Don’t you think there is a danger you are missing the point of pop music?
These songs are meant to cut through on a tinny AM radio- they are designed to be simple, immediate and memorable rather than to show off a load of complicated chord progressions. There are plenty of reasons of dislike some of them (most prominently over familiarity) but simplicity is not one of them.
If you reject music built on simple riffs and progressions with lots of repetition you are rejecting not just these songs but most of pop music, punk, disco, soul, funk - pretty much any music that’s fun - plus, as @Bamnan points out, a lot of more avant garde stuff as well.
Remember prog rock. It didn’t end well.
