They don't even have enough room for the channels they have, let alone new ones.

If there were channels that nobody listened to, Sirius XM would pull them. They're trying to appeal to the widest possible audience.

Maybe they shouldve called it "Temporary Metallica" instead.

On DirecTV, yes. But on Sirius XM, each channel is taking up a precious slice of a very limited amount of bandwidth. And that's what we're talking about.
