Supershit 666 or Super$hit 666 were a European rock supergroup consisting of Ginger from The Wildhearts on vocals and guitar, Nicke Andersson from the Hellacopters on vocals and drums, Dregen from the Backyard Babies on vocals and guitar, and Swedish producer Thomas Skogsberg on bass.

The only Supershit 666 release was an eponymous 6-track EP on Inferno Records released in 1999.[1] They have never played any gigs, and a minimum of rehearsing and recording time was used for the record. The EP can be compared to the 1996 Hellacopters album Supershitty to the Max!.

Although both Ginger and Dregen have repeatedly said in interviews they would like to record and perhaps tour under the Supershit 666 name again, due to the hectic schedules of all artists involved no firm plans have been made.
