GTA - Joyride by Da Shootaz
GTA 2 - no idea (can't remember any songs)
GTA 3 - Push it to the Limit (what is this O Mio Babbino Caro everyone keeps mentioning. It's not in my game :/ )
Vice City - Billie Jean by Michael Jackson or I wanna Rock
San Andreas - Welcome to the Jungle by Guns N Roses or something from Radio Los Santos
IV - Arm in Arm by The Boggs
TLAD - something from LCHC
TBOGT - Boom Da Crockers Remix :)

I've played LCS, VCS and Chinatown Wars, but only once before my psp broke, so I can't remember any songs...

GTA 3- push it to the limit

GTA VC- Jan Hammer (Crockets`theme)

GTA SA- The hood took me under   (when radio LS played REAL gangsta rap instead of this fake, pussy hip hop in V)

GTA VCS- Scorpions (Rock me like a hurricane)

GTA LCS (was there even any good song?)

GTA IV (that annoying song from radio Vladivostok, i forgot it`s name)

GTA TBOGT (Texas- i don`t need a lover)

GTA TLAD- (any song from LCHC)

GTA V- Lady gaga- applause (enough said about this sh*tty new age parodies V is infested with)


Conclusion; my best GTA radio stations were radio emotion (VC), V-rock (VCS), radio LS (SA), Vice city FM (EFLC) and liberty rock radio (ELFC only)..

GTA III - the first song on Head Radio that you hear, as well as the classic radio station


GTA Vice City - the whole V-Rock radio station... and Flash FM... and Wave 103... and Fever 105... and Emotion... and especially Radio Espantoso... Pretty much every song heard on the radio, but mostly "Billie Jean" by Michael Jackson


GTA San Andreas - the whole K-DST and Radio-X radio stations... especially "Hellraiser" by Ozzy Osbourne, "Welcome To The Jungle" by Guns N' Roses, and "Somebody Up There Likes Me" by David Bowie


GTA IV - The Sisters of Mercy's "Dominion/Mother Russia", Queen's "One Vision", and Smashing Pumpkins' "1979"


GTA IV: EFLC - Bon Jovi's "Wanted Dead or Alive", The Doors' "Five to One", and Deep Purple's "Highway Star" (in TLAD)


GTA V - "Welcome To Los Santos" or Queen's "Radio Gaga"... and strangely Kings of Leon's "Red Morning Light" (which isn't featured on any radio station)

Very and fun interesting thread! The GTA soundtracks are hands down the best in gaming ever, at least as far as licensing songs go.


GTA III: Paul Engemann - Push It To The Limit

Vice City: Ozzy Osbourne - Bark At The Moon

San Andreas: Depeche Mode - Personal Jesus

Vice City Stories: Dokken - Breaking The Chains

GTA IV: Ray Lynch - The Oh Of Pleasure

The Lost and Damned: Bon Jovi - Wanted Dead Or Alive

The Ballad of Gay Tony: Patrick Cowley - Menergy

GTA V: Queen - Radio Gaga


Vice City was released when I was 11 or 12, and it was in fact the one game that launched my interest in music. I listened a lot to V-Rock and Wave 103 because I felt a strong bond with 80's heavy metal and new wave synth. 80's heavy metal is still to this day my favorite and without a doubt biggest musical interest, I just love the sound of it, and I owe it to that game. San Andreas and IV really expanded my interest in rock-based music, with 90's alternative rock and hip-hop becoming new favorites at the time. Overall, I think IV and its DLC:s all had the best soundtracks of any GTA games. The variety and many cool radio stations, from classic rock to death metal to classic hip-hop to electronic to soul and funk. V was a huge disappointment in the soundtrack department, as it was in most ways (to me), as well.

GTA 1: Joyride by Da Shootaz without a doubt.

GTA London: Either it's the theme song or Radio Andorra for me.

GTA 2: Can't pick a specific song I'd identify with GTA 2, but to me it's my favourite GTA soundtrack.

GTA III: There's that rock tune that's the first tune you hear during the credits before the electro/trance song, that's what I identify with III.

GTA Vice City: The credits theme song, though I always loved "The Bull Is Wrong" on Radio Espantoso. HEELLLOOO VIIIICE CITTTY!

GTA San Andreas: Today Was A Good Day by Ice Cube.

GTA Liberty City Stories: I always thought K-Jah was better in LCS than in III, so I'll go with the songs on K-Jah in this game.

GTA Vice City Stories: Can't decide between "Games People Play" or "Relax."

GTA IV: Soviet Connection for sure, but given how the game parodies New York, Fusion FM hits the nail on the head for me. Vladivostok FM in my honest opinion should have been reserved

just for Niko's story, the station's music in the episodes could have been relegated to other stations.

GTA Episodes from Liberty City: For TLAD, I'd go with the music on Liberty City Hardcore, whilst "You're the Voice" by John Farnham sums it up for TBoGT.

GTA V: Any song on Los Santos Rock Radio or Channel X.

III: Amy Holland - She's on fire. What else? I actually remember how this played over and over back in 2001.

VC: Tears For Fears - Pale Shelter

SA: Depeche Mode - Personal Jesus or America - A Horse With No Name

IV: Skatt Brothers - Walk the Night

EFLC: Kanye West - Love Lockdown

V: Miami Horror - Sometimes


Gotta admit that my picks for VC, SA, TLAD from EFLC and maybe even IV don't really fit those games the best, I just like those songs.


Songs for III and V completely nail their respective games though.
