oops. seems to be a very homogenous poll. none of those matches:
-accapella (Rajaton, Vocal Sampling, Flying Pickets). of those, Rajaton (finnish) is the best, VS is very funny and pro too. Pickets are great on stage. I Suggest you listen Butterfly from Rajaton. Perhaps the best accapella ever.
-Tenacious D is good, too
-finnish music in general (Rauli "Badding" Somerjoki, FreudMarxEngels&Jung to name a few greatest)
-absolutely none of the crap in your list, no offence fellaŽ

I put rock but it is well known (in real life) that I tend to be a rather huge Deadhead. Most funk, jam, etc music is great for me. Of course, I listen to everything but that type of music tends to be playing around me most often. Phish, Dead, Beatles (especially Lennon's later works post-Beatles)... whatever.

Currently playing: David Bowie "Man who sold the world."

@pevelius: Tenacious D is just hilarious.

idm, electro and ambient. Music created by (mostly) geeks of course.

C64 sid tunes and old Amiga 4 channel 8bit (demoscene) modules. People are still putting out tunes on the C64 sid btw.
