I think Devo is really uninspiring, and lame. I also think the B-52s are as well, though Talking Heads are great...
Not sure if this is unpopular, but I think Ride The Lightning is the best Metallica album.
I enjoy listening to Children of Bodom, DragonForce, and Symphony X.
There's probably some others-but I can't think of them at this moment.
Edit: I think Interpol is one of the most fun to listen to and inspirational bands of all time.
