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. Similarly to LCHC, it seems to function as a time capsule to the development of the Californian punk and hardcore scene, with variances of crossover thrash, thrashcore, and post-hardcore on display. 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 one of the two intros to Black Flag's 1984 track "My War", he opens it 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.
    • It also seems the "You're not my friend!" line was, in fact, a splice taken from the intro dialogue to Frenzel Rhomb's deleted track "You Are Not My Friend". The waveforms of the audio track in question also suggest a splice was made.
  • On one of the two DJ intros to Fear's 1985 song "The Mouth Don't Stop", Keith ends it by impersonating the starting vocal inflections of Fear's 1981 song "Let's Have a War". It is highly likely that was a splice taken from the introduction to "Let's Have a War", a song deleted from the final iteration of the station.
