Well, yeah, it's a bit weird that there's no classical or jazz stations.

For instance, this is a way more thrash metal sounding suicidal tendencies than the lame ounk song they have in the game of them

I would have really liked there to be a metal station, as well as a classical, jazz, and new age.  The Journey was my favorite station on IV, followed by Fusion FM.

 

All V has that's of worth is a few good pop songs and a fairly good handful of good classic rock songs.  I'm already very tired of them all now though.

 

At this point I wish there was an option to turn the radio off and have it stay off until I actively turn it back on.

Because metal sucks to game by, it becomes a wall of sound that drowns everything out. Real tough guys listen to the lowdown anyway. 

 

Also, where did you hear metal? I didn't hear any?

This, its f*cking punk! They mention a thousand times on Channel X that they are a PUNK exclusive station.

 

Though, I have no idea why classical was left out. I don't think SA or VC had a classical station either come to think about it. Methinks only Liberty has classical stations and not SA.

Why do they have punk in the game anyway and not metal? From what I understand, metal is way more popular,

Yea and the Punk scene in LA is pretty big nowadays, I'm really glad Rockstar acknowledged it.

Sad, but true.

 

I knew they were going to pander to "that crowd"... you know, the guys with their pants around their ankles, hats on sideways, chains around their neck, and gold in their mouth.

 

 

Ah well, there's always Independence FM on the PC port.

I'm a punk rock type of guy and even I can say, without a doubt, that all of the punk music in this game sounds like a dude rubbing his nipples with an electric can opener. I can appreciate the merits of Queen and Elton John on the rock station, but to not have even one AC/DC song, or Metallica song just spits acid into my mouth. Also, I miss jazz.

Damn, I didn't even know there was such a thing as non-bad metal noise bullsh*t, if it wasn't in the game long may it continue.

I feel like the 'rock' (actually more of a 'classic hits') station could have had some hair metal. Paradise City might have been a good fit.

Generally R* use radio to create a sense of time and place. I know nothing about what's on the radio in LA but I assume from the game there isn't a lot of metal...

But yeah. Its Los Santos. Of course there's lots of rap.

All of the bands on Channel X are early LA/So-Cal punk bands, with the exception of OFF! Metal is definitely more popular, but look at the 80s LA metal scene, juxtaposed to the 80s LA punk scene. One was a violent, aggressive subculture, ripe with gangs and riots, and the other was the 80s LA metal scene. If you think about it in this context, it makes a hell of a lot more sense.

 

EDIT: LA is also arguably the birthplace of hardcore punk.

Look at this guy trying to convince metal heads that punk is more suitable. We're not followers so no it doesn't make sense if you look at it in our context.

American death metal was born in Cali and then they jizzed all over the punk scene but punk liked it so much that they just kept comin back for more and more cumshots.

Just really shows who they are trying to appeal to. Crap music if you ask me. They need some pig destroyer or agoraphobic nosebleed. Check em out

 

I'm actually really surprised they didn't put dubstep in the game.

I swear, some of the people on here who bitch about LSRR don't understand the definition of rock. You think the only thing that falls under rock are hard rock band. Yes I like hard rock, but the way some of you talk it's almost as if soft rock doesn't even categories as rock.
