Referenced In-game locations in music

Recommended Posts

On the wikipedia page for Grand Theft Auto IV it says "Several artists re-recorded their songs to make references to in-game locations."

 

I'm thinking it might be replacing a simple shoutout of Brooklyn to say Broker which sounds pretty cool so is there any truth to this? And if so does anyone know the songs that reference in-game locations??

This one mentions the LC Boroughs before the song starts, but I dunno if this song was made specifically for the game or what

This could also be some evidence that Baltimore may not exist in the GTA Universe but that is beside the point

 

In the original song you'll hear:

Feel the pain, coming up through the sewer, Through the house on the hill, through the baltimore buses, Got a license to kill, take to your own love. If the truth be told, I'm in love with this city and I'm out of control, I'm out of control, But I live in this city and I'm out of control, I'm out of control. But I live in this city and I'm out of control.

 

But in the GTA IV version (or I guess you could say GTA Universe rendition) you'll hear:

Feel my pain, coming up from the sewer,
To the house on the hill, I'm the boss of all bosses,
Got a license to kill, take to your own love
If the truth be told,
I'm in Liberty City and I'm out of control
I'm out of control
I'm in Liberty City and I'm out of control
I'm out of control
I'm in Liberty City and I'm out of control

 

Any other findings like this will be greatly appreciated... Thx

Trivia: Greenskeepers is Favored Nations, who was featured in Radio Mirror Park in GTA V, who is also James Curd, who did the OST for a lot of the Online DLC's. So he's been with Rockstar for a loong time, no wonder he did change his song freely. ;)

Awesome! Didn't know this, but does anyone else have any other referenced places

I'd like to just make this actually the whole GTA series

so if a song says Los Santos like the remix of the GTA 5 theme stuff like that would be welcome too

Apparently, Rockstar contacted Seryoga (the band who made King Ring, the song featured in GTA IV's 3rd trailer) to actually MAKE a song to GTA IV: Liberty City: The Invasion (Вторжение).


However I have no freaking idea what the lyrics mean and 99% of Russian Lyrics websites look like something you'd get a virus just by searching for, so hell no.

 

And he kinda mixes some english words in a part of the song, I heard "Russian Boy" and "American Dream", and I learned how to say "Invasion" in Russian, so that's something.

Most of DJ Green Lantern's Invasion has a lot of LC shoutouts.

Great song IMO , He said Liberty City, Russian's & the Mafia so it make's me think it was made for the game that's just my opinion , Also it was in one of the trailer's for the game too.
