Btw did there is hit song that appears on GTA LCS radio stations? I guess GTA III and GTA LCS is using underground artist to make a name for theirself. But I will choose alt. rock or pop punk song that reaches the hit like Smashing Pumkins, Oasis, Lit, and Green Day or blink-182 although GD and blink is rise up from Southern California which is in West Coast but still East Coast need some punk too
Oh yeah I remember a film called CBGB that shows underground punk scene acts in New York 1970s. I guess back in LC '98 there should be a punk radio station which the setlist would be a song from famous punk scene artist like Iggy Pop, The Ramones, Lou Reed, Misfits and might be The Police too
1. Using less popular acts saves money and gives good acts recognition.
2. Some of the songs in the game actually are hits in the genre they are from (Rise, K-Jah, Double Cleff).
3 Those songs were used for atmosphere purposes.
4 Pop Punk for teens does not fit the mood of the game.
5 You know that music from bands like Green Day costs a lot?
6 Pop Punk just dosen't fit the GTA style game anyway if you ask me.
7 East Coast got Punk bands. You see. On the East Coast, Punk isn't corporate Pop music with guitars... It's heavy hardcore Punk stuff.
8 CBGB was a club.
9 Lou Reed, Police, and The Misfits on the same station would be a disaster (one plays Art Rock, Other plays New Wave/Ska, And the other hardcore Punk)
10 I want a Punk station too. But not a mess filled with Art Rock and Pop Punk.
11 They could have had a station just made up of Black Flag tunes and I would be happy.
