You can grab my iconpack  see link below.
Otherwise you can do it manually in the registry. If you don't know how to do that let me know. But you should know how to use regedit before you do that.

Let me explain. Make a .reg file (test.reg etc.) in notepad. Write something like this to create a filetype for mpc.
what is written in red is the path to your icon.
The green is the path to your media player.
Change that.

Code: [Select]
REGEDIT4

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.mpc]
@="Musepack audio"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Musepack audio]
@="Musepack audio"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Musepack audio\DefaultIcon]
@="[color=red]C:\\Programmer\\AudioIcons\\mpcicon.bmp[/color]"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Musepack audio\shell]
@="Play"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Musepack audio\shell\Enqueue]
@="&Enqueue in foobar2000"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Musepack audio\shell\Enqueue\command]
@="\"[color=green]C:\\Programmer\\foobar2000\\foobar2000.exe\[/color]" /ADD \"%1\""

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Musepack audio\shell\Play]
@="&Play in foobar2000"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Musepack audio\shell\Play\command]
@="\"[color=green]C:\\Programmer\\foobar2000\\foobar2000.exe\[/color]" \"%1\""


Save the file and run it.
Hope that fast explanation is enough.
If you are not used to working with the registry I would not advice doing edits like this. However one time has to be the first.

edit: JamesBond is right. I added that.

i think there is something missing, the first line of the file MUST be REGEDIT4.

Code: [Select]
REGEDIT4

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.mpc]
@="Musepack audio"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Musepack audio]
@="Musepack audio"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Musepack audio\DefaultIcon]
@="C:\\Programmer\\AudioIcons\\mpcicon.bmp"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Musepack audio\shell]
@="Play"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Musepack audio\shell\Enqueue]
@="&Enqueue in foobar2000"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Musepack audio\shell\Enqueue\command]
@="\"C:\\Programmer\\foobar2000\\foobar2000.exe\" /ADD \"%1\""

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Musepack audio\shell\Play]
@="&Play in foobar2000"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Musepack audio\shell\Play\command]
@="\"C:\\Programmer\\foobar2000\\foobar2000.exe\" \"%1\""

Assuming this is Windows, you can just goto tools > options > filetypes and make them look like whatever you want.
