The 4th of July is finally here, and we’re sure you’ve got a slew of summery activities planned. Maybe you’re party-hopping, maybe you’re throwing the party, maybe you’re braving the beach, or maybe you’re opting out of the heat for a nice Netflix binge. For those of you rocking out with your flag out, however, Octane, The Spectrum, Faction, and more SXM channels have a few ways to soundtrack your long weekend.

For example, The Spectrum will be hosting a show called The History of Spectrum Artists, where the channel will dive into three-song sets with music spanning the entirety of Spectrum artists’ careers. Meanwhile, Faction celebrates July 4th by featuring a bunch of American and British artists who revolutionized their genres (See? Americans and the British can co-exist on the 4th of July. Water under the bridge and all that), and Octane spotlights the greatest hard rock bands of America, state-by-state, in The United States of Octane.

Check out the rest of SiriusXM’s contemporary rock lineup below, and don’t forget to have GREAT long weekend.
