I'm pretty sure that the cheap shot at the Christian community with channel dedicated to such awful music will be accounted as a failure at the next review and "The Revolution" will be over.
You are full of crap. Revolution will be here to stay. Dude if this music is so bad then why is it gaining in popularity? And why is the Torch popular on XM? PLEASE think before you type. If you dont like it fine...that doesnt make everyone not like it. I think country music is crap but a lot of people like it.

We'll have to wait and see what happens. As to why Christian rock is gaining popularity (I'll have to take your word on this, I haven't had the nerve to listen to this music for more than 10 minutes in a row, let alone read statistics about it), my suggestion is that more and more parents and religious schools are buying christian music CDs with the hopes that the children will switch from Marylin Manson

To quote a certain somebody:

"YOU AREN'T THE ONLY CUSTOMER." You are very naive in thinking Revolution will always be a permanent fixture at SIRIUS. Just because YOU have a passion for this channel does not necessarily mean the entire Christian community will flock to it. In fact, the channel hasn't even begun yet and you're making the assumption that you'll be an avid listener. Whose to say that the playlist will suit your tastes?

If the powers that be deem Revolution unworthy, don't think for one second that they will hesitate to yank it and replace it with Rabbi Mike's Super Funky Yiddish Dance Remixes. No channel is safe.

I am not a fan of religious programming by any means, however other folks are welcome to it.

If it isn't profitable for sat radio, then it will be disposed of.

Live and let live!

That would probably be great!

At the danger of sounding like I’m kidding, I gotta say - Don’t go knocking yiddish dance music. Klezmer rocks. Go listen to some tunes by The Klezmatics, The New Orleans Klezmer Allstars, etc. It’s good time party music that’s better than any rock that Sirius ever played or will ever play.

Me too DAB. I have already "sold" several people who will be getting Sirius when the new lineup starts specifically because of the Christian Rock channel.

Oooops! I wrote “Open your mind and your ass will follow”. The word “Open” should be replaced with “Free”. LOL.

Klezmer...that's the word I was looking for! Yeah, I believe you because I've heard it in the movie "Dummy" with Adrien Brody and it's pretty good. Milla (Resident Evil) Jovovich is a punk rocker in the film who learns to play Klezmer music for the wedding at the end. I agree, I'd much rather get it instead of what we'll be getting.

Great movie, BTW.

OH that was rich! ROTFLOL!!!

One thing we know for sure at this time is Christian Rock is here and there are many channels that won't be. The ones that won't be more than likely won't be back based on Sirius history over the last 3 years. The only exception is Spa73 which of course was originally Soundscapes. I think the only reason we got a new age channel back is because XM has continue Audiovision as well as beautiful music with Sunny and Sirius simply had nothing like either one of them. I also think that this was a highly requested channel in survey's, calls to customer support as well as write ins. If you look through the forum since its removal there has always been a steady flow of threads requesting this type genre.

So let me get this straight. you are willing to pay for Shade 45 which is dedicated to man who writes lyrics like this:
Song: Just Don't Give A Fuck
Chorus:

So when you see me on your block with two glocks
Screamin _Fuck the World_ like Tupac
I just don't give a fuuuuuck!!
Talkin that shit behind my back, dirty mackin
tellin your boys that I'm on crack
I just don't give a fuuuuuck!!
So put my tape back on the rack
Go run and tell your friends my shit is wack
I just don't give a fuuuuuck!!
But see me on the street and duck
Cause you gon' get stuck, stoned, and snuffed
Cause I just don't give a fuuuuuck!!


Song: Still Don't Give a Fuck

Chorus:

For all the weed that I've smoked - yo this blunt's for you
To all the people I've offended - yeah fuck you too!
To all the friends I used to have - yo I miss my past
But the rest of you assholes can KISS MY ASS
For all the drugs that I've done - yo I'm still gon' do
To all the people I've offended - yeah fuck you too!
For everytime I reminisce - yo I miss my past
But I still don't give a fuck, y'all can KISS MY ASS

Song: Kill You

They said I can't rap about bein broke no more
They ain't say I can't rap about coke no more
(AHHH!) Slut, you think I won't choke no whore
til the vocal cords don't work in her throat no more?!
(AHHH!) These motherfuckers are thinkin I'm playin
Thinkin I'm sayin the shit cause I'm thinkin it just to be sayin it
(AHHH!) Put your hands down bitch, I ain't gon' shoot you
I'ma pull +YOU+ to this bullet, and put it through you
(AHHH!) Shut up slut, you're causin too much chaos
Just bend over and take it like a slut, okay Ma?
"Oh, now he's raping his own mother, abusing a whore,
snorting coke, and we gave him the Rolling Stone cover?"
You god damn right BITCH, and now it's too late
I'm triple platinum and tragedies happen in two states
I invented violence, you vile venomous volatile bitches
vain Vicadin, vrinnn Vrinnn, VRINNN! {*chainsaw revs up*}
Texas Chainsaw, left his brains all
danglin from his neck, while his head barely hangs on
Blood, guts, guns, cuts
Knives, lives, wives, nuns, sluts

Chorus: Eminem

Bitch I'ma kill you! You don't wanna fuck with me
Girls neither - you ain't nuttin but a slut to me
Bitch I'ma kill you! You ain't got the balls to beef
We ain't gon' never stop beefin I don't squash the beef
You better kill me! I'ma be another rapper dead
for poppin off at the mouth with shit I shouldn'ta said
But when they kill me - I'm bringin the world with me
Bitches too! You ain't nuttin but a girl to me
.. I said you don't, wanna fuck with Shady (cause why?)
Cause Shady, will fuckin kill you (ah-haha)
I said you don't, wanna fuck with Shady (why?)
Cause Shady, will fuckin kill you..



but you are not willing to pay for music that has lyrics like this:

DJ MAJ
SONG: UNDER PRESSURE
Chorus

living it up under pressure
giving it all the game called life
gotta be true to the letter
cause if I want to receive
giving love is the key

Verse 2

johnny’s got a family to feed
how can he supply all their needs
the job he has doesn’t pay enough
things have gotten a little rough now he’s
had to get another job his children won’t ever see their pops
now he’s out there struggling at the corner
store out there hustling should he

keep on doing what he’s doing
a new job he’s pursuing
be the man he’s created to be his family needs him around
hit is knees and start praying
please hear what i’m saying

another day in the life of a person like me and you ooh ooh oooh

Chorus

Rap

he did it legitimate with no concocting
family man with 2 seeds and stock option and options
past what the mind can grasp occupation’s task
giving what ever he’s asking she
presents the offer but he simply declines it
naiveté? or real man with grand plan
revelation of the 7th command and pierced hands
contrary to the popular stands of lets dance
he plans to raise a generation of babies on
morals of grand momma and boogie to steve wonder
cause God blessed the child with soul claps and thunder
escape from every plunder when pressure is what we’re under

Chorus

Living under pressure got to give it to
this game called life (repeat 3x)


Title: Where Were You
Artist: KJ-52

Lyrics: daddy why did u do that to mommy?
you said if we hit somebody we're suppose to say sorry
but you never say sorry daddy you yell now
why did you tell that man that mommy just fell down
mommy didnt fall down daddy's lying
mommy why are you always sad and always crying?
daddy why are you always mad you always fighting?
why do you always say im bad even when im trying?
no i dont want to go to my room
i dont want to go to bed now i want to be with you
i dont want to daddy it's to early
i didnt mean it daddy im sorry im sorry
i promise i'll never say that again
im sorry daddy please dont hit me again
please i'll be a good boy now
dont put me in the room please dont turn the lights out
(what did i do?
im sorry daddy that's all i want to say to you)
CHORUS
where?where were you? just when i needed you
daddy where were you
where?where were you?just when i needed you
mommy where were you
(golden child)
what up pops i aint got to tell you my heart is as hard
as a rock things have changed since i was the age six
yet some situations stay the same like the way
i conceal my pain growing up i'd swear
my name was every profane thing a man could say
i used to make excuses like you werent the one that hit her
it was just the liquor in ya my dad
the perfect example of hatred and why am i so bitter?
ya told me real men dont cry that was a lie
you dont relize what goes on inside of my mind
as time passed my heart ran cold my emotions froze
lost track of the bruises and the broken bones
just once wanted to hear that you loved me
wrap your arms around me and hug me yeah right
remember the first time i couldnt feel the pain
it was when grandma came and took me to church
where God releived the hurt and he knows it took work
but i forgave you he could save you but the question in
will you let him in it would be such a blessing
to see you as a changed man and holdin my mothers hand
CHORUS


Wow I think you are right! It seems those Christian lyrics are dangerous! They may prove to be a hurtful influence on those who would mistakenly tune in! I mean songs that talk about forgiveness, love, and challenge the listeners to live a moral life should be avoided at all cost. There should be no room for channels that have such a positive message! It may confuse many people.


It is your money; so if you have no desire to pay for such unbelievably positive music, then by all means cancel your subscription. Please let me know when you do so I can get another subscription to replace yours. I would like to show my support to Sirius for providing music with a positive message to all of us dumb people who desire that kind of thing.

Personally i would rather hear the Fuck you song over the save me song.

I think religion should be in the hearts of men, not pipeing out of you stereo.

I doubt there is a huge demand for this type of station.

But, I bet Sirius thought there was.

We know how Christians like to spam organizations. Wacko groups like the Family Research Council etc etc have gotten TV shows taken off the air and have forced FCC investigations just through spamming.
