If you prefer rock music with a message, Revolution plays today's most uplifting, kief affirming faith-based rock music.

I'm not as familiar with this genre, but liked what I heard. Of the 5 or songs that I've heard so far, I liked them all. So it would be a preset but Spirit 66 is already a preset, so this is just one up from there.

I like what I have been hearing so far, both Spirit and Revolution are showing up on my Sportster in the "Country" category. Lets hope they can fix this.

It shows up as Country/Christian on my radio, so I'm thinking that they didn't plan on adding a separate category. I agree though, I would like to see it in a separate category.

Default Evanesence on Revolution

I just took a look at the Revolution page on Sirius.com and one of the bands that it features is Evanesence. Are they a band that plays Chrisitan music or do they just belong to the Christian faith? I love Evanesence but was caught off guard by this.

Later,
Bill

Evanesence was marketed heavily to the Christian community at the beginning of their career. Their Cd's were sold in Christian bookstores etc. Over time Evanesence decided to distance them selves from the Christian market.

This channel is definitely and interesting surprise. I stopped on it thinking I would sample and move on and ended up on there for a while. This may be a huge channel for Sirius.

It's been really hit and miss for me. I heard a tune by Switchfoot I liked, and I like Thousand Foot Krutch, but I can really do without bands like Stryper and Creed. This will be something I only occasionally tune into, but definitely not a preset.

I can say that Im happy they are mixing it up on this channel. I was hoping they would throw in some Christian metal and one of the first songs I heard sounding like something that could have been played on Hard Attack! Cool...

It's a mix between Hard Attack, Octane, and Alt Nation only the artists would rather give you a hug instead of a punch in the face.

I like it alot

Exactly dude. And very funny way of putting it. Although metal dudes don't really want to punch you in the face, unless you steal their girlfriend or piss them off, then they flip out and go Ninja and cut off heads.

I just want to say way to go Sirius! Youve out done yourself this time. I have fallen in love with Revolution. After listening to it all day, I can say it is one of the best if not the best Christian Rock mix I have ever heard. I predict this channel will quickly gain in popularity. As people try it out they will grow to love it, even those who dont consider themselves Christians.

I am a proud member of the Denis Leary Lapsed Catholic Church (That pizza and beer penance just did it for me) but grew up on the christian music of the the late 80's early 90's as "secular" music wasn't allowed in my house. So we had Stryper, Amy Grant, Michael W. Smith (who is an AMAZING artist btw), etc, but haven't really been back to this genre since college. While some of it is the typical preachy "crap" (yes I use that term loosely. If you are offended, too bad) some of the other things on this channel are amazing and really suprised me. I'm a "little bit harder than Octane, but not quite Hard Attack" sort of listener and Revolution seems so far to hit that. For instance, the band Flyleaf is on as I type this. Very cool sound, lyrics not over the top, just the kind of stuff I could actually listen to. Needless to say that I was very suprised by this channel. Probably won't make it to any presets (I don't use presets really), but it has captured my interest. I was ready to write this channel off honestly, but I figured I would at least give it a listen (I did with Shuffle and CoffeeHouse.. couldn't get much worse than those two honestly)
So I guess in the end,
