I need new music and I have no taste.

I need to broaden my horizons regarding the music I listen to. My last music purchase was years ago. Please suggest something new (or at least - new to me). I have no taste whatsoever.

My collection is all over the place. Things I like most include The Tea Party, The Darkness, U2, Live, KMFDM, E.S. Posthumous, Evanescence, Enigma, Santana, The Cat Empire, Icebrecher, Oasis, AC-DC, and Jet. There are others, but generally it seems like goth-lite from a rock background with occasional forays into world music and electronica.
I should probably also warn you that I'm stuck in the 80's at the moment with The Hoodoo Guru's, Queen, Def Leppard, Alice Cooper with a minor dose of Aerosmith, Bon Jovi & co. I believe there's some Heart lying around somewhere...
I am partial to strong melodies, blazing guitar solo's, strong beats and the odd rock or dance anthem (although not all at once).
I hate RnB, hip-hop etc, and most Jazz. Other than that, I'm pretty game.
Based on the sad confession above, what bands or artists should I be looking at? I've tried various sites like Pandora and LastFM for suggestions and have found a few things that way, but have had to wade through way too much to want to do it again.
