worst radio station?

Recommended Posts

Tycek

Somehow most of the worst radio stations in the series emerged in GTA V. Sure in previous game, we had like one or two stations that wasn't exactly of my taste, but I never really had the urge to change them to something different in a second. In V I often found myself switching through the stations only to not find anything I would like to hear at the moment.

 

But absolutely worst of the worst are:

-Fly Lo FM - when the music sounds like a dumpster falling down the stairs (I absolutely agree with that quote), because most of the songs sounds like hard to recognize noise. Only song I like it's "Oh, shiet, It's X" and this is mostly for the fact that it's different than the rest of this unbearable crap and it's video clip was made from Fritz The Cat movie scenes.

 

-Channel X - 90% of Amoeba and mindless crap spouted by the DJ. "And the police came with a paddy wagon, and we were thrown in the paddy wagon and there are no seats in the paddy wagon, so when the cop was slamming the brakes we were falling on the floor of the paddy wagon and there was that one guy in the paddy wagon... Useless Yadayadayada. It would be much better without this crap, just music. And that station was meant to be successor for Radio X from SA. You've got to be kidding me.

talk show and talk station in general for non-english speakers.

 

It's not THAT hard to understand what they're saying, but since you mostly listen to the radio while busy doing some car mission or car chase, it became a pain to get what they're talking about.

I think Vinewood Boulevard Radio represents a sucessor to Radio X much better, still it's not of the same quality sadly, I could listen to Radio X for hours and when I got bored, I could just switch to K-DST.

 

Those were the days...

>implying VBR is a successor to Radio X

 

The only station that can be considered as a proper successor to Radio X is P.M.R. (that cut 1990s-early 2000s rock station).

 

I also have to agree with Tycek. Channel X is nothing but renamed Radio X with punk rock instead of alternative rock and grunge. Even one of the radio stingers says about that.

I never have any interest in GTA V talk radio stations (both WCTR and Blaine County Radio). The segments are not varied and the humor in both radio stations fall too flat and seems dry to me. Unlike IV talk radio stations (WKTT and PLR) which has more varied segments and better humor.

 

Speaking of Channel X, it was decent and not as Punk Rock as LCHC, but oddly enough, that kind of thing appeals me to listen to it.

You can't make a sh*t radio list in V and not mention East los FM, that radio is a joke.

Yeah,I like that song.Songs by CCR,ZZ Top,Def Leppard,Boston and a few other are good as well.It's actually pretty good station.However,I wish there was more classic rock,hard rock and classic heavy metal,like in LRR from 4 and EFLC or KDST from SA.

As for stations I don't like,I think at least half of stations from GTA 5 would be on the list.

To be honest I wasn't a fan of this particular station, but I found some of the songs played there to be quite catchy. The only one that's sticks like a sore thumb was obviously El Sondido, but apart from that one I don't think I dislike any of the songs.

 

EL FM is strange station, not exactly fitting the parts of LS ridden with mexican gang (I can't imagine Marabunta Grande) listening to that music, but it wasn't that bad in comparison to Channel X and Fly Lo FM.

Don't put that sh*t on us...

I agree, Channel X is the only good station on GTA V imo, but they could've gotten a better DJ...If only Darby Crash were still alive, he would've been perfect...And what people fail to understand is that the type of punk rock that they play on Channel X is part of the LA scene, which is what? The city that LS is based on...

 

 

and san juan sounds is much better than that piece of sh*t east los fm

Like Nico, as a latino I hate latino music, but I'd choose San Juan Sounds over East Los FM...

 

BUT...

 

Speaking as a person who lived in South Cali for 14 years, the music that they picked for the station is fitting for the area...

After scrolling through the reply, I think most of you in here hate East Los FM, Channel X, and FlyLo FM/Worldwide FM. I can't blame you guys for hating them, but I just want to give my two-cents about those four stations.

 

East Los FM is not a full crap of a station. All I see is that you hated it because of that "El Sonidito" song, but all I know is beside that song, the station is actually pretty decent and I found some of the Mexican songs that I like (Jessy Bulbo's "Maldito" and Don Cheto's "El Tatuando"). So I can't find any good reason to really hate it.

 

Channel X is a bit confusing at first, thinking that it serves as the LS version of LCHC, turned out to be the 80's version of VBR. I still don't get it why R* don't want to put a hardcore metal in V, but Channel X is a good trade-off for the lack of hardcore metal in the game. Especially if you like 90's Grunge type of music (kind of realized why R* dropped PMR at the last minute, because it serves the same purpose as Channel X).

 

FlyLo FM is one of my frequent station in GTA V that plays trap music, IDM, and some rap here and there. I think some of you folks who hate FlyLo can't understand how trap music is good to listen to, and I don't blame you guys for that. It's essentially Soulwax FM with more drugs in it tbh, and I find it enjoyable.

 

WorldWide FM, at first I thought it was the successor of The Journey with a bit of JnR in it, but it's actually more than that. The genre mix pretty much represent "radio station that plays various music from around the world" (even the radio description indicate that as well), and it seems like the reason you dislike this radio station because of the diverse genre and you can't see the connections on each genre. If you listen to Gilles Peterson's other works, it's almost similar to it, although WorldWide FM doesn't have any upbeat feeling to it like other stations with similar genre.

 

TL;DR, those are just my opinion on those stations and the reasons why I have contrary opinions toward those stations.

I am not fond of V soundtrack, because it's actually repeats itself. Two of my problems with the Channel X as I listed above were the repetitiveness of the songs and DJ crap talk. Punk music that was played on the station wasn't bad and it actually fitted rebellious and anarchistic Trevor. But when I jump into his Bodhi to hear Amoeba for hundredth time in last two days, it's just grind my gears.

 

And I am really sad that P.M.R was replaced with VBR. I don't know of course how is the possibility that the songs listed on some pages (GTA Wikia) were indeed meant to be on the station, but if these were really meant to be there, we could get one of the best stations in the game ever. I dropped them on a Flash drive and used them during random gameplay it was very pleasant experience.

I hate the EFLC version of Electro-Choc. GTA IV featured a nice mix of house and post-punk with an awesome DJ, but EFLC turned that nice electronica station into some EDM/electro house garbage that doesn't fit Liberty City and Alderney at all. And no, I don't hate it because I dislike EDM, but because Rockstar have chosen the wrong kind of electronic music to their game.

I don't mind V's stations

 

My choice will be SF-UR ("House" station from San Andreas), For some reason it just irritates me I would have rather listen to a 90s Bubblegum Pop Eurodance station then House/Acid House

III: Game FM

VC: Wildstyle and K-Chat

San Andreas: Playback FM and Master Sounds

LCS: Liberty Jam FM

VCS: Fresh 105

IV: L.C.H.C., San Juan Sounds and The Classics

EFLC: L.C.H.C., San Juan Sounds and Electro-Choc

V: Non Stop Pop FM and Channel X

 

Before you metalheads and rapheads start to get angry about my post, just to get clear, hardcore sounds and rap aren't my cup of tea. As well in V I think East Los FM isn't bad at all but San Juan Sounds is very annoying.

I never quite gave a sh*t about the metal station on IV and EFLC, metal just hasn't been my thing I guess? To be honest I quite like Electro-Choc, it has a great DJ which I think is in par with Soulwax (no offence to Francois K though, legendary guy) and the song selection is pretty great for the atmosphere the game is set in. i can agree on San Juan Sounds though, reggaeton was a fad that thankfully passed by (although I see lots of people hearing that junk over here), but it's meant to emulate the Puerto Rican community in LC, so it's fine I guess?

 

Oddly enough I find Non-Stop-Pop enjoyable. Sure it has it's oddballs here and there (Tennis Court, Moves Like Jagger, Applause, for example) but the variety of songs from 30 years and back is pretty great. I didn't expect artists like Gorillaz and M83 to show up, so props to that. And so I guess it's my guilty pleasure radio station, nothing that bad.

 

I'll also have to agree with Channel X. It's awful. It's like the developers went all like: "Oh we have this really hostile, meth smoking character, I guess we should make a radio station based on his personality, right?" and here we are, with a song that's screams about "being f*cked with subliminally" followed by incoherent screaming and loud guitar noises. It only has like, two decent songs IMO. Why not bring Radio X back? It could've worked really nicely.

 

And now I'll put my input here. I dislike East Los FM. Not because it's terrible, but it's because the station is messy. As a Mexican guy I thought the song variety went all over the place and they decided to pick random Hispanic artists out of a hat and put them in that station. Surprisingly enough there are quite a handful of alright songs in the playlist (Pachuco, Es-Toy, Fiebre de Jack, hell, even Se Me Perdio La Cadenita) but adding narco-corridos and traditional salsa songs next to alternative rock and ska? And don't even get me started on Don Cheto's "rap song". I just think they could've done better with the selection to be honest, and maybe divide it into two separate stations as well? Now if only they had updated it in the enhanced version it would've changed my perspective a little bit.

East Los FM...yeah, the whole purpose of that station was to listen to El Sondito while falling down Mount Chiliad in a yellow and blue Vapid Stainer taxi.
