    Styx is a deity and a river that forms the boundary between Earth and the Underworld. The rivers Acheron, Cocytus, Lethe, Phlegethon, and Styx all converge at the center of the underworld on a great marsh, which sometimes is also called the Styx.

    Still trying to figure out how someone forgets a band that sold 54,000,000 records/cassettes/CDs?

    This thread does seem to demonstrate, both pro and con, that Styx is not quite the forgotten band the thread premise suggests.

    I think it was really more of a "why doesn't everyone hate the bands I hate" thread.

    I was a big fan of Styx circa Pieces of Eight (when I was 9 years old) but lost interest shortly after that.

    I especially like that kind of thread, especially when Post #1 is by someone who starts off angry and hurt that not all humankind appreciates their favorite band.

    Someone could suggest Mott the Hopple is better than the Shaggs, but no they're not.

    We define “fun” differently.

    "Come sail away with me lads!" sings he of the curly hair and the Venice Gondolier's shirt ... oh lord.

    If only they'd have listened to me and made a double LP set for their 5th and 6th albums and named it "5,6 ... Pick Up Styx". That would have been huge.

    Not a fan but in no position creatively or musicianshiply to criticize Styx one way or another.

    Maybe they could combine their style with that band that sings the dust song. "All we are is Styx in the mud, styyyyyx in the mud".
