Big Tracks is a 2nd generation classic rock channel on XM Satellite Radio.[2] It plays music from the late 1970s until the early 1990s.[3] It took up where Top Tracks left off, and most of the later classic rock belonged on its sister Top Tracks channel until Big Tracks was launched. The channel was officially dropped on November 12, 2008 because of the Sirius XM merger, and replaced by Sirius' Classic Rewind and Hair Nation.
