GTA V Custom Radio

Recommended Posts

cjspeed

Okay, so when i heard about how much time and effort they were putting into the radio stations on GTA V, i was really excited. I actually feel as though GTA soundtracks are pretty good. Vice City was, without a doubt, the best. But SA and IV both also had really good soundtracks in my opinion. So when i finally got into the game and discovered that the music was a big naff, i was hugely disappointed. It seems they spent a lot on getting originals, but didn't really bother with filling the radio stations with many good songs. I mean, i can listen to a lot of the songs, they're not bad songs, there's just not many of them. And personally, i don't feel that all of them fit with the LA feel we were expecting.

 

So, my proposal here is that we compile a list of the songs that we feel should have been included, to really give it an LA feel, and to include music for every audience.

 

What i am planning on doing personally is making a playlist out of all the suggestions here, turning the in-game radio off completely, and playing that in the background instead of the in-game music.

 

So i want all of you to put your thinking caps on and throw some of the best tunes at me (mainstream or underground, old or new) that you feel go with the LA vibe. I don't just want you to suggest songs that you like, or would like to listen to. I want some real thought put into this. I want to hear the song and feel like i'm in LA. I'm sure you all understand what i mean. I'll add some tracks that i feel should be added later, once i've given it some proper thought.

 

Here's a few 'categories/stations' to help you choose tracks. Obviously, it's not limited to these, and suggestions of more will be included if i approve of them.

I've always wanted "Breaking the law", by Judas Priest, in a GTA game, I think it's the perfect fit.

Talking of Hurts, I'd like to hear

on Non-Stop Pop.

 

Otherwise:

Radio Los Santos had a ton of Kendrick Lamar, but how Swimming Pools (Drank) wasn't one of them I don't know. That's the only song I could just hear being on there. That and some more contemporary pop on Non Stop Pop.

Yep, should definitely be added. Rockstar usually chose less famous songs tho.

They also had Britney Spears Gimme More while Work Bitch was about to get released.

I'm disappointed Radar Love was cut from the game, so I would really love to see it in the game sometime in the future. Check out the list of cut songs, you will be surprised at the huge amount of potential the radio could have had.

It is indeed based on your own tastes, but the goal is to find songs that would fit with the stations or the story of the game.

Actually, give me a new station focused on 80's music (much like VCFM in EFLC), and I pretty much won't care what else they add to the stations other than LSRR

You guys have some interesting choices for LS Rock Radio

 

I'd say:

 

Boston: More Than A Feeling

The All American Rejects: Move Along

Snow Patrol: Chasing Cars

Def Leppard: Pour Some Sugar On Me

Aerosmith: Walk This Way (RUN DMC version is okay with me too)

Boston: Peace of Mind

Daft Punk: Get Lucky

One Direction: You Don't Know You're Beautiful

Carly Rae Jepsen: Call Me Maybe

Beatles: Help

Led Zeppelin: Kashmir

Imagine Dragons: It's Time

Queen: The Show Must Go On

Red Hot Chili Peppers: Californication

Red Hot Chili Peppers: Dani California

Lynyrd Skynyrd: Simple Man

Metallica: Nothing Else Matters

RUN DMC: King Of Rock

Eminem: Lose Yourself

AC/DC: Highway To Hell

 

Add any of those songs to the appropriate station. (I feel like Non-stop Pop should have some One Direction, Carly Rae Jepsen, etc just to show how bad music is these days).
