While Ozzfest may prosper and MotleyCrue shows sell out, the kingdom of hard rock still waits for a powerfulforce to regain dominion over the power chords cut by crunk, pop-punk, andindie rock. Fortunately, VH1 has assembled some of the heaviest rock icons,who stand ready to thrash a new trail of carnage and excess and to lead thehard rock world as their new gods of thunder.

VH1’s “SuperGroup:” Ted Nugent, Scott Ian, Sebastian Bach, EvanSeinfeld and Jason Bonham, are poised to re-conquer the rock world (andhopefully spread a little debauchery in the process) in the ultimatemusical experiment. Premiering Sunday May 21 at 10:00 p.m., “SuperGroup”will bring together these five hard rocking icons and present them with theopportunity to create the heaviest “SuperGroup.” Ultimately viewers willsee whether or not the band will come together as hard rock’s saviors orsimply implode.

Over a of period two weeks in Las Vegas, legendary rock manager, DocMcGhee, will shepherd the group towards their fate as hard rock heroes. Asan iconic rock manager, he automatically commands the respect of the bandmembers and is not afraid to crack the whip. He’s a taskmaster with atwo-week deadline that can’t be missed. On day one, Doc will clearly layout the stakes, goals, and the limited time that the SuperGroup truly hasto revitalize and rule hard rock.

Their quest will culminate with a massive concert at The EmpireBallroom in Vegas. Yet the question remains, hard rock is ready to besaved, but is the “SuperGroup” ready to save hard rock?
