20. SuperHeavy, 'SuperHeavy'
Supergroups are always tricky, but SuperHeavy seemed like an especially tough sell: a reggae/soul/raga/rock band featuring the disparate stylings of Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley, Joss Stone, ex-Eurythmic Dave Stewart, “Slumdog Millionaire” singer/composer A.R. Rahman, and Sir Mick freakin’ Jagger. It would have been amazing if it had all come together, but sure enough, the group’s self-titled debut was a mess. Marley sounded like he was toasting from another studio down the hall, Stone and Jagger’s vocal chemistry was non-existent, and the Indian flourishes felt gimmicky and half-baked. No one expected SuperHeavy to outsell the Rolling Stones, or even a Mick Jagger solo record, but its sluggish opening week (17,000 units) was neither super nor heavy—nor was its subsequent quick exit from the charts.
