- "Real Punk. Real West Coast."

Channel X is a station that mainly plays punk rock from the 1970's and early 1980's. Similarly to Liberty City Hardcore, the station initially focused exclusively on LA-based acts; 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.
