I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this channel. It plays a wider range of hard rock than I expected, including much from the '90s that I'm more familiar with. I have decided to add it to my presets.

My A band is reserved for my rock channels, and I already have 10 rock channels that I don't want to drop. So Octane will become my B1 selection, moving Symphony Hall to B2, and dropping Standard Time.

octane was a pretty good channel. Programmed similar to the glory days of WXRK and Q104.3 back in the day when the station started out. Sometimes it gets a little mellow considering the type of music its supposed to play but I can live with it. Definatly a preset worthy channel.

Octane is one of my favorite channes and is one of my presets. Octane plays a style of hard rock that XM Radio does not play..at least not very well from what I can tell.

Not really my kind of channel. I heard some groups I liked, Alien Ant Farm and Incubus. But, some of the stuff was just a bit too hard for me. There are probably too many other good channels for me to come back here often.

I liked this channel quite a bit more than I thought I would, and it's a preset now.

Interesting station. I wasn't sure exactly the type of music they played and I gave it a couple of solid chunks of listens over the past couple of weeks. I did enjoy a lot of what I heard, but some of it was a bit too hard (and reminded me of Hard Attack). I think I will add this to a C pre-set. i will be back from time to time.

I agree, I love the hard rock music but the same repeating songs day after day wears on me. Listen for 2 days straight and I guarantee you will hear the same Rage/Tool/Primus songs from the previous day. This is one area where Sirius needs to improve substantially. 100's of hard rock songs but they play the same thing, day in, day out, just like FM. My .02.
