This may not be the most eloquent of press releases, but since when has punk music been about eloquence or press releases for that matter? Even if a press release isn't very Punk, GamersRadio.com is proud to announce the debut of our second radio station on Live365 to compliment our flagship station in the Metal genre.
Broadcasting at 64K MP3Pro Stereo, Gamers Radio GR2: The Punk Phase plays a wide variety of music from punks' 1970's origins to the present. In History Lesson Part II, D. Boon of the Minutemen said "Punk Rock changed our lives" and while listening to GR2 may in fact be life changing, the intent is to expose the listener to the music that we love and that might broadly be labeled "Punk". Our core sound is built around No Use For A Name, Swingin' Utters, Rancid, Social Distortion, and NOFX. From there pretty much anything goes and the listener should expect to hear music ranging from something that might pass for pop, to a song that you might just as likely hear on our Metal Station. The intent is to play music that gets your blood and emotions moving because whether the song is old or new, political or about drinking and f*cking, we want it to mean something.
