Quod Libet handles many and long playlists, and it comes up fast. It has a long pre-loaded list of radio stations, although I tend to use Radio Tray.

Xine or mplayer. From time to time I'll use xmms if I'm in a winamp mood, but for the most part it's mplayer or xine.

Mplayer and xine really need to be added to the list.

gmusicbrowser !!!

It is the only application to use for large collections of albums.

The backend program I choose for it is mplayer.

I use banshee. Classical dependency hell but when it's set up right, it just blows everyone else away, feature-wise.

No one else can do Lyrics, Wikipedia, Last.FM suggestions + scrobbling, YouTube suggestions, similar sounding songs (with Mirage), BPM detection, mobile phone syncing, SoundCloud integration and unique visualizations at the same time.

I still use MOC and I like but I hear many people saying that MPD is even better so I'm going to give it a try someday.
