Main article: Keith Morris/Quotes

Keith: "Channel X - the home of punk rock, rebellious slogans and really great vintage T-shirts. Only joking! They made us cut on the rebellious slogans for advertising purposes! But we do have a great line of vintage T-shirts and all things retro, including the incredibly retro concept of actually giving a shit about something."

Keith: "We're keeping it very real here on Channel X. We are rebelling hard against theme parks and car parks and developing in national parks and all the other shit we specialize in down here in the world capital of plastic - Vinewood, USA. We've dedicated our lives to the pursuit of truth, and what have we learned? Punk rock ain't always true, and Vinewood ain't always bad! Sometimes you want nothing more than a glib ending and a plastic resolution to everything. Keep dreaming, America. It's time for my training montage."

Keith: "This is Channel X and we are bringing you some of the stuff that you would not normally hear on any of the other radio stations. So go fuck yourselves."

  • This is Trevor Philips' favorite radio station, as it is the default station for his Bodhi.
  • This is the favourite radio station of the Blaine County chapter of The Lost MC.
  • This station appears to be a successor to Radio X, though Channel X plays punk music as opposed to the grunge of Radio X.
    • This is further proven by one of the station's stingers, which says "We've been Radio X for too long!", implying that the station was previously known as Radio X.
  • The logo of the station looks somewhat similar to Television X, an adult television channel in the United Kingdom.
  • Channel X might also be a parody of Channel V, a music video TV channel.
  • Songs from this station play in Ammu-Nation stores with shooting ranges in Pillbox Hill, Cypress Flats & Little Seoul, as well as inside the Tequi-la-la & tattoo parlors.
  • L.C.H.C. is indirectly referenced by Keith as "the punk scene in Liberty City."
  • A British lady's accent can be heard during one of the station's stingers, serving as a reference to the London punk scene.
  • The song "My War" by Black Flag will always play after Trevor enters his Bodhi and loses the cops after killing Steve Haines in The Third Way.
