Pedro the Lion
Off the top of my head: Charlie Sexton, the Judys, Pylon, Brave Combo, Love & Rockets...I'd say Hank Williams, but that's probably cheating.
Good call on Shonen Knife.
Think that might be Jackie Leven. The most underrated artist that I know of. Why he's not more acclaimed is beyond me. A couple of his albums, especially "Fairytales for Hardmen" (1997), should be on the list.
The catalog of his former band Doll By Doll was reissued this spring, by the way. Everyone should check that out. The stuff is so great it hurts!
The Crusaders (no studio albums)
The Free Design
Grant Green (no solo albums)
The High Llamas
The Mizell Brothers

I forgot to put in the Trashcan Sinatras and Kitchens of Distinction.
The Barenaked Ladies are NOWHERE to be found on the site's lists.
Don't take it from me. Here is a quote from the late, great John Peel:
"My favourite record of the last ten years and possibly my life is an LP by a New York woman born in Nashville called Laura Cantrell. It's country, and I don't know why I like it, but it has the same sort of effect on me as Roy Orbison had in the '60s."
I'll second Barenaked Ladies and add in Larry Norman. The man practically invented the Christian rock genre.
I forgot the House of Love
I agree with Tim about Trashcan Sinatras.
The High Llamas only have 1 album mentioned in AM but they deserve more.
