Stuff you like now because of nostalgia

I realized a few days ago that there are albums I appreciate more now because of nostalgia; the act of embracing something because you knew it for a long time and you even kind of miss hearing more stuff like that. Yet I know there has been a time when I was annoyed by stuff like Neutral Milk Hotel but then eventually realizing they have 2 really good albums and the style is kind of quaint to hear nowadays in comparison to how everything is overproduced nowadays (We're trying to be the 1980s part 2).
Then there is stuff like The Offspring and other pop punk bands like Blink 182 that seemed cheesy at the time but is also quaint and just catchy and fun now with the prospect of time and people caring less about what is "cool".
In fact if people try to tell you what is cool, that person is considered a bully and a complete piece of crap jerk in these social media times.
Nickelback doesn't even annoy me as much anymore. Its bad but it has a hook at least - although Creed is still horrible.
