Styx is a kick ass 80's band that recorded such monster hits as "Renegade" and "Come Sail Away"; they are no where near the worst band ever, as that title belongs to those bitches known as REO Speedwagon.
Styx rules.

2. A rivr mentioned in the book of Genisis and Greek legend.
proformers of such cult classics as "Mr. Roboto" and "The Grand Illusion."

One of the greatest American rock bands ever formed. With a long active career that lasted from the early 70s to the mid 80s, Styx scored numerous hits such as "The Grand Illusion", "Blue Collar Man", "Pieces of Eight", "Babe", "Fooling Yourself (The Angry Young Man)", "Too Much Time On My Hands", and "Love Is The Ritual".
As other people have mentioned on here, Styx does have a similar sound to REO Speedwagon. That is because they play related forms of rock music, and they are both from Illinois, which explains the identical-sounding vocals.

A band that kicks ass! Especially with Lorelei and COME SAIL AWAY!
Styx is righteous, psychadelic, and amazingly flandiferous.

Much-maligned rock group, a guilty pleasure if ever there was one. One of their best albums, The Grand Illusion, is a loose concept album which takes the pursuit of fame as its theme and is best known for the anthemic 'Come Sail Away'.
"The Grand Illusion by Styx is an amazing album, and I'm not going to apologise for saying that."

Styx is the "boundary" between the living and the dead.
