't follow rock (considering most of it's been replaced by rap and hip-hop - which is even worse - it's understandable). I prefer pop, but trying to discuss pop with most straight guys outside of my circle of friends (practically none of whom use forums) is a real challenge, especially considering many guys won't even listen to anything by female singers (not all female singers are pop; there are female rock singers and female rappers. Unfortunately, female rock singers seem to be a thing of the past these days - now it's all white guys with dark hair, tattoos, and Abercrombie & Fitch). People even assumed I was gay for liking pop. And at least I don't get carried away like one Beyonce fan who wore her name on his bum. (Rihanna posted that pic.)
I prefer listening to music in a language I can understand. It's hard to sing along in a language that you don't speak. I can speak English, Arabic, and some French, but I can't speak Japanese or Korean. (I admit, I do watch anime in Japanese sometimes, but at least I can see what's going on.)
