Shit man. Should a called it quits when lead singer hanged himself. How many years ago was that? Not gonna google it but it was a long time ago.

Then they had an american idol like competition for lead replacement.

HANG IT UP BITCHES. Your not gonna replace Hutchense. Charismatic. Stage presence. Voice. The look. Your not gonna replace a guy like that.

Like Queen. Surviving members post Freddy Mercury want to cash in. THE FANS SAID F*CK YOU. Its over bitches. Like the Doors post Jim Morrison.

INXS YOU WERE BEST OZ band in history BUT you F*CKED UP your legacy by trying to cash in.

Dope all the songs posted so far are songs when michael hutchence was singer, agree he was one of a kind, and who knows what more hits the public have missed due to his death.
I lost interest in Inxs after michael died
he was very charismatic

but after looking though youtube i heard a few songs with the new lead singer, i will post a few later,hes not as good as michael was but he still had a good voice, and after all this is now the end of Inxs they have retired now. so it s good to at least remember there hits and the pleasure and excitement they gave to alot of people around the world.

There were a few aussie bands of equal quality like Icehouse. ACDC is heavy rock, which is really a slighly different category.

I can't believe that you people think INXS were a good band. All INXS's music is shit! Michael Hutchences wanted to be Jim Morrison and The Doors are crap anyway. You people probaly think Jimmy Barnes's music is good. I saw him live once and he brought his little kids on stage to sing. The Tin Lids, they were called, it was a joke!

One of the only good INXS songs

Australian Crawl were heaps better than INXS, James Reyne was even good solo. There are just so many better Australian bands than INXS. INXS were even a joke at the AFL Grand Final, don't worry they'll reform in a few years to play RSLs.

I think INxS got big on the scene as Aussle Crawl and Chisel were making their exits. Mic was a hit with the ladies, so no accounting for taste really, but the band wasn't complete crap musically either. Once those types hit it big globally, their like a brand that's in fashion. They come and go and eventually it's just history.

No doubt the Farriss boys will cook up something to keep the cash flow happening. Probably pitching some other wannabes or some shit.
