Okay, maybe I'll have to re-evaluate

Jet, an Australian band, has a very catchy very retro-sounding hit 'Are You Gonna Be My Girl' which is just the epitome of self-centred male idiocy with really great music, and they're well-known, for, well, not bathing so regularly. But...their hearts are apparently in the right place (I've been a long-time fan of REM; I wasn't surprised to learn they were participating.). :)

REM, David Gray, Jet Offer Aid To Sudanese Refugees

The album (for which the artists will receive no royalties) is downloadable at:
Big Noise Music

For each download, £5 will be donated to the charity Oxfam for humanitarian aid to the Sudan and other areas of the world where they assist in promoting a life where every person is 'secure, skilled, equal, safe, healthy, and heard' . You can also donate directly to them by going to their donations page.
