velocity, why don't you like XM? what kind of music do you listen to?
I posted this in another thread, so I just copy/pasted it
All I have to say is that I am EXTREMELY disappointed in XM's programming. They don't have any stations that I can listen to for an extended amount of time because after one good song, they'll play one I hate.
Here's a couple examples...
Depending on what kind of mood I am in, the kinds of music I usually listen to is either 80s music, current pop stuff, rap, or hard/classic rock.
XM has a station called "20 on 20" - which is a reloading, interractive countdown on the top 20 songs as voted by listeners. You'd think that this would be really cutting edge, right? Well... it isn't. I can still hear songs like "JoJo - 'leave'" on there... which I heard back in March on my way to Spring Break in Florida. I can turn on my local radio stations and hear fresh, new music. I've learned commercials are a small price to pay for songs I want to hear.
XM's 80's station plays - "the hits you don't remember". Why they don't play the hits that I DO remember baffles me. It's always some lame, real electronic, bad 80's song. Never anything I want to hear. Listen to Sirius's 80's station... it's a world of difference.
XM has no good mix of hard rock/hard classic rock. The "Boneyard" is pretty close, but usually no new songs. It's either old classic rock, or new acid satan rock. Why no mix?
Xm has no good mix of rap/hip-hop. Their "urban" stations are either hip-hop and R&B, or horribly hardcore gangbanging degenerate rap. When I listen to a rap station, I want to hear good beats, good rhythms... the hardcore rap station is just noise and swearing, and "the City" plays far too many slow songs.
How can I have 150 channels at my disposal and not find something I can listen to for longer than 5 minutes at a time???? It's horribly annoying.
I really wish I had gone with Sirius.
