Styx didn’t really suck.
They were too nerdy for Glam/Arena Rock and they were annihilated at their peak by the MTV, Gay, Aussie, British, Michael Jackson stuff.
They got classed with Chick Rock like Journey, Kansas and Yes and were not hard-core as Rush, but really had some great tunes.
Some of their intros and bridges were a little too soft, but the songs still stand up.
My Three favorites:
- Blue Collar Man
- Too Much Time on My Hands
