I like it, but I can't listen to it for too long, because eventually something will come on that I just can't stand.

How about adding another choice--"It's OK and I WILL listen again".

Virtually all of the people who voted that they hate it, are just pissed off over the assimilation of one of their favorite channels into other streams.

Shuffle is a good channel for when you're in an eclectic mood. Like virtually all the other channels, most wouldn't want to listen to it all the time.

That is exactly right. So the number who actually dis-like the channel for the programming is much lower.

Well. I am not particularly happy with the demise of Folktown BUT Super Shuffle is doing a fine job of sucking all on it's own. I gave it a second chance yesterday, and my opinion stands. I noticed it pulls heavily from Classic Rewind and the Decades channels - all channels that I can't stand to listen to. Yeah, it is kind of fun to listen to LL Cool Jay, Bob Dylan, and Frank Sinatra on one channel. But it's not worth having to listen to hours and hours of Billy Squire, Poison, and Whitesnake.

I like it for the surprise factor. You really don't know where it's going next

I've heard many songs I wouldn't have otherwise which is a good thing.

I think Super Shuffle is just OK. I think it plays too much old stuff. I would like to see some new hits mixed in from pop, rock, rap, dance and country. I was hoping super shuffle would cover hits of many genres new and old. But it seems to play just the classic hits. Hopefully improvement is coming.

This channel was not designed in my opinion to play a lot of currents, but in terms of newer music, you haven't listened long enough. I've seen new music by Modonna, Trisha Yearwood, Faith Hill, OutKast just to name a few. There is no doubt its geared to play the older stuff with a smaller amount of new stuff for good measure. I think this channel has already improved greatly from the first day it started. I personally have a hard time switching to other channels cause I've enjoyed it so much. The playlist is just amazing!

Wow, you're already talking about re-launching? Keep on keeping on brother. And I'll gladly buy TWO Hard Attack shirts if that can be done when you get back up and going. One for work, and one for leisure. Might even get a SuperShuffle too. You rock Jeff.

Actually, I've been listening to it quite a lot lately and my opinion remains the same. Its like a greatest hits compilation with only the "hits based" music being played.

It should be showcasing the variety of music that SIRIUS has to offer, but instead it continues to play only the "hits based" programming. SIRIUS already has a nasty reputation for only playing the big hits, and this channel only perpetuates that stereotype instead of playing the deeper tracks that SIRIUS also has to offer.

I won't be letting my non-sub friends hear this because it doesn't serve its intended purpose...its currently an embarrassment to listen to. I'll give it some more time and hopefully things will get better.

I'm having a tough time with this channel.

I'd like to vote that I enjoy it, but I hope it doesn't stay.

I think it's just more of the same for Sirius and definitely too hits oriented.

If it was the only station that I could EVER listen to it would be a great station, but I hear all of these songs TOO MUCH on other stations. I really feel they should have served a different niche. The only people that this channel will make happy is people that were already happy because it's just the same songs on another station. I don't think it would bring in any additional subscribers on it's own.

It seems Sirius is really gearing towards the white male 18-50 crowd with many other people being left out. Fortunately I'm a white male of 40, so I love Sirius but I could see where others would be disappointed.
