Punk: This should be obvious, but Fugazi, a few years back Government Issue, Agent Orange. I don't know if they would be considered punk but And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of The Dead's Source Codes and Tags is a great album.
Not quite punk, but more industrial, I have been playing alot of Ministry lately, especially the live cd In Case You Didn't Feel Like Showing Up, the "So What" and "Thieves" are fierce.

Thanks, Artie. I've got every Fugazi that I've ever seen and have dug 'em since high school. Used to rock Ministry, too, but a bit too industrial for this guy. I'll check into some of those others...
Anyone else?"All God does is watch us and kill us when we get boring. We must never, ever be boring."

for punk - may I suggest all of the late-80s Dischord bands?
Dag Nasty, especially, for one.

Zero 7, Saint Germaine are awesome awesome awesome. Those are the two groups that led me to thievery corp and morcheeba.

This is more jazz than what you might be looking for but I like:
Kyoto Jazz Massive
anything by Compost Records is sick as
Future Sounds of Jazz (any of them are good)
Ryukyu Underground (nice if you like Okinawan/Reggae)
Those are some off the top of my head that I really likeパウダーバカ！！

Steel Pulse Live (amazing album!) really....most Steel Pulse albums...try out the song "back to my roots" or "sound system" to get the flavah, definitely one of my favorite reggae bands.
Toots and Maytals
Dropkick Murphys, look for their older stuff...Rocky Road to Dublin, Good Rats, Skinhead on the MBTA, Pipebomb on Landsdowne st
Straw Dogs (their replacement drummer's name was Bob Foraples..cool huh?)
Minor Threatthats new hampshire as fuck

Bad Brains used to be a lot of fun. They'd play either reggae, ska or punk. The most hilarious thing that when they'd play Seattle (which they did a lot in the early 80's) they play whatever the audience didn't want to hear. If the audience was punk, they'd play reggae. It's it was brosey, they'd play punk. I loved it.
Dig up their yellow record. They've refornmed recently and a bunch of their old stuff has been rereleased.Merde De Glace

Slightly Stoopid is a good one. So is Long Beach Dub All-Stars for reggae but there old stuff is better.

Some punk-ish suggestions:
Jawbreaker -- Classic east bay popish punk that spawned millions of imitators. Can't go wrong with their "Unfun" or "24 Hour Revenge Therapy" discs. Captured them at their peak IMO...another earlier one of theirs, "Bivouac", is very good too but not as 'listenable' overall if you've never heard them before. And their last disc before breaking up, "Dear You", is good, but a little too poppy and the production is too smoothed out for my tastes. Lead singer Blake Schwardnsdfsadfsdfdssjdsj...went on to form Jets to Brazil. Some Jawbreaker info here
Weston -- "A Real Life Story of Teenage Rebellion" or "Got Beat Up". Sappy, but happy pop-punk songs that will have your toe tappin and singin along in no time flat. Lots of Ramones type influences. Check out www.gernblandsten.com or www.insound.com
Garden Variety - "Garden Variety" and "Knocking the Skill Level". If you like Pavement type bands...you might want to check these guys. These guys are a little grittier and more underground though, so you'll be much cooler than the guy in the car next to you at the stoplight.
have a bunch more....gotta run tho

In addition to those mentioned before."I smell varmint puntang."

Punk - AFI...especially their last few albums (Black Sails in the Sunset, Sing the Sorrow and The Art of Drowning.
At The Drive In/ Sparta...dunno if this is considered punk, but some great tunes nonetheless
Nomeansno - old school canadian punkish music.
Reggae - Natiruts (pronounced Natchihoots) and Tribo de Jah...Brazilian Reggae. In fact i recommend any Brazilian Reggae. They rule the scene.
thieveryesque- DJ Greyboy is a great artist...all my ther suggestions have been mentioned.

thiveresque : go dive in the cafe del mar vol 1 to 8. 5 and 6 are the ones i like better. There's a dj from montreal called Freeworm, i don't know if you'll find any of is shit on internet though. YOU WILL LOVE BRAN VAN 3000, its a group from montreal it takes all the styles and mixes them into one groovy one. rumors of a new album in the near future.
punquesque : if ya like afi go tiger army
reggae : try Chango family from Venezuela, Kaliroots from quebec. i will second tribo de jah, the best way into them is probably their cover of war by marley and santeria by sublime. it took me a while to enjoy them. i don't know why. from France their is a band called Raspigaous. its french but real nice...
jackjohnsonesque: try Mason Jennings (its a bob dylan-jack johnson mix, try also Xavier Rudd ( its a Dave Matthews-Ben Harper slide guitar with didgiridoo mix) quite good.
french rap : Passi, try it.shut up and ski

IMHO both Mason Jenn and Donovan are a little mellower, subtler (sp?) than JJ; personally I don't like their stuff much."... she'll never need a doctor; 'cause I check her out all day"
