XBMC can play internet streaming audio flawlessly but requires about 10 mins worth of work. The format you want to use is files with a .pls extension, but the hard part is obtaining these .pls files. Luckly someone has made a java based program to just this. It's called ShoutcastPlsDownloader.
It's freeware and can be found at:
Simply download it and run from a dos-based window to generate your playlist files. You have to add the "-downloaddirectory <path>" switch and that's it. Then ftp your newly created .pls's over to your xbox. Run and enjoy.
