    New "popular" music sucks - there's still a lot of good stuff out there, you just don't hear it on commercial radio or MTV.

    I love Pandora - I've discovered a lot of great music I would have never heard on the radio. Not even on Sirius.

    Yea, there really is a lot of good music around. You just have to look for it. It is not as easy to find.

    Thankfully, since you do have to do a bit of digging, the good music is not as easily exhausted and commodified.

    I've discovered quite a few bands on Sirius that I've grown to love thanks to a lot of long drives with the remote in my hand and staying away from the mainstream channels.

    Pandora just doesn't get me. Every time I tell it what I like it suggests a bunch of shit that I hate.

    Although I have to admit, I like that Lorde song. I shouldn't like it but I find myself enjoying it. I guess it's refreshing to hear a pop song that isn't overproduced and auto-tuned.

    I rarely hit like or dislike on pandora, I just take the songs as they come. I listen as I work so I can't be bothered.

    What Sirius rock channels do you recommend?

    I just go up and down with my remote and stop on songs that sound interesting. I would have to know what you're into. I like a little of pretty much every genre. I've found some good stuff on Outlaw Country but I don't like pop country. Also the Loft plays an eclectic mix.

    I like that they have DJs that play whatever they want so you can almost feel their moods. If they play something you like, chances are they will play 3 or 4 good songs in a row that you may not know but will enjoy.

    also, the Sirius app has way more channels than the satellite.
