1. Rhythmbox: Rhythmbox is the default music player in Ubuntu, and as such merits a place in this list. Widely used, Rhythmbox is a reliable, dependable, and extensible GTK music player that uses the Gstreamer backend. The standard layout of the app is straightforward to navigate, and it’s easy to filter through your music using the column browser or the search box. The app lets you do more than just play, manage and sort music and create playlists. It can scrobble to Last.fm, and it has built-in support for podcasts and internet radio stations. The player also boasts integration with online music service SoundCloud. Rhythmbox is a free and open-source audio player that plays and helps organize digital audio files. Rhythmbox is designed to work well under the GNOME desktop using the GStreamer media framework, however, it can function on desktop environments other than GNOME.

2. CMUS: This music player will appeal to every Linux user who loves CLI(Command Line Interface). CMUS is a music player that is based on command line interface & is undoubtedly the best CLI music player out there. & since it uses CLI, it is very light in memory use (around 4-6 mb in our case) & makes a good choice for Low-end systems. It is pretty simple to use & you can control it via commands entered through the keyboard. It supports all the audio formats you can throw at it & also boasts a series of good features like play queue, gapless music, playlists filter & also supports music streaming. Install CMUS using the command.
cmus is a small and fast console audio player for Unix-like operating systems. cmus is distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License and operates exclusively through a text-based user interface, built with ncurses.

3. DeaDBeeF: DeaDBeeF is billed as the music player app, and it goes a fair way to matching the claim.It’s generally talked of in terms of being a Linux version of the popular freeware Windows app Foobar2000, but a) DeaDBeeF (finicky capitalization aside) more than stands on its own. It is very much a music player though. It eschews the overblown feature sets you’ll see in other apps and instead favors a stripped-back focus on just playing music. The app also ships without any major dependencies on GNOME or KDE and doesn’t use a common media backend like GStreamer. DeaDBeeF is an audio player software available for GNU+Linux, Android and other Unix-like operating systems. DeaDBeeF is free and open source software, except on Android.

4. Audacious: Audacious is a free and open-source music player which focuses on high audio quality with the use of minimum resources. Best thing about this audio player is that it works perfectly well on PCs with low specifications. It supports all the major audio formats. Audacious has a very simple user interface with everything placed perfectly for easier navigation. You can also customize themes and appearance in an Audacious music player. All the necessary controls in this MP3 player for pc are stacked at the top that can be used to add music files to the playlist, skip the song, pause it, or shuffle and repeat it. Audacious is a free and open-source audio player software with a focus on low resource use, high audio quality, and support for a wide range of audio formats. It is designed primarily for use on POSIX-compatible systems such as Linux, with limited support for Microsoft Windows.

5. Spotify: Spotify Naturally, as one of the biggest music streaming services in the world (and one which I know a great many of you use daily) we couldn’t not give a spot to Spotify. A little known fact is that, while yes it’s a big a memory hungry, is Spotify can also play your local media files. It’s not the most perfect feature as — big, big warning so please take notice it can totally screw up your track metadata without so much as a prompt or a whistle. But, even for free account users, you get access to a much bigger array of music than that you (likely) have locally. Plus the Linux app is decent enough, integrates well into the Ubuntu desktop (yep, sound menu support is present) and so on. Spotify Technology S.A. is a Swedish media-services provider founded in 2006. The company's primary business is its audio streaming platform that provides DRM-protected music and podcasts from record labels and media companies.

Sayonara player is the best for me. Ignoring its weabooish name, its otherwise the one of best player I have used that implement lots things correctly (at least by shabby standards of Linux desktop).
If you like Mediamonkey or Musicbee in Windows, this is the closest you can get in pure qt Linux.
