Punk- try The Clash if you haven't already, from there move to bands like The Stranglers and The Jam. If you like those bands, check out modern projects by their members, such as Gorillaz, Paul Weller's solo career and The Good, The Bad & The Queen (that might lead you onto Blur, which in turn leads you to the whole world of Britpop...)
The magical world of Britpop
When I first heard Lana Del Rey on the radio I wasn't too sure about her... but she's more compelling if you can see her while she sings. She's growing on me.

Disclaimer first: I am not a Twilight fan. My sisters love the books and movies. My younger sister bought the first soundtrack, and I was surprised by how much I liked it. I have the first three, and all of them are filled with great indie/alternative bands that I probably would never have heard of.
I strongly recommend you sample some of the music on amazon. Some of the best artists on the albums are Ok Go, Fanfarlo, The Black Keys, Vampire Weekend, Florence and the Machine, Sia, Linkin Park, Muse, Mutemath, The Dead Weather (Jack White's other other band...check out other things by him, too), and Iron and Wine. The cds offer a great way to sample artists before buying everything. There is a good variety of great artists, too.
