I do enjoy listening to Hair Nation and have it as a preset. I crew up listening some of these bands in the late '80s, mainly early '90s.

Hair Nation is one of my presets. I was very pleased to find out that Sirius had a channel like this when I first got Sirius. I was familiar with about half of the songs at first, and have gotten to know and like some more since. I like the mixture of rock songs and rock ballads.

I always get the feeling that this would be one of the top preset channels of most of the people that I went to school with in the 80's and early 90's.

It's always a party on Hair Nation.

I have Hair Nation as a "B" preset. I am a big "decade channel" listener, and sometimes the pop tunes (Tiffany, Debbie Gibson, etc.) get on my nerves...Sometimes you just need to rock out. Tight playlist, but I like the guitar show at 5:00 PM.
Looking for help on Sirius/XM??

I liked this station a lot more than I thought I would. I'm in the age group that listened to this music in middle school and the first part of high school. It made a good driving station as well as a fun station to crank up on my home unit on Saturday afternoon. I'm thinking that repeats might be a problem on this station, however. This is a fairly narrow niche of music and I heard quite a few repeats in the hours I listened this week.

I'll be back from time to time.

About the only regular bands they play on this channel that I like are Guns N Roses and Def Leppard. As for the bulk of the hair bands, I didn't care for them in 1988 and I still don't. Although I heard a lot of GNR, it's not worth sitting through the Skid Row, Poison, etc.

I don't listen regularly, it's fun music to listen to sometimes, though. I definitely tended more towards alternative and dance stuff than this back then.

This is a good channel. I listened yesterday morning, but for some reason, there was a mess up in to recording. The DJ would say that they were going to play an Ozzy song, and a Kiss song would come up. That happened again with a Europe song...

I'm not into this music anymore. I grow up listening to this type of music, but I really don't listen to it anymore. Of the songs that were played in the hour, about half were songs I've never heard before.

Good stuff. I'll listen every once in a while...

This is probably my favorite station on Sirius. I grew up listening to this music and still love it to this day. Sure the playlist isn't the deepest, but who cares? I certainly don't when it comes to this music! long live Hair Nation!
