- White Stripes. The quintessential two person rock group. Check out Elephant, and be surprised by the sheer amount of sound that can come from one guitar and one drum set.
- Black Keys. Another stripped down rock duo with a real bluesy sound. Check out Attack and Release.
- Matt & Kim. Check out Grand and enjoy the punky, DIY sound from these New York indie rockers.
- Daft Punk. Arguably the most well known electronic group, they just released the new Tron Legacy soundtrack.
- OutKast. One of the most successful hip-hop acts of all time and Stankonia is one of the masterpieces.
- Simon and Garfunkel. The Concert in Central Park is the stuff of American legend.
- Eurythmics. Confession: I used to have a copy of their Greatest Hits.
- Hall & Oates. The Essential Hall & Oates has two discs worth of music from this songwriting duo.
- Smothers Brothers. Tom and Dick Smothers were influential, controversial, and hilarious. Check out their television show with The Best of Season 3.
- Flight of the Conchords. New Zealand's second most popular folk band. Their self-titled album features music from the HBO series.
- Tenacious D. Self proclaimed Greatest Band On Earth. Check out their self-titled album.
