There are quite a few sources of legally free music, like Jamendo and ccMixter. And it's also easy to find non-free music which is not funding whoever it is exactly you don't want to fund. Often direct from the artist!
Even though I've only done it once or twice, my personal favorite way is to buy from good local acts at a live venue.
You lack imagination (even though I sympathize with your feelings).
