Halo 2 Montage - Song Advice Needed

Hi. I’m making a Halo 2 montage for my friends’ team. I only have 3 months to make the montage, and I need help choosing the BEST songs. The montage is going to be approximately 8 minutes long, and I need good songs that I could edit the videos to. I don’t really know the Greatest Hits of these days, so I came to kirupa forums.

Please, no country music, no emo music, and NO rap. Please.
Any ideas?
