    The problem with INXS is that their big hits are indistinguishable from U2's hits of the time. Maybe U2 copied INXS at that time - or maybe it also worked both ways.

    And since, at least to people not familiar with much of INXS's work apart from the hits, U2 have done more than INXS, it means that, in
    posterity, they only have Michael Hutchence's handsome looks as a unique selling point.

    Their songs are, of course, greater than most today but if I could only keep INXS or practically any big British band between 1985-1997, I'd
    keep the British band because they're likely to be less replaceable in song style.
