Good fucking lord!!!!! :mad: :mad: If I hear any more Evanescance or that putridly sugary Hoobastank song again, I might start blowing up corperate buildings. I just want to hear some new, different music! :mad:

I think things are worse now then they ever were for access to musical diversity and originality. Even worse then the dark days in the early 60s with the rigorous playlists and horrendous payola.

Anyone know of some decent internet radio stations that have good connections? I've come across a few, but most of them have poor bandwiths or play crappy garage punk bands. There's a pretty good one on RadioAid.com (they used to be called ClearChannelSucks.com ;) ).

I'm sick of chains, media congloms, WalMart, Petroleum Corps and everything the "free market" has become.

www.shoutcast.com

not the cream of the crop for all genres but it's a good site to station hop.

That's why I got XM.
Uber, do you have iTunes? There are some great streaming radio stations there.
