Supergroup alert! Them Crooked Vultures take flight

I have a fascination with supergroups.  At their very best, they can be one of the greatest bands in the history of rock (Cream).  At their worst, well, they can be awful.

Luckily, this new "supergroup" that just popped up has the makings of being one of the good ones.  Them Crooked Vultures features Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters), Josh Homme (Queens of the Stone Age) and John Paul Jones (Led Zeppelin).  Grohl and Homme have worked together before, and both are seasoned collaborators.  Jones was one of four towering pillars in the most monolithic rock band of all time, and he's a talented multi-instrumentalist to boot.

The group released an instrumental preview of one of the tracks from its new album, along with a promotional video.  Please enjoy "Scumbag Blues."
