The Bone Yard is a channel featuring a classic-based active rock format on XM Satellite Radio channel 53, starting on January 15, 2009[1]. Prior to the Sirius-XM merger, this was XM channel 41, which is now Hair Nation.

The Bone Yard was the home of The Rock of Jericho, hosted by WWE wrestler Chris Jericho, until its cancellation in December 2006. Currently, Eddie Trunk hosts Eddie Trunk Live.[2] Artists heard on Boneyard include Metallica, AC/DC, Rush, Aerosmith, Mötley Crüe, Cheap Trick, Ozzy Osbourne, Def Leppard, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, and Megadeth. Originally carrying an active rock format, most of the newer rock (mostly alternative-based hard rock artists) went to its sister Squizz channel (which ceased operations on November 12, 2008 in favour of Octane) back in 2002. Some newer music can be found on this channel, however. Alternative-based active rock music, mostly from 2000s artists can only be found on its sister Octane channel.

With the commingling of channels due to the XM/Sirius merger, Boneyard appeared to have absorbed the Sirius heavy classic rock channel Buzzsaw, having supplanted Buzzsaw's spot on Sirius channel 19 and Dish Network channel 6019. However, Sirius XM made Sirius 19 AC/DC radio for a limited run engagement through January 2009, putting The Boneyard (along with Sirius's The Strobe and BackSpin) on hiatus from November 12, 2008 until January 15, 2009. No announcement has been made regarding the specific format of the new Boneyard or it's on-air talent lineup.

When the new Boneyard launched, most of the hair bands were dropped, with the channel sounding more like the former Sirius channel BuzzSaw. Hair bands can still be found on its sister Hair Nation channel on Sirius 23 and XM 41.
