chickenfootIn case you’ve missed all 24,567 Blabbermouth posts over the past year and a half about them, Chickenfoot are a new supergroup featuring Joe Satriani, Michael Anthony, Sammy Hagar and Chad Smith. Looks cool on paper, but supergroups never seem to pan out they way they ought to, amirite? The problem always seems to be that supergroups are really going for it and trying to be taken seriously, a problem from which Chickenfoot shouldn’t suffer at all since each band member is a millionaire several times over from their respective day jobs. In other words, none of them need this; it’s just for shits and kicks.

So is it any good?

Listen to some album clips for yourself, then check out the video below of the band performing live in Cambridge, MA last night. One thing I’d forgotten before seeing this video: Chad Smith is a fucking monster of a drummer that hits the skins just right, a skill he doesn’t necessarily get to hone too much with his day job. Chickenfoot’s self-titled debut comes out on June 5th.

So… what does the MetalSucks Haterade Mafia think of Chickenfoot? You tell us.
