Default Question For Dual Subs....

Would you agree that Squizz is a better rock station than Octane? There are probably more things that I like about Sirius over XM, but when it comes to rock I think that Squizz wins hands down IMO. Octane sounds too much like my local rock station and a lot of the songs they play are the ones that fm just drilled to the ground, while squizz plays a lot more cutting edge artists that I've never heard of before. Anyone else feel this way too?

Yeah Squizz is 100 times better, Hey wait a minute !!!! I thought XM only played OBSCURE SHIT NOONE EVER HEARD OF ..... Disturbed, Alice In Chains, Taproot, AFI, Audioslave, Evanescence, Breaking Benjamin, Crossfade, those are some REALLY OBSCURE bands huh!!!! As a dual sub I find it funny that new music I heard on Squizz months ago is now starting to be played on Octane and some of those bands are ..... OMG ARE YOU READY ????? NEW BANDS !!!!! AHHHHHHHHHHHH god forbid they play anything but the STP greatest hits album or the AIC greatest hits album.... So it's nice to see Octane play a better variety but they still have some catching up to do but both are good in their own respective ways, Squizz just plays a much better mix.... I find Octane is kind of a mix between the harder side of Lucy and Squizz and it isn't as heavy as Squizz at times... Squizz plays stuff like Atreyu, Killswitch Engage, Shadows Fall, Deftones and I don't recall hearing those on Octane very often, if ever... Sirius tends to play Atreyu, Killswitch Engage, Shadows Fall, Deftones on HardAttak only and IMO some of those bands especially Atreyu and the Deftones have stuff that belongs on Octane....

I have 4 XM radios and 1 Sirius OEM in my 06 Freightliner Columbia big rig.. So yes, I am a dual sub.. I'm not a fan of one or the other they both need to pull their heads out of their asses and give the customer what they want... Sorry in advance if I might offend some of the fanboys with some of the comments above but It gets tiring hearing the same B.S. especially from people who have no experience with one or the other just what they read .....
