This is a petition for all KNAC fans out there. For the last 15 to 20 years, a lot of heavy metal fans in Southern California have been either been dying for KNAC to come back on the air or another radio station that can play bands like Mötley Crüe, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Black Sabbath, Metallica, Megadeth, Anthrax, Slayer, Testament, Accept, Corrosion of Conformity, Suicidal Tendencies, Savatage, Dio, Armored Saint, Danzig, Skid Row, Pantera, Quiet Riot, W.A.S.P., Dokken, Metal Church and many others. As a result, I started this petition and my goals are to get as many fans as possible to sign it and let the staff/associates/executives of KNAC know why we want this long-lost radio station back on the airwaves rather than listening to it on the internet. KNAC was the biggest heavy metal radio station in America, and they would play lots of heavy metal and hard rock artists that you still hear or don't hear on the radio. They would also play music by local metal bands. KNAC signed off on February 15, 1995, with Metallica's "Fade to Black" being the last song to be played on the station, followed a goodbye message from general manager Gary Price. KNAC has since been replaced by some lame-ass Spanish radio station, and even today, we still don't have a true heavy metal radio station in Southern California. Here are many reasons why we want KNAC back on the air, and why it's more important than the internet-version: 1995 was the last time we've had a radio station in L.A. that showcases heavy metal (this does not count KLOS, which sometimes plays heavy metal but is a classic rock station). KNAC not only helped the West Coast and L.A. heavy metal scene gain fame, but they are credited for discovering bands like Guns N' Roses, Megadeth, Metallica, Anthrax, Slayer, Alice in Chains, Poison, L.A. Guns, Skid Row, Testament, Danzig, Pantera, Faith No More, White Zombie, Living Colour, Exodus, Korn, and many others, well as being the first station to play music by some of those bands. If anyone wants a real heavy metal radio station in L.A., then KNAC should come back on the air.
