What do you mean "it doesn't fit your personality"? Music taste shouldn't define a person, i have few metalhead friends that don't adhere to the stereotype of a a bit thick, beer swilling rednecks. I with in a kitchen but I've got mates who work in magazine publishing, libraries and many dress in non-stereotypical clothing. I'm currently wearing all black but it's standard jeans and a plain jumper, i could pass for a Jazz fan as much as a metalhead.

And? When i was 8 i loved Gary Glitter and relished in 70s glam and rock bands until i discovered Iron Maiden at 17 in 2003. It's not lame to be unlike other people, the only lame people are those that can't accept you're a bit different.

I still listen to glam bands though, my favourite it's Sweet but you'll also find me listening to Cradle of Filth and Chuck Berry too.

Sounds like you are letting outside influences (either in person or on the interwebs) dictate what you think is good. This seems evident by your use of the term “boomer rock”.

I have a wide range of musical tastes, including plenty of classic rock. I never worry about what others think and listen to what I like.

All of that being said, considering you used to dig metal, maybe try some modern prog/prog-metal to see if any of it hits you. Check out bands like Tesseract, Voices From The Fuselage, Thank You Scientist, Protest The Hero, Porcupine Tree, The Contortionist, etc.
