A REAL rock station for once. Not this soft rock and pop rock sh*t. Last good rock station was V-Rock from VCS. I mean, I liked some of the tracks from LSRR and LRR, but they were such a jumbled mess of sub-genres that it didn't have a consistent theme.
Have you listened to TLAD/EFLC's version of LRR? That was pure perfection!
Go To Hell by Alice Cooper alone made it the best radio station in the whole series.
Name THREE radio hosts from the HD universe that are anywhere near as good as Julio G from Radio Los Santos, Tommy "The Nightmare" Smith from K-DST, Sage from Radio X, Toni from Flash FM, or Lazlow from V-Rock. And no, the talk radio stations don't count.
Iggy Pop, Jimmy Gestapo, Juliette Lewis.
Better stations overall. GTA V had some stuff that was really not needed. Like all of the weird hipster sh*t they added in. With the old games, the radio soundtracks usually reflected upon the popular genres of the era they were covering. But in V it feels like they added stations just to make the selection look bigger. I'm not saying Rockstar has to pander to the masses and not include anything that isn't mainstream. I'm just saying that they could have focused a bit less on adding more stations and focus more on making better stations. Quality over quantity.
I hated how the Rock & Punk stations were full of mainstream sh*t in V. LSRR was sh*tty soft ballads, and Channel X was sh*tty California Punk with bands that sound like f*cking amateurs and vocalists that sound like f*cking sissies, bland boring sh*t. LCHC in IV on the other hand was aggressive as hell, had a lot of energy to it, and had some killer songs and solos.
The Lowdown was pretty nice though. Rebel Radio was suprisingly good too.
I agree with you on EFLC's LRR, but it's a shame that it was only DLC and not in a full release.
Iggy Pop was good but nothing spectacular really, I agree fully on Jimmy Gestapo. Never really got around to fully listening to Radio Broker, usually just flipped to something else.
Oh my GOD was LSRR a trash heap. I avoided that station like the plague until the current gen release came out, when they actually put some good stuff on there, but they mixed it in with all of the crap, so switching to the station is like spinning the Wheel of Misfortune. I was really hoping that the X in the name would mean that it would be a similar station to Radio X with the grunge and alt-rock from the 90s, but instead we get this stupid sh*t. LCHC was good but it didn't have that many tracks, which was disappointing. The Lowdown is nice but I would have wanted some stuff from the 80s, like what Fever 105 had. I think Rebel Radio only got good after the Current Gen release.
