Do you think "no matter what" "no matter which" "no matter when" etc. are archaic or pompous that you should avoid using?

    He's always crying whatever I do.

    They are the same to me in this context.

    "No matter what" is the title of a song by Boyzone.

    So the expression is certainly not archaic or pompous.
