It isn’t that difficult to figure out why INXS got so big. Originally starting out as a pub band they incorporated just enough of the New Wave element to fit in with that crowd, but kept enough of their original Rock credo to attract that set. As they evolved, they created a danceable Rock sound that could play on any radio station. Throw in the sultry good looks of the deceased Michael Hutchence and you had an instant recipe for international stardom. The 1990’s Alternative movement put a major dent in their sales and Hutchence’s suicide in 1997 should have put the band on ice. Surprisingly, INXS has managed to soldier on, and is not impossible that they have some excellent music left in them. If they can reemerge with another solid album, they could find their chances for induction greatly improve.
