30 years since the debut album "signing off" by UB40 I think they should add a 2 tone/ska radio station

It sucks about the licensing and that, I remember on one of the burnout games on the original Xbox allowed you to add your own music to in game, not too sure if you can play a game while listening to your music through 360 these days haven't tried it yet

Dunno Suggs has to be one of the most annoying people ever, although we could have one step beyond to minimise his involvement, lol

Lack of [Insert genre] in GTA

Yeah, why the f*ck didn't Rockstar license a hundred thousand songs spanning all genres so nobody would feel left out?

Specials absolutely. Heading up the coast with their "Pressure Drop" playing. There's a lot of various music I'd love to have on, wish you could do personal soundtracks. Primus, Bosstones, Fugazi, Beastie Boys, etc.

Sublime+tumblr_lztn3dpoiv1qbc4j1o1_500.g

 

Rockstar kinda cheaped out on this soundtrack

I personal thank every deity that's ever been imagined that UB40 is not in this game.  It's bad enough having to listen to Channel X every time I get a car or bike delivered, without having to listen to that nasaly talentless idiot.  Oh really, does red red wine make you feel fine?  How clever.

UB40 just covered the song. It's originally by Neil Diamond.

Thanks.  You've just managed to make that dreadful song even worse.

I find it idiotic that Rockstar put two punk stations in the game. Why?

Should've just had one be a punk station and the other be a metal station.

You've got a point with Madness but not the Specials and UB40?

 

A bit of Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, Metalica and Green Day would have been good.

seconded, need more real classic rock, not some pop rock, I also dislike Kenny Loggins (but his talk as a DJ is good)

There should be a playlist station where you can play your own local tracks.  I'm being generous.  In this day and age there should be a station where you can spotify or Google music or whatever you use, but let's keep it simple and say local mp3s.

For some reason this seems to be an overlooked feature, especially on PS3 games. Actually...didn't RDR allow for a custom soundtrack? You'd think R* would include it on GTA games, if only to save money on licensing fees if nothing else. Ideally, have it so players could use their MP3 library while having GTA commericals cut in every so often, something like that. Maybe it'll be in GTA6...

 

In any case, I usually just turn the radio off and use my GTA playlist in Windows Media Player.

not so much overlooked as excluded or ignored because of ties to sony music ventures or business aspirations..

if you are playing on xbox you can just play the music from youre hard drive. they didnt need to include it as an option as it is built into the 360.

I've read a bit about that, but then again there are some PS3 games that have custom music as an option; one would think that GTA would be among them. But I suppose it's sort of a moot point given that the new generation of consoles are already here.
