Linux MP3 players?


I've just started to use linux, and found that red hat 9 did not include any players for mp3.

Could someone please recommend one? Most of my music files are in mp3 format and I would like to be able to listen to them when I'm working in linux.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
