The Radio Stations

Recommended Posts

OzzyApu

is it only me, or did Rockstar screw up on the/most radio stations that were put in SA. To me, they didnt need the Bounce FM or the CSR-II. They also kinda screwed up on the good alternative station radio X. they put some sh*tty non rock songs in there. If this is only me, then just ignore this, but if anyone else has any ideas on any song that fits into the games time era feel free to post.

 

for radio X- they should have put a nirvana song (bleh) or another GOOD one and take out that dumb Movin' on Up song.

I tend to never listen to rap/hip hop or country, or jazz, or alt rock/nu-metal, but the selection was a complete bummer to me, though I was happy to see classic rock, I think the rock selections are far outnumbered, but to be fair, the country and hip-hop classics that again show Rockstar do appreciate the foundation of the scenes for this, as they did in VC.... I like the original hitz they chose more then anything else, but I hope and can only assume they'll do better next time! hehe I am of the mind the soundtracks won't do as well as VC...are they selling?? hehehe

they wanted to play all the music around that time, not just the songs we look back on as "hits". It really gives it a sense of realism. I mean, do you like every song played on the radio today? no, of course not.

 

and my gf loves CSR, so I gotta defend it. lol tounge.gif

im just saying that it was kinda lame and bland that they put non-alternative rock sounding songs on radio-X and stuff like mastersounds(something you would hear only like in buildings such as casinos) on the radio. ill leave K-rose alone just because there was a big country landscape and MOST OF THE COUNTRY FOLK SHOULD HAVE BEEN LISTENING TO K-ROSE LIKE THE PEOPLE THEY ARE and should not have been listening to Bounce FM like i heard them when i was GTing there cars.

I found myself usually driving around with the radio off in San Andreas now, because 99% of the songs, covering all stations, suck. As is usual, I try to listen to the entire repetoire for each station and decide my favorite, and I quickly found that I only liked three songs at all in the whole entire song bank

 

Radio X

- Midlife Crisis

- Mother

 

SF-UR

- Something, I can't remember song names on this station

 

And no other stations have songs I like in the least. The music in VC was so much better, even GTA3 (Which I didn't like that much either) was exponentially better in my opinion. I could listen to basically any radio station in Vice City and like songs I heard on there, but not so anymore. But I can't fault Rockstar for picking songs from the era, so rant /end

I listen to Radio X most of the time. But when "Movin' on up now" or some other feckin stupid song comes on I flick it down one to Radio Los Santos, to see if anything good is on. If not, I just go down to K-DST. And if that has nothing on I'll go to good ol' WCTR.

K-Rose owns, but then again, I grew up in Texas, so I know ALL of those songs. Specifically I love "I love a Rainy Night" and "One Step Forth".

 

As for other songs:

 

"War-Lowrider"

and

"Let it Whip"

The Boo Man

The one greatest song in my opinion is the one from that bouncing-lowrider mission. Does anyone know what its called and who it's by?

fox09 knows what i'm talkn about. I am the guy who likes the rock and the rap, but not as much as rock. if i here that gay song movin on up i change it right away, or the janes addiction song, cause it sounds way to kiddish. soundgarden=good, but i didnt want that song over Spoonman, even though it came out in 94.

 

but if ever a dumb song comes along and i wanna skip it, i.....change to another station, then change back to the station playing the song i hate. As soon as the text at the top of the screen saying the name of the station turns orange, before the station starts to play, change the station again. Change back to the original station, and it will have skipped whatever song it was playing.

 

ya i just copied and pasted that from gamefaqs sarcasm.gif

i think the soundtrack is ALMOST okay (No Nirvana angry.gif )

 

Itend to listen to Radio-X, K-DST, K-ROSE, Bounce, K-jah west or Mastersounds.

 

the others dosent really swing with me... And on my stereo i mostle hear Nirvana, Johny Cash and Bikstok Røgsystem (a danish reggae band)

I prefer to listen to K-DST. I think they have the most good songs. Further I don't really care, except I really hate SF-UR, Radio Los Santos and Playback FM (they're just not my style).

I like the text that Mary Beth says on K-DST! alien.gif

 

But I still think the radio's of GTA VC are better, except for K-DST.

I wish they did put Nirvana in there, but I'm a huge rap and jazz fan, I like the fact that George Clinton is one of the DJ's, I also like old school music so to me I like most stations but the rock ones oh yea lol. rampage_ani.gif

Ok, here's my beef. I think SUblime should have been on one of the radio stations in GTA:SA. Great band, from L.A., there music would have deffinately fit the game. I was dying to hear "April 26th, 1992" by Sublime during the riots in Los Santos . The song is about the LA riots for those of you who don't know the song. I was shocked to see no Sublime listed in the manual for SA, seeing that they were big in the 90's and they are from LA.

It probably all comes down to licensing rights. I just saw a SA trailer on television and noted the soundtrack was on Interscope records, maybe rivals Geffen Records (Nirvana) and MCA (Sublime) didn't want to contribute to the game for whatever reasons.

Don't you think that April 26th, 1992 by Sublime would totally rock though?

sirhc

best station is bounce FM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

1 you dropped the bomb on me

2 let it whip

3 love rollercoaster

4 hollywood swingin

5 between the sheets

6 fantatic voyage

7 don't touch that radio

 

Other good songs are free bird, a horse with no name, welcome to the jungle, white wedding, and one step forward. SF UR, CSR 103.2, and especially K frikin JAH should all be burned in a bag full of elephant excrement.Radio Los Santos is good all because of too short, dr dre, snoop dogg, and 2pac but playback is weak and should join kjah and others in the burning. Master sounds is only good because of lowrider and radiox is only good because of welcome to the jungle without those songs theyd also be burned in the feces.Kdst and Krose have at least four good songs so they dont have to be seared with fire and poo.

In my oppinion they couldve left out the crap radio stations like SF-UR and CSR 103.2

The best radio stations, in my opinion, r Bounce FM, Playback FM and Radio Los Santos. But they still coulda put in sum better songs like that suited the things happening in the game. Sum good songs 4 like the riots would b "The Day the Niggaz took Over" by Dre, RBX, Daz and Snoop also another song from the time period wood b "Lil' Getto Boy" by Dre, D.O.C and Snoop.

Both them songs r bout the LA riots so the woulda fit in good wit the game.
