In Saints Row, some songs randomly play on the wrong station. While this has already been discussed on assorted talk pages, I wanted a more centralised place for future discussion about this topic.
Although I could speculate many possible causes, the exact cause of this is currently unknown to me. If anyone can reliably trigger any song to play on different station, please leave a comment.
While some songs can play on certain stations, they should not be listed in radio stations articles unless they're supposed to play on the station.
- If the announcer announces the song, it's supposed to be on that station.
- If it's in the audio bank for that station, it's supposed to be on that station.
In 2011, I added the tracklists from all stations from the game files, but since that time, some have been changed, and I may not have caught all of them.
If you have any doubt about whether a certain song is supposed to be on one station or another:
- Check the page history to see who added it.
- Leave a comment here to ask, and I - or someone else - will look into it and let you know.
- Previous discussion 1: Talk:89.0 Generation X
- I personally verified that some songs from 89.0 Generation X and The Faction FM 99.8 sometimes switch.
- "Motion City Soundtrack - Everthing Is Alright" from The Faction FM 99.8, apparently sometimes plays on 89.0 Generation X, as someone once added it to the page.
- "Ready, Aim, Misfire", from 89.0 Generation X, sometimes plays on The Faction FM 99.8 - I changed the station and it was already playing there.
- "Silhouette Serenade", from The Faction FM 99.8, sometimes plays on 89.0 Generation X. An anon user said the intro for the song was for "Paint It Black - Panic". I also heard this track, but did not note the intro.
- "Codeseven - Roped And Tied" from The Faction FM 99.8, sometimes plays on 89.0 Generation X. I heard this track myself.

- Previous discussion 2: User talk:SaintsRow1Fan
- On 2011-08-30, an anon added Mastodon - "Blood And Thunder" to The Krunch 106.66.
- On 2011-12-25, a different anon removed the same track from The Faction FM 99.8.
- I completely overlooked both of these edits, despite having previously added the tracklists to both articles in May of 2011.
- This track does not have announcer lines on either station, but is in the audio bank for The Faction FM 99.8, so belongs on that page.
- I have not personally heard it on either station, but I think it can be assumed that those two anons both heard it on The Krunch 106.66.
