Rock Star:INXS - Worst idea ever!

From the Rockstar about page:
The Australian-based INXS has played over 4,000 live shows, sold over 30 million albums, and had No. 1 hit singles on four different continents before the tragic death of lead singer Michael Hutchence. Now, one talented new artist will become INXS' frontman or woman, record an album with the band and lead its next worldwide tour.
Good lord! Shouldn't they at least rename the band or something?

Fresh bubblegum on the way

Check out 20-year-old twins The Veronicas from Brisbane, Australia who play rock-styled pop. Their first single "Forever" is slated for release this summer and is taken from their debut album that will come out on Sire/Warner in October. The song is a spunky slice of teen powerpop that will be welcomed by fans of Pink, Avril and Kelly Clarkson.
