There are some bands I have never heard on shuffle and some i hear every time, seems the same when I randomly load my shuffle?! Bueller?
IIRC, there's an option to adjust that, but I'm not 100% sure on that. Check some of the menus in iTunes.
What you're probably experiencing is the nature of random events. If it picked songs perfectly evenly from the albums you have on there, it wouldn't be random. You'd be able to predict what would come next based on what just played (the band that just played would have a lower chance of being chosen for the next song). Random events appear to happen in groups of indeterminate size, they don't spread themselves out evenly.
