I love hair-nation. I don't listen to it as my primary station so I don't really get sick of repeats because... well... I don't ever notice them. I do notice that when I turn to this station they are playing something I can rock out to 85% of the time.

I like Hair Nation also.

Some people only listen to one or two channels for twelve hours a day, and then wonder why they hear repetition.

On the average day, I'll listen to a double-digit number of channels in several different genres---and don't get much repetition at all.

Variety is good. More people should try it.

Agree with that! Listening to the same station all day long, you are bound to hear the same song twice in a day.

I've heard some other Accept though...would guess it was on Hair nation as that's the channel I listen to most.

BTW Seismo, thanks for mentioning you'll be 40 soon...that's my fate come Sunday. Oh joy, can't wait. Ah screw it, I'm going to see Black Label Society again next month so what's it mean to be 40.

I plan on being the only guy in the nursing home listening to Zakk pinching them harmonics. If I live that long, that is....

Hey guys I am new here and just wanted to say I love Hair Nation. I listen to it during my 3 day trial and just got connected in my car today.. I saw Krokus in concert this past Thursday and Motley Crue 2 days before that. I am into Hair Bands and Classic Rock which I see there's several of those. What is Buzzaw and Octane? Some heavy rock I am not into or some alternative but some I like. I also had the Accept Tape with Balls To The Walls that's one of my favorite songs. We have a local band here in town that does all 80's Rock there great. But anyway I had an MP3 CD player in my car and I have all my music on CD's but sometimes after work at night I want a different type of music for my ride home and it's dark and hard to search for the right CD. So Sirius is the best thing for me. But since I just got it today I haven't gotten to really listen to much..

I went ahead and replaced my whole car stereo and bought a Kenwood which still will do my MP3's. But I will probably never listen to the radio again. I need to go through and pick out which channels I want for my presets.. My CD player came with a remote so I am assuming if I know a channel number I can punch in the numbers to go right there.. My theory is I love music and if i have Hair Nation on all day one day and a song plays again that I don't want to hear I'll switch to another channel then go back. I could hear Balls all day hee hee.. I like Restless and Wild also and Fast As A Shark they were on my Accept tape.

I need a small card with all the channel names and numbers. Rose

Welcome to Sirius and welcome to the great channel of Hair Nation.

My original post was asking about HN and now that I have purchased Sirius gear and now listen to Hair Nation about 8 hours a day, I dont get tired of this channel. Its the music l enjoy listening too. Almost every song I "crank it up" and start jamming to.

Great format...

Default Hair Nation

I love Hair Nation also and could listen to it all day.. I am listening on line now checking out all the different staions trying to deicde what my presets will be and in what order with HN of course being #1. I am going out to my car now to play with my new stereo and set my presets. I guess the remote will come in handy if I want to change channels to a high onelike 99 or something. When it shows on Sirius website like programming and it says Sheryl Crow 6pm tonight it doesn't list a channel number? Is there a number just for special programming? Is there anywhere I can print out a small listing of the channels. I printed this one out but it's a whole printer page but for now I wil keep it in my car.

Actually, on the FM dial, Classic Rock stations will add new songs from Classic Rock artists like Tom Petty and The Rolling Stones so to some degree, yes I would expect a station like Hair Nation to add a new song by a relevant artist....and they have in the past with Gene Simmons and with Black Label Society. I consider both of those artists to be relevant to the 80's metal/hair metal...

HN playlist is very tight in my opinion and this has been hashed out so many times in the last two years on this forum that there is no point in discussing it again...it just boils down to personal taste and my taste prefers The Boneyard.

I'd love to hear "London Leather Boys" or "Dogs on Leads" or even "Screaming For a Love Bite"

Let me know when you start to hear Elvis sing new songs on his channel, then I will agree. Otherwise deeper cut playlist would be "non main stream" for this particular format and so the Boneyard would suit you...

But yes, I agree its personal taste.

The main difference is that Elvis is dead and can't make new music. Outside of Jimi Hendrix, who has posthumously released many more albums than he did when he was alive, it's pretty hard to create new music from the grave

Many of these 80's rock bands are still around and making good music today. They don't need to overload the playlist with these new songs like XM's Boneyard does, but if an 80's band puts out a good new song, it would be nice to hear it once in a while just to know that these guys are still out there. This is definitely a personal preference though, so I'm sure that many people would agree with you as well and not want to hear these new songs.

My Elvis statement is what you exactly stated with being dead. And so are the 80's and the music during that time. That was my point. You cant create new music from the 80's. So Hair Nation is what it is, Classic Rock from the 80's to early 90's. Thats its format.

Maybe people are looking for a different format, one that plays todays Main Stream Rock mixed with yesturdays Main Stream Rock. Looking over Sirius's music list I dont see a channel that is dedicated in playing todays Rock. Most of todays Rock is classified as "Alternative Rock." The Spectrum plays Adult Album Rock. So maybe this channel would be considered "new rock."

But I agree with you. Many of the 80's main stream rock bands are coming out with new music. Just wonder which channel Sirius would carry these on and how to define them, Pop, Alternative, Rock? Doesn't belong in a 80's Classic format channel though.

Hair nation is cool, wish the would play some deeper cuts from bands like Accept, Y & T, Krokus, etc. But I only punch in and out and don't listen all day like I do to other channels. If you like hair nations, you will like Buzzsaw.

I monitored the playlist of Sirius for two months before joining. If accept and Iron maiden and stuff that goes a little deeper is what one is after than Buzzsaw is the place. Sirius has a flavor for everybody.
