Of all those, the only ones I've heard are the Arctic Monkeys and Muse. As much as I like the Arctic Monkeys music, I find the lyrics a little immature...admittedly, I'm not their target audience. If I were judging a contest between the two I'd probably choose Muse.

Of course, I'm sure that some of those other bands are also excellent...I just haven't heard them. Although I've fondled that Thom Yorke disk a few times.
