Ever since rumours began that Zune would come preloaded with some tunes and videos, we've been wondering what Microsoft's music taste is like. And now we know: it's a big fan of college rock.

According to a post last night on the Zune Insider blog, Virgin Records' 30 Seconds To Mars - who dress like goths, but sound like the soundtrack to American Pie - will come preloaded on the social MP3 player. Fellow Microsoft blogger, Madison and Pine, also reveals CSS and Hot Chip will come bundled on Zune.

As well as giving an insight into Zune employee playlists, the news confirms the player will support video, putting to the sword web rumours to the contrary.

More college rock, as we get it.
