80s Awesomeness! ~ 11

It's all about -


This band is probably one of the greatest creations ever to come out of the 80s. And it's pronounced "in ex es," not inks. Hey, I made the same mistake when I first stumbled on them when I was really little. Their sound is unlike anything heard on the radio, either then or now. And to say it's transcended time is an understatement.


Unfortunately Michael Hutchence, the gorgeous lead singer, died in 1997. While INXS is still around, they're only a shadow of their former selves without his magnificent presence at the helm. Had he survived, I have no doubt INXS would have maintained the type of staying power that U2 currently enjoys.

And the way he died...

Sure loved that band. I was lucky enough to see them in concert right before the "end". It was fantastic. It was right after Kurt Cobain died. Michael H. spoke a few words about it.

Lenore, yeah, that's why I decided to leave that out. No need to rehash that.

I'm jealous, Toni! Unfortunately I was much too young to go to one of their concerts but I remember crying when I found out he died. I was in the car with my dad when they announced it on the radio.
