Tinted Windows, the supergroup we've mentioned before that features Cheap Trick drummer Bun E. Carlos, Smashing Pumpkins guitarist James Iha, Fountains of Wayne bassist/tunesmith Adam Schlesinger and Hanson singer (yes, Hanson) Taylor Hanson, has unveiled a track off their new album which will hit on April 21st.

The bar for supergroups has been set awfully low in recent years (I'm talking to you, Audioslave) -- but Tinted Windows sound like you want them to: Cheap Trick with Fountains of Wayne's lyrical cleverness, Smashing Pumpkins blistering guitars, and a really gifted singer. At least that's my take.

What's yours? What supergroups hit and missed for you in the past?

Can you help us out?
