Man, I was really digging these two stations and now within 2 days both are gone. I was considering trying to wrangle XM for a price break on a yearly sign up when my 3 months are gone, now not so much =(

The new Boneyard pretty much played AC/DC at least once an hour.


Single artist stations are why I'm an ex-subscriber.

Boneyard blows. Buzzsaw was cool about 75% of the time. I'm not going to renew when my sub is up. The merger screwed up everything. SiriusXM will be lucky if they're still in business by the time Stern's contract is up.

Well it's all about them doing a single artist station right.


With Springsteen ( I think the first run was better by the way) you at least get:


Outtakes, alt versions, and live concerts.


With Ac/Dc you didn't get anything like that, not sure on the Zep station.


I am very happy that boneyard is back, check out Eddie Trunk's show.

Clever.



But the same could be said for half of all the other music stations, too. Especially any one that plays "older" music.


And that goes for both services when they were separate.

This has nothing to do with older music, I'm referring to the widely accepted notion that Sirius XM received money from AC/DC and Led Zep label management to put these stations on to promote upcoming releases. It was payola ca. 2008.

I really miss the AC/DC. I work at night and sometimes that music just changed the night from dragging to rockin and rollin

Ah, OK. I thought you were just referring to the highly commercial nature of that music.


Yes, I'm familiar with LZ's "tactics" and stunts - I didn't know AC/DC was that way, too, though.

Well they did release their last album as a Wal-Mart exclusive and also managed to strong arm Harmonix into doing the same with their AC/DC Rock Band game/track pack.

I have Sirius and at first the AC/DC channel was cool, but got tired pretty quickly. Then they played the new stuff which I really don't like. I prefered the Punk channel and wish it would return.


Well, I any many other people complained when the channels changed so keep hammering them if you don't like the channels. At least we got oldschool back.

I love both Zep & AC/DC but I'm glad their gone. They take up needed bandwith. If I want to listen to a single artist I can use my Ipod. What's the point? Unlike others I think Boneyard is a good mix & and am especially thrilled to have Eddie Trunk bank Monday nights.

You're naive if you think that bandwith is actually being given back to the remaining channels.

Perhaps I phrased it wrong because both of those channels were taken up by others that were on hiatus (i.e. Boneyard came back on line when AC/DC left). What I meant by "needed bandwidth" was for other stations that were more diverse. In any case I'm glad two specialized channels are now gone.
