I can't use a song from the radio to represent the game, I think the main theme is supposed to do that. The only instance where it would make sense is in GTA 1 where the theme is also on the radio.


What i can do though is give you the radio station which was the most relevant to the game experience, which is a subjective answer (except for a couple no-brainers like Head Radio in III, Radio Los Santos in SA & Flash in VC) it would be one of the stations I've listened the most to, so here I go:


GTA 3: Flashback FM/HEAD/Lips 106

Vice City: Wave/Flash/Fever

SA: Radio Los Santos/K-DST/Bounce

IV+EFLC: LRR/The Studio/Vice/JazzNation

V: Los Santos Rock Radio/Non Stop Pop/Space


I think Non-Stop-Pop epitomizes that Richmond/Vinewood feeling very well, probably got something to do with the fact that the clothing stores are tuned in to that station. Space is rather subjective to me because after leaving the bad neighborhood my Franklin character discovers his disco phase. (probably his best phase, certainly to me).

99 Luftballoons song comes from GTA VC, not VCS.
