WHITE HOUSE (CNN) - It's a smaller stage than they're use to standing on but the band Styx stopped by the White House briefing room Monday and posed for pictures behind the podium as well as with reporters who are fans of the group.
A small crowd of journo-groupies trailed the group as they had a look at the briefing room and other press work spaces while meeting with reporters, producers, and photojournalists.
The band, with hits including Mr. Roboto and Come Sail Away, is in town for a show in the DC area but stopped by the White House Monday to get a quick tour.
Do I even have to say it? Don't blame me. I voted for McCain.
What about the Alliance between all these Idi8otic Kings and Queens arouhnd the world. You think they are not also taking notice about Iran?
Hits including Mr. Roboto? They have about 30 other songs that are better known. At least you spelled their name right.
Being from Illinois, maybe Obama can give them some sort of job in his administration, they are as qualified as most of the others he has appointed.
Awesome! Some of the best music ever produced was performed by Styx!! LOVE that music!!
Can someone explain why... with EVERYTHING going on in the world today that demands attention... some has been band from the 70's is visiting the White House??
Geez this president is a joke. Enough of the Hollywood idiots! The majority of Hollywood barely graduated High School!!
This country is in SERIOUS trouble!
The Republicans will clean up yet another Democratic mess in 4 yrs... Thank GOD!
Oh THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU CNN for reporting this hard hitting news. Now I can sleep well at night and not worry about a thing.
Geeez, give me a freakin break. All the trouble going on in this country and around the world and CNN sees fit to report on this. Folks, we are in major trouble in this country so God help us ALL because there are very few in government that are capable.

First of all, where do you get this statistic?
Second of all, can you see your appendix from where your head is at? If you don't see the Republican mess all around you, you must be blind.
You haters suck. we cant help it if our president is so cool everyone wants to see him, even old 70's arena bands that really rocked in their day.
if you dont like it why dont you go read your bible or something.....
the fourth branch, no way
CNN you are completely worthless
Ha,ha,ha Another Hollywood friend, better start thinking about the people who elected you. What a joke we have !
Anyone who bashes this story is not only unpatriotic, but clearly has stunted emotional growth, jealous as a 2 year old. Rock on Styx and President Obama. Too bad the only people with too much time on their hands are rude republicans.
proclaiming you voted for mccain to make scence is laughable! Sometimes it's better to say nothing.
