"Steven's Untitled Rock Show" (SURS) is a program that airs on fuse in which host, Steven Smith, interviews famous alternative rock and pop-punk stars while airing alternative rock videos.

History

For the first year or so of the show's run, it was called "Steven's Untitled Rock Show". Then Fuse offered viewers the chance to vote on the show's name directly on their website. On the show that would reveal the show's new name, Green Day was the guest band. On the episode in question it was revealed that the viewers decided to stay with the name "Steven's Untitled Rock Show", but the title 'Therapy Begins At Home' was close runner-up. Over the years, SURS has been invited to many tours. Some of these tours include "The Bamboozle", "The Warped Tour", "Taste Of Chaos", and various others. Recently, SURS has been a part of the "Warped Tour" exhibit in "Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame".

Host

The program is hosted by Steven Smith, a devout disciple of rock music. In the past Steven has appeared on other Fuse programs including hosting "Daily Download" (for almost two years), "F/List", and "fuse Action News" (which he also co-wrote and co-produced). Outside of fuse, Steven has worked for VH1 as a VJ and was even given a makeover on "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy" (to the eventual amusement of some of the program’s guests). He is the only original Fuse VJ to still be seen on the network today.

Format

"Steven's Untitled Rock Show" is an hour-long dose of rock music that airs every weeknight at 4:00pm EST, 1:00pm PST.

The program airs music videos featuring mainly alternative artists (with the bulk of airtime going to indie, emo, and punk), but also includes a “classic” music video from alternative’s past (the videos have ranged from relatively recent acts like Sublime and Jawbreaker to older artists like The Smiths and Pixies).

In addition to the videos, Steven gives commentary on the music, and also interviews bands, giving them the opportunity to discuss their thoughts on their own careers and the music industry itself. Occasionally artists will even perform live in-studio (past performances have included Envy On The Coast and Straylight Run).

"Steven's Untitled Rock Show" also goes on location to shoot episodes at various concerts, festivals, and tours throughout the country. The Vans Warped Tour has been a yearly fixture on the program, while it has also featured Taste of Chaos, South by Southwest, and the Nintendo Fusion Tour.

Fan Interaction

"Steven's Untitled Rock Show" has long tried to get Fuse viewers involved with its programming. In addition to being given a chance to name the program, Steven will read fan mail on-air and accept fan questions for interviews with bands on the show. Also, now on fridays they let the viewers vote on the videos shown and are calling it "Your Untitled Rock Show".

Destination Untitled

In an attempt to further allow fuse viewers to get inside his head, Steven has begun to carry a camera on location when "Steven's Untitled Rock Show" travels abroad. The web-exclusive program, "Destination Untitled", captures Steven’s exploits and misadventures in preparing for, going to, and hanging out at concerts, festivals, and performances with the bands and their fans.
