Kix is an American glam metal band who achieved its popularity in the late 1980s and early 1990s. They were considered one of Maryland's top cover bands prior to their signing with Atlantic Records in 1981. Though considered by many to be glam metal, the bands pop-metal style drew inspiration from bubblegum pop and new wave as well as hard rock.
In 1981, they released their self-titled debut album, Kix, featuring "Atomic Bombs", "Heartache", "Contrary Mary", "The Itch", and "The Kid". "Love at First Sight" instantly became a concert favorite. "Kix Are for Kids" creatively merged the name of the band with two popular cereals of the 1960s and 1970s, Kix and the Trix Rabbit. "Yeah, Yeah, Yeah" became the band's most popular concert song, always with a unique ad-lib performance by lead vocalist Steve Whiteman. With this album, the rock and roll style of Kix was established.
Queensrÿche first burst onto the music scene in 1982 with the release of their self-titled 4 song EP "Queensrÿche". They very quickly gained international recognition and performed to sold out audiences around the world. With the follow up first full length album "The Warning" in 1984, and the ground breaking 1986 release of "Rage For Order", Queensrÿche continued to prove their worldwide dominance as one of the most respected and creative bands of the 80's.
