Default Here's A Channel I Would Like To See

We have KICK ass rock stations...it's true, it's true, but the ONE thing I don't get is: How come we don't have any grunge stations? I love Hair Nation and indeed it has to be one of my favorite stations on here but how I would love to hear some early Alice in Chains or Nirvana. I hear some of it on the Pulse but other then that...nothing.

It's a tad lame if you ask me. I think they could merge a few channels to fit this in.

Funny, I asked a friend of mine the other day if Sirius had a grunge station I was unaware of.

As she pointed out, the grunge movement was a rather short fad. Even New Wave lasted longer. There were very few stand-outs. Nirvana, Bush, Alice In Chains. AIC, borders between grunge and metal. I don't think they're really grunge. They just happened to come out of Seatle around the same time as Nirvana and others.

I think a grunge channel would result in Nirvana being played 20 times a day. Maybe not a bad thing at first, but, it'd get old after a while.

That's is a cool idea,they could also have Mad Season,Mother love bone,Temple of the dog,ect on there,however I do agree certain bands would be overplayed unless it was a (90's)rock kind of channel with Primus,STP,Melvins,Todies,Ect to mix it up a little.....

Between alt nation and octane, it feels like I hear Nirvana 20 times a day. Don't get me wrong, I love Nirvana, but the repetition on those two channels gets ridiculous.

Ok well Sirius in my mind should at least have another alternative station because their current one sucks. They need one that plays grunge and similar types of alternative, cause their alt channel just plays shitty late 90s alt rock. if sirius had more diverse rock they wouldnt have 1 billion dollar debt

Now that's just funny.

I agree in that a grunge channel might not be the best thing, but a 90's only station would be great. The current "90's and today" channel sucks.

A 90s alt-rock station sounds good, but then, we'd be seeing crap like Dave Matthews, The Wallflowers and the Lillith Fair movement dumped into the playlist.

True, the 90s had lots of great alt-rock, but it did have its cancers.

I would *LOVE* to see a grunge station. Most of my teenage years were spent listening to grunge. I was disapointed when I realized there wasn't a station dedicated to this very popular genre.

Just dump most of it into the pulse and get rid of the "Now" stuff. We don't need two stations playing top forty music. It don't want a great channel to become too much of a hit or miss.

Oh yes, the music that killed my Hair Band Format...

But you know, a channel that does play the Stone Temple Pilots, Bush, Alice in Chains, Temple of the Dog, Pearl Jam, DMB, Red Hot Chilly Peppers, Rage Against the Machine, would be nice.

This format was hot in the early 90's with college stations.

All they need to do is to add a PUNK station like XM's Fungus.

On Sirius Punk Planet they could play old school punk, new punk, hardcore, ska, grunge, etc.

It would be the best rock station on the dial.

The fact that they have no punk channel is killing me. If it wasn't for Stern, I'd have XM for Fungus.

I agree that Sirius needs a punk station but I have tried XM and Fungus is just too obscure for me. I like all kinds of punk but they seem to play the crappiest tracks off albums and I have no doubt that Sirius would do a better job.

Octane plays that stuff all the time.
