Some good ones already mentioned but here are a couple I like that maybe aren't as well known.

R Grill Party Dust : This is a rub made by Eric Thomas of The Rolling Grill out of Georgia. It really works well on anything and is lower in sugar than most rubs, so it works well for hot and fast or low and slow.

Hardcore Carnivore Black : Fantastic beef rub with activated charcoal and it gives a killer appearance and very "Texas" flavor.

I must be in minority, I find Plowboys yardbird far too salty. I prefer their bovine bold

Plowboys Fin and Feather-Salmon

Kosmos's Dirty Bird-Just about anything
Oakridge Carne Crosta-Steaks

Dizzy Pig has good seasonings I've liked

For now I'm an Oakridge fanboy. Secret Weapon for pork, SPOGOS for beef, HDD for chicken.

Other than that it's either homemade rubs/blends or McCormick's Montreal for steaks and burgers.

I agree with Pink Panther on the saltiness of Yardbird.

I like Swamp Boys on my ribs. Good balance. Great color. Hint of cherry?

Loving Boar's Night Out White Lightning on just about anything lately - steak, burgers, potatoes, etc.

I just tried Oakridge Dominator Sweet Rub and was impressed. Had a hint of cinnamon.

Definitely love Plowboys Yardbird for chicken

The other one is Barberian's steak seasoning. This from a Toronto based steakhouse and I received in one of the tradeoffs. It is so delicious on steaks and burgers!!!

Also like Jalapeno Garlic rub on burgers

I do like to make my own for beef, but I use yardbird for pretty much any chicken or pork. I even modify it a little for nekkid fatties.

I like the yardbird rub so much I just recently purchased a 5lb bag of the stuff.

For my ribs and lollipop chicken and wangs I love Gary's Seasoning. I use the hot for mamma and the sweet for mamma. Put the hot first then the sweet it makes for an awesome combo. Oakridge stuff is also good Black Ops on brisket is good stuff.

Sako ----- you are super correct except I am not a fan of the cinnamon in the Dominator rub. Cinnamon, to me, belongs on toast or cinnamon rolls, not on ribs.....

1. Simply Marvelous Spicy Apple and Cherry Rubs for pork shoulders/butts.
2. Plowboys Yardbird for Chicken and Country style pork ribs.
3. Malcolm Reeds The BBQ Rub for ribs.

I like a ton of other rubs but those are the ones I use the most.
