Another Way to Help Haiti... "Don't Change" a Thing

Even though it misrepresents a bunch of funky Australian pub-rockers as a New Wave band, "Don't Change," from 1982's Shabooh Shoobah, broke INXS on U.S. college radio long before "What You Need" or "Need You Tonight." It's always been one of Rocks Off's favorites, from a group that has given us many. ("Original Sin," anyone? "Beautiful Girl"?)

In honor of late singer Michael Hutchence's 50th birthday, which would have been this Friday, fans in several countries have started a campaign to push "Don't Change" to No. 1. INXS is donating the sales proceeds to the Red Cross' Haitian relief efforts.
