By leaving out indie music, you're really limiting yourself. Most of the mainstream rock like Nickelback or 3 Doors Down or Creed is totally awful, while a lot of independent musicians have tons of creativity and talent.

What artists do you currently like - naming a few musicians with a similar sound would really help out.

The Black Keys.

Muse.

Wolfmother. (Click here, listen to "Mind's Eye" then "Woman".)*

And, of course, Tenacious D.

* Brian SD - if you're reading - these guys are playing in San Diego on June 13, you should check 'em out, they're awesome live.

I second Tenacious D, songs like Wonderboy and Tribute are just plain awsome. I recommend The Mars Volta to anyone who will listen. I was recently introduced to My Morning Jacket at the Pearl Jam Concert, they are an awsome live band and they seem a little more in tune with your current likes.

That's incredibly general. I could give you thousands upon thousands of suggestions if I knew what you enjoyed.

Try Gov't Mule's "The Deep End" (I think it's 2 volumes).
