Right now I am into The Weakerthans in a pretty huge way, I got to see them live twice in the last month or so and they are really incredible.  I got to see Anamanaguchi a month ago as well, which was pretty badass.  I would say that I'm generally into rock, but I've found rap, country, r&b, classical, jazz, blues, pretty much any genre has some really talented people that are great to listen to.  Some of my favorite all-time rock bands are:

A
The Pillows
The Weakerthans
Thunderbirds Are Now! (rolling stone top 40 under my friend Howard's mgmt!)
Portastatic/Superchunk
At The Drive In/The Mars Volta
Ted Leo & The Pharmacists

I also (surprise!) listen to a LOT of chiptunes.  Kohina and Nectarine radio and some 2 or 3 GB of game soundtracks from the last 20 years or so provide the bulk of this...fav game soundtracks:

Streets of Rage 2
Rocket Knight Adventures
Batman (NES)
Journey To Silius
Chrono-Trigger
Castlevania 4
Secret of Mana
Vortex
Megaman X
Shatterhand
Heavy Barrel
Life Force
Castlevania 3

Modern game soundtracks that I enjoy:

Katamari Damacy
Quake 2
Prince of Persia
Dynasty Warriors
Einhander
Hitman Blood Money
UT2004
Symphony of the Night
Warhawk
Wipeout 2097/XL
Silent Hill 2
Contra: Shattered Soldier
Command & Conquer: Generals

Not to mention chiptune albums like FX3, Out There, Pioneer, Power Supply, etc etc...

My list (in no real order). I'm keeping it at the top 5 most recognizable, because I dont' think anyone will bother to read more than that.

Death Cab for Cutie
mewithoutYou
Copeland
Anberlin
Eisley

And a whoooole bunch of other bands that probably no one has ever heard of.

99% of the time I listen to "the pillows".
Then when I'm not, I either listen to videogame music/orchestrated videogame music (esp. the Mario & Zelda Big Band Live) or to the Smashing Pumpkins.

I listen to a lot of stuff. If it sounds good I'll listen to it, but I'm partial to Alternative Rock, Chip/Gamemusic, Orchestral/Symphony and Industrial. Not really narrowing it down :P

Here are "some" favorites, in no specifik order at all.

Seether
Sevendust
TMG (Tak Matsumoto Group)
Queens of the Stoneage
Black Mages
Creed
Kamelot
Arctic Monkeys
Onmyouza
Mind Bomb
Mew
Hanz Zimmer
The Brilliant Green
Beltaine
Camille
iMOGEN HEAP/Frou Frou
Jamiroquai
Agonoize
Andy McKee

Some specifik tracks i recommend:

Fury in my eyes - http://youtube.com/watch?v=9VjX2DflxFI - An awesome song from an awesome anime.
Libera Me from hell - http://youtube.com/watch?v=oAlztMvvNkk&feature=related - probably one of the best blends between classical music and hiphop.
Enemy - http://youtube.com/watch?v=uygz-deonGM
Fake it - http://youtube.com/watch?v=wWfP1RqGXyo&feature=related
Drifting - http://youtube.com/watch?v=Ddn4MGaS3N4 - This guy is just awesome!
Hanabi - http://youtube.com/watch?v=emrd1iMeaEg

I'm currently listening to the No More Heroes soundtrack. It has some really good songs, even though most are variations of the theme. As far as (new i.e. not old-school like NES- or SNES-era) game soundtracks go Okami, Viewtiful Joe and No More Heroes pretty much sums up the best game music. Traditional RPG music doesn't really count because it all sounds pretty much the same, and Hollywood does it better.
