Right now I'm just discovering a guy who calls himself Buck 65. He's great. Its what Tom Waits would sound like if he were into hip hop.
Whatever sounds good, really. Right now I'm big into Ringside, and I've been busting out a lot of my old White Zombie stuff. Also, I've developed a taste for country music lately, but not a whole lot of the new pop-y stuff. I like Gary Allen a lot, and Garth Brooks has made a lot of classic music.
Indie Rock for the most most part. Here are some of my heavy rotation plays of late:
British Sea Power
Band of Horses
Black Box Recorder
When LAMP is in the office it's mostly old classics so lots of...
Rod Stewart (only the 70s stuff)
I listen to everything from Barroque to Norwegian Death Metal. Passing through world folkloric music, classic rock, jazz, blues, etc. Maybe tilting a bit torwards Acid and Contemporary Jazz, Power and Symphonic Metal and early romanticism academic music... mmm, lately, however, I've been listening to a lot of Irish drinking songs.
I do avoid listening to bubblegum pop and certain subgenres of electronica, though.

Led Zeppelin. The kings of rock and roll. Robert Plant is the only guy who's hair is as good as LAMP's. I'm into classic rock. Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, The Who, Black Sabbath, Van Halen(damn Sammy Hagar). The kings. Especially the good rockers in Zep.
So funny, I was gonna start a thread like this today but have been away from my computer. I like Foo Fighters, The Beatles, Smoking Popes, Green Day, Red Hot Chilipeppers, The Doors, Muse, Weezer, Jimi Hendrix, Motley Crue, The Good the Bad and the Queen, Barenaked Ladies, Death Cab For Cutie, Alkaline Trio, Nine Inch Nails, Rock Kills Kid, and many more.
I like yodelling and marching bands. Anything with bagpipes.
Kidding. I generally like anything with guitars from emo stuff like Dashboard Confessional to heavier stuff like Foo Fighters. U2 are probably one of my favourites also REM, Remy Zero, the Killers, Blink 182, Green Day etc. I am occassionally mocked for liking the Polyphonic Spree (especially as I otherwise hate hippies) but darn it if there songs don't make me happy.
One of the places I used to work overlooked our local Woolworths. Most Saturdays and during the week in school holidays, a bagpiper would stand and busk outside. The only way to drown him out would be to turn the radio up to deafening (which the boss didn't appreciate). After several hours of it, over and over, you really learn to loathe it and our strict gun control laws.
Of course, anyone who has worked in a shop over Christmas gets the same joy with Christmas music. I used to work in an opticians that was joined to (but technically seperate from) a chemist. December is completely dead in an opticians but insanely busy for the chemist. So for the entire month, we all stood around bored (we couldn't relax because customers were coming through) with the same cd over and over.
I saw Red Hot Chilipeppers last August. It was quite the show. They'll be on the Grammys tonight doing Snow (Hey Oh). I'll probably dvr it and fast forward through aaaaaaall the boring parts and performances. Pretty cool that the Police will be playing.
"When I was a wee boy the Chili Peppers were an ultra cool funk band, now they sing lullabies. I would sell my eyes for a new Chili Peppers album on par with Blood Sugar Sex Magic or Uplift Mofo Party Plan."
Yeah, but changes happen... some people haven't taken happily to that, but they can't play funk/punk forever.
OMGz Last.fm users unite!
EVIL music!!! I mean, uh, evil cheesy music. Just about any "hair band" from the 80s (Poison, Ratt, Twisted Sister, Warrant, Winger). Few of my favs are Iron Maiden, Queensryche and lately the newest Europe album (yes they're still together and sound better than ever).
I also go all over the place such as: Pink Floyd, Journey, Matthew Sweet, Dave Matthews Band, Counting Crows, Black Crows, Ben Fold Five, Survivor, Jill Sobule, XTC, Styx, Blink 182, etc.)
88 Fingers Louie
Me First & The Gimme Gimmes
Earth Wind & Fire
Tribe Called Quest
That sums up the big ones
