Another one for Amarok, but I have a third gen ipod and it always mess things up every time I connect it to my PC so I use rythmbox for Ipod sync.

XMMS is my all time favorite. Audacious is quite nice too.

Audacious is my first pick everytime. But I like simple, just play the friggin music players and get annoyed with the do it all players.
Just need the player, equalizer and playlist and I'm good to go.

mplayer, it pops up in all sorts of odd places. I think they found some of it embedded into dvd player firmware etc. If its good enough to clone like that its good enough for me!
I seriously do type mplayer filename.mp3 to hear something, although when I want a gui I use audacious.
It just so happens that the two already have awesome output modules which build against the JACK toolkits.
You havent lived until you've fed your mp3 collection into audacious then using jack into rakarrak guitar effects studio at 3am on full volume while playing with all the knobs, under the effects of quality alcohol. On a side note, skype through the same effects bank with the alsa legacy plugin is fun to call people with too. My girlfriend said I was immature. Damn she knows me well.

There is a newer project called QMMP, which is quite nice. Simple, straight-forward and no fluff.

@eldiablo
Installed it last night after reading your reply. Had most of the dependencies installed already just needed 4 files for the install.
Played several albums with it, I like it. It's default treble bias seems to be a little higher then Audacious and it uses a little more ram and cpu%. I'm on and older box circa 2003 so I have to pay attension to the little things.
Thanks for the tip sir.

I know this thread is old but I haven't seen anyone recommend Goggles Music Manager. Google it and check it out. It's very lightweight and straight to the point. Ever since i've learned about it and started using it; I haven't looked back.

Huh, hadn't heard of this one until now! Looks like it doesn't do anything other than organize and play music, plus there's a prebuilt Arch Linux package. Thanks for the suggestion.
