Real Punk. Real West Coast.
— GTA V Website

Channel X is a radio station featured in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online that plays punk rock.

Description

Channel X's playlist consists primarily of punk rock from the 1970s and early 1980s. The station initially focused exclusively on Los Angeles-based acts, but the enhanced version also features some acts from Texas and Canada. It is hosted by seasoned punk veteran Keith Morris, current lead singer in Off! who previously sang for Black Flag and Circle Jerks. Keith often punctuates songs with tales of his younger days and bitter quips about modern society.

Channel X is likely based on SiriusXM channel Faction, although its name and frequency may be a tribute to 91X, an alternative rock station in Baja California known for being among the first radio stations to play punk rock.

It is one of the preferred stations of Trevor Philips, the Rednecks, and the Blaine County chapter of The Lost MC.

Trivia

  • Liberty City Hardcore is indirectly referenced by Keith as "the punk scene in Liberty City."
  • The station's stingers are read by a British man and woman, a nod to the London punk scene. Keith also directly references this scene in one comment; "there's a punk scene in London".
  • In some intros, Keith will introduce "My War" with "Black Flag, My War. I know these guys. You're not my friend!", a reference to his ongoing conflict with Black Flag after he left the band.
