Meh, the recommendations so far aren't bad albeit a bit predictable. These guys should keep you happy for a while:

Hip Hop/ Rap
50 Cent
Twista

Post Rock
My advice here is don't check it out. You're better off bypassing it and going straight onto classical. Most of that isn't worth checking out either, except:
Mozart
Beethoven

Indie
The Killers
The Automatic
