Now here's a supergroup we would love to see perform regularly. During a recent concert in New Zealand in support of former Crowded House singer-songwriter Neil Finn's cameo-packed new album, Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy led an all-star backing band -- including Radiohead's Ed O'Brien and Phil Selway, Wilco bassist John Stirratt, legendary Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr, and Neil's son Liam -- in a rocking rendition of Radiohead classic "Fake Plastic Trees."

Check out video of the performance below. Admittedly, the quality isn't exactly in top form, but seeing these musicians together in any form is rare!

Watch: Jeff Tweedy and Pals, "Fake Plastic Trees"
