@rbeach88 you are correct.
Greatest band of the 70's .Their album EQUINOX can't be matched for pure 70's Rock !!!

Styx is a name of one of the rivers in hades in greek mythology, I think.
What the hell is the unemployment line??
I am too much of a wimp to do physical, blue collar work yet i have always liked this song a lot.
Actually they chose the name Styx because it was the only one that no band members hated. And it's the Egyptian one.
Love this song!!! So awesome and even better live!!!!!
I love Styx especially Mr. Roboto and Renegade
Brings back memories
Drunk on blüt now f**king awesome
STYX! OH YEAH! DEFINITELY NOT A CHARITY CASE!

Awesome Song
@ Tommy Jackson, it is not only in Dantes Inferno, but in the greek/Roman myths. Styx was a river which if you entered, it gave you near invinibility whereverthe water touched, ie, Achilles.
Only those who have been there can attest to the truth of the lyrics. Should be the official anthem of Michigan.
a group singing about whats happining now from way back
Great song from a great band. With out a doubt one of the best side B songs Styx ever came out with.
actually styx is the river that runs through hell in dante's inferno

i guess hell and chicago are reaaly one in the same though

I hate Styx, except for this song. I saw a live (taped) performance of this song on VHI Classics and I was hooked. Why is the blond guitarist smiling like a maniac? He does have great teeth.
a good song, but propbably not even in their top ten
This is my favorite Styx song, and probably one of the best rock songs ever made. had to add that.

Unless you're from the Chicago area or a die hard Styx nut you probably wouldn't know they got their name from a little known river running through the windy city. This song, Come Sail Away and Too Much Time On My Hands (which they currently have) their top 3.

I was reading Upton Sinclair's "The Jungle" waiting for Pandora to load, and this song came up - they fit really well together.

Odd choice of subject.
This is a great song.
