You seem to quite like poppy/catchy rock type stuff, so from my collection I'd recommend Everclear, Sparta (and perhaps some At The Drive In), Audiovent, Rival Schools, and you'd probably like Hundred Reasons and Hell Is For Heroes (although I can't stand either of them).

Not really the same as those bands, but no one can hate MUSE. Check the older albums - Showbiz and Origin of Symmetry rather than Absolution, it's a bit meh.

I'd say Jimmy Eat World is a given.
Bright Eyes, Desaparecidos, Cursive, Christiansen, The Kinison, Dredg, Murder By Death, Minus the Bear, The Siletto Formal, REFUSED, Gratitude, Far, Onelinedrawing, New End Original or even just Jonah Matranga himself and you might like Death Cab for Cutie.

If you dig on Bright Eyes, try Maria Taylor.

And Mew. Did I mention Mew? No. Mew.

I'll raise your 65 Days of Static with 65daysofstatic :p

And I'll properly raise you with Shora and Russian Circles for post-rock goodness.

Well :) , The Killers, The Libertines, Phantom Planet, The Raconteurs, The Strokes, Muse, We Are Scientists, and The Futureheads may just float your boat.
System of a Down have some good songs if you're into that. I thought i didnt like that sort of music, but i changed my mind :p. Disturbed are also great.

Bah, Absolution is fantastic. The bass on Stockholm Syndrome needs a health warning.

I've not actually heard them. But I will raise you with A Silver Mount Zion.

Also, AFI should be mentioned if you haven't already heard them.

And The Faint for some dancy-elecrto-punky goodness.
