Ever heard of the band Kix? Chances are you may have heard one or two of their songs, but not much else. That’s because they didn’t have very many hit songs, which is a crime. Their music can easily beat out many of the songs of their more popular ’80s glam metal/hair metal peers. Why? The music is more creative, hard-hitting, and metal/hard rock infused, unlike the pop-infused glam bands of the late ’80s and early ’90s.
I started listening to Kix in August after I borrowed the album Hot Wire from my brother. It was love at first listen. For Christmas I got the Blow My Fuse album, and I bought some select tracks from Midnite Dynamite and Show Business on iTunes. So, here is a list of my favorite Kix songs and a few clips.
