INXS was formed in 1977 and released their self-titled debut album in 1980. They achieved worldwide fame with hits such as "New Sensation," ''Need you Tonight," and "Devil Inside."

Frontman Michael Hutchence died in 1997. In a statement Tuesday, the band paid tribute to their friend, saying: "We lived for each other in the trenches and we loved each other. It was the six of us against the world and then suddenly and inexplicably we were but five. "
