    Sometimes, a supergroup sounds like something completely different from the members' other groups. Other times, it's exactly what you hope it would sound like, and this group made exactly one album and nailed it.

    Song: No One Loves Me & Neither Do I
    Year: 2009
    Genre: Hard Rock
    Members from which bands: Foo Fighters, Queens of the Stone Age, and a little known band called Led Zeppelin

    Why: I will always have a soft spot for artists that make an album using an orchestra, and Serj Tankian decided perform his first album, Elect the Dead, in its entirety with this orchestra.

    Band: The Who
    Song: Behind Blue Eyes
    Year: 1971
    Why: I don't like to repeat artists in this series, the only other time I've done that so far has been with Queen. We welcome back The Who to the "Song of the Day" thanks to the television show Legion, which is one of the best shows on TV to date, in one of the best song placements in a show in recent memory.

    Why: A perfect example of a band that had it made in the shade in the late-90s, and then tried to capitalize on that sound for another fifteen years without really growing.
