It wasn’t so long ago that if you decided to form a Super-group it was a given that your album would sell millions, you’d tour for as long as you want and reap the financial rewards without too much of an effort. Not anymore, it has been a number of years since a group of “killer” musicians have come together and formed a band worthy of the title “super-group”. Well folks, we think we’ve found the newest candidate for this crown in the form of Teenage Time Killers. Rock’s newest power-house is led by Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters, and Corey Taylor from Slipknot, but it doesn’t end there, the project features a huge list of real deal performers across the album’s twenty tracks.

Grohl and Taylor are joined by Germs/Foo Fighters’ guitarist, Pat Smear, Queens of the bassist, Nick Oliveri, and Alkaline Trio’s Matt Skiba. The album also features appearances from Jello Biafra, Lee Ving, Randy Blythe, and Tommy Victor, among many others.

The album delivers like the lineup, it’s heavy on the guitars, full of awesome vocals, and screams “TURN ME UP.” So for all of you rockers who crank their music to “eleven” you’d be mad not to go out and buy on the day of release.
The album is set for official release and the end of July and in true Dave Grohl style is called “Greatest Hits Volume 1.”
Here’s a list of some past super-groups, can you think of anymore?
Asia: featuring Steve Howe of Yes, John Wetton of King Crimson, Geoff Downes of The Buggles and Yes and Carl Palmer of Emerson, Lake & Palmer.
Traveling Wilburys: featuring George Harrison Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, Jeff Lynne and Roy Orbison.
Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young: Before there was CSNY, there was Crosby, Stills and Nash. The trio came together after David Crosby quit the The Byrds, Graham Nash became frustrated with The Hollies and Stephen Stills watched Buffalo Springfield disintegrate. They were already hot (Their 1969 self-titled album spawned two Top 40 singles) when Neil Young, Stills’ former Buffalo Springfield bandmate, joined the party in late ’69. A classic album, Déjà Vu, followed.
