Two of my favorite uses, which also caused me to go out and buy the albums (I'm old, I still call them albums):
I don't remember the video, it was backpacking related and, I think, I saw it from a link posted on BPL, used the Yeah Yeah Yeahs' "Skeleton." Fit in with the video wonderfully.
The other was a video, from a link posted by Diplomatic Mike, of a hellacious 'race' in Scotland, I believe, which used Michael Marra's "Constable le Clock." A fabulous song.
If you like just music, no words, Boards of Canada does some great stuff that would work well, as does Afro Celt Sound System. Broken Social Scene has some stuff that would work (believe it was Eugenius who turned me on to them).
Gosh, I don't even think of Vedder when I think of music to put a trip to.
