Styx is a phenomenally popular art rock band whose Come Sail Away was notably used in an episode of adult-oriented animated comedy South Park. No relation to earlier band Butch Engle and the Styx. Renegade is noted for its funk-like riff. The song Mr. Roboto features a mention to the mythological "Kilroy" graffiti cartoon character and is off of the album Kilroy Was Here, named after the caption accompanying the character. Most of their albums have gone at least gold. Live album Return to Paradise also went gold. Two gold compilations while Styx Greatest Hits went double platinum. Numerous hit singles.

They were named after the river in the Greek underworld.
