This is what I said before about Sirius being a geneous when HAND PICKING their music that FITS that channels format.

They are very careful. Unlike XM who just throws a thousand or so songs into a mixed bag of rocks and calls it the Boneyard and sets it on shuffle.

It drove me nuts hearing all the incompatible music on their channels.
Funny, someone over at Xmfan said that if you liked these channels, than you were not a hardcore fan. Amazing!

Many don't know their music like Sirius and us.

The Boneyard is for poseurs who like loud rock just cause it's from the mid-70s to the early-90s.

Buzzsaw and Hair Nation are for the true connoisseurs of loud rock.

And its nice that Sirius offers about 3 specific channels covering this time block for each rock format instead of throwing every rock song from the mid-70's to early-90's into one channel and calling it the Boneyard.

It's not the size of the playlist...

It's what you, er, do with it that matters.

"HAIR NATION: our playlist might be only three inches long, but, damn it, we can twirl it around... chicks dig that."

No duh! An overly long playlist in Hair Nation would reek. Like I was telling someone the other day, I'd hate to have to wait 2 days to hear something by Skid Row!

I gotta go with Buzzsaw, nice mix of music and other than the Vault, the only real classic rock stream I listen to on a regular basis.

Interesting comment. I enjoy Buzzsaw, but doesn't it technically match your description of Boneyard (not the "poseur" part, but the loud rock and time frame parts)? Sirius does keep a tight genre focus on certain rock stations, such as Hair Nation and the Classic Rewind/Vinyl combo. But Buzzsaw is essentially a mix of hard rock songs spanning the late 60's to early 90's, and many of the artists played on the station aren't artists that you'd expect to find on the same station (Hendrix, Zeppelin, Tom Petty, Ratt, Motley Crue, Judas Priest, Metallica, etc all are "hard rock" but have very different flavors). Buzzsaw is my #1 preset, and I like how all of these different artists' songs flow together, but it's proof that a station can have a pretty wide focus and still be enjoyable.

Not inferior if that is what one wants and Hair Nation is delivering exactly what I want.

So the main stream rock hits on Hair Nation, the Buzz with deeper cuts plus a bit broader rock format is sooooo awesome with both channels and the reason why I dumped Xm and got Sirius..

Rock on.
Well said! I agree completely!
