From 2013, please enjoy the appropriately titled "The Man Who Never Was" by...well, actually I'm not going to tell you who it's by, which is why it's appropriately titled.
In any case, it's a great kick-ass rock song by people you've probably heard of, and the whole point is for you to guess who it is.
Have I mentioned no Googling?
Anyway, if you already know please don't give it away in comments.
I should also add that if you didn't know in advance and still managed to guess right strictly because you're too cool for school, you will win a coveted PowerPop No-Prize and all the gloating privileges that entails.
UPDATE: For those of you who didn't cheat, that track is, of course the more interesting than I thought Rick Springfield collaborating with Dave Grohl and company, from the soundtrack to the quite splendid music documentary Sound City, which I had somehow missed when it came out last year. A terrific movie, BTW, and I highly recommend it. Here's the trailer...
...and you can stream the whole thing at Amazon.
