The History of INXS

The History of INXS Script written by Craig Butler. Formed in Sydney, Australia in 1977, INXS began as a new wave/ska band and broke into the American market with 1982’s "Shabooh Shoobah." After switching to a more rock and pop sound, they gained more success at home and had a top 5 U.S. hit. INXS also stood out for their live shows, especially frontman Michael Hutchence's performance skills. They finally became international stars with the 1987 album, "Kick." Sadly, Hutchence's personal problems led him to take his own life in 1997. Though the band continued with a new lead singer for a few years, they announced their breakup in 2012. In this WatchMojo.com video, we take a look at the history of INXS.
