Hey as a closet hip hop fan, check out Lady GaGa (which is a way better name than Stefani Joanne Angelin Germonotta. She was discover by one of my favorite singers Akon. Wrote songs for Pussycat Dolls. Apparently the genre is glam-rock whatever that is but reminds folks of Bowie and Queen. Mainly reminds me of europop to me anyway.
Other groups, showing how eclectic life can be is The Fray. I loved Over My Head from their debut album. Alternative rock, but a great sound. How to Save a Life was brilliant. You Found Me is a real favorite.
