Personally-- I never got into INXS. seemed just another MTV darling video band along with that lot. But then they WERE pop,not rock--so there you go. FM had a MOR sound maybe like a Foreigner lite with a bit more soul. When they reformed and rocked it up with Metropolis, that's when they clicked for me. THey may have gotten farther here in the US back when with that approach,but who knows? THunder was always hard edged blues rock,but couldn't get airplay here. As mentioned--alot of it is sadly up to timing,and radio's willingness to support the music by any given act. tHe knowledge of knowing WHAT song(s) to play doesn't hurt either. But I think most djs/music directors anymore are in it as a job and are mere robots for whatever format they're paid to play. Sad state of affairs but the best years for melrock have passed away because of this fact. T
