The reason you don't like Beggar's Banquet is simple. You have no appreciation of history. Beggar's Banquet is an absolutely amazing feat. The Stones were coming off two albums considered by many to be in a class as your beloved B2B. Then they put out Beggar's Banquet, a very primal roots music album. How can you not marvel at the beauty of the layers of acoustic guitars on Street Fighting Man, or Jagger's attitude that country music should be funny, while Keith gets the band to musically honor every pre-fifties country artist musically with Dear Doctor? You are nineteen years old, and you don't understand simple concepts like the pleasure of waiting for a girl to get off of work while you're standing in the rain. Beggar's Banquet is an old album, with old lyrical and musical ideas, but it was made by young men that GOT IT.
You just don't get it. Go be a U2 fan. Either that or understand where things come from before you open your young, stoopid mouth. You are ignorant.
