Good music recommendations (any genres)?



Okay, so I got a laptop and I want build up my music library but i don't want to copy the music from the family computer because I'm not really the biggest fan of mainstream music anymore (Rhianna and Lady GaGa and stuff...)

So, can anyone recommend any artists, albums or songs that are good? I'm trying to widen my music knowledge as well so different genres would be grand.

Hahaha... Thanks :)

I'm 16 if that helps...
