See, I like them because I'm perfectly OK with J and K-pop to start with, the band are good, and the music runs through a pretty wide selection of styles - They've done from almost rammstein-sounding metal (Headbanger), through Dio-esque pomp ("Ijime, Dame, Zettai"), and they've even done K-hop/Hip-hop breaks just to screw with people's expectations (Iine!). It's all in good fun. You're right that on it's own I wouldn't rate them as "Greatest band ever" or anything, but I wouldn't say that about Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin or Up Up Down Down Left Right Left Right B A Start either, and I like those bands just fine too. But, like I said above, a lot of why I fully enjoy Babymetal's existence is because of how *angry* they make a group of people who have no legitimate grievance except for the fact the band makes them feel less special and superior for being metalheads. Even if half their value to me is in the fact they're trolling the crap out of these people just by existing, that's a hell of a lot of value-added, as far as I'm concerned, because those people are *awful*, and do more to kill the metal scene than they do to retain it's integrity.
