Top Ten Thursday: Super Supergroups

In honor of the Divine Fits album dropping next week we decided to craft a list of the top 10 supergroups to form throughout the years.  What makes a supergroup is a little hard to define, so we decided to create just a few quick guidelines when discussing various groups eligibility for the list.  First, the group must consist of 3+ members, and those members must have had a previous notable project prior to the formation of the group.  This
