Rock music

 group whose performers are already famous from having performed individually or in other groups".

In some cases, an act will later be referred to as a supergroup when multiple members from said group end up securing individual fame later on. Supergroups are often short-lived, lasting only for an album or two, although this is not always the case, as some of the examples shown below demonstrate. They are sometimes formed as side projects that are not intended to be permanent, while other times can become the primary project of the band members' careers.

History

The term took its name from the 1968 album Super Session

Criticism

In 1974, a Time magazine article entitled "Return of a Supergroup" quipped that the supergroup was a "potent but short-lived rock phenomenon" which was an "amalgam formed by the talented malcontents of other bands." The article acknowledged that groups such as Cream and Blind Faith "played enormous arenas and made megabucks, and sometimes megamusic", with the performances "fueled by dueling egos." However, while this "musical infighting built up the excitement...it also made breakups inevitable."

Chris DeVille's 2008 article "Super or blooper?", which is subtitled "Supergroups: So much promise, so often squandered", notes that "when well-known rockers get together in new configurations, they're guaranteed lots of attention, but these ego summits rarely bear fruit as fresh as what made these guys famous in the first place." DeVille praises supergroups such as Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young; Emerson, Lake & Palmer
