I've just discovered that British rock band Gomez has their entire catalogue streaming on their site. That means you can go all the way back to Bring It On and listen to 'Tijuana Lady' or to Liquid Skin and hear 'Rosalita', then jump to the more recent How We Operate and hear 'Notice' or 'See The World' and so forth.
