Is the chain supposed to sound like that?

I noticed while riding my chain seems to sound like its grinding. I've checked the slack, its fine. Its still lubed from when it left the dealer. So why is it so rough sounding? Has anyone else had this issue or is that how its supposed to sound?

That is not normal!! If it's not sand/grit do as the others have suggested and check wheel alignment longtitudely. I use two straight edges on my bikes but I'm old fashioned. There are marks on the bike to check this but in my experience they are not always accurate.
If your chain sounds like that, it needs lubricating. ;)
I interpreted his post to read that it is lubricated!!
