Gta da featureing eazy e, Nwa, snoop dogg and ice cube songs. They each have like 2-3 and Gta v having Gucci mane, ASAP rocky, young scooter and Kendrick Lamar each with like 3-4 songs of their own.  An artist isn’t limited to just one song per game. It doesn’t work like that. Just an immediate example that came to mind

 

Oh yea I wouldn’t have known since I don’t listen to the rap stations.

 

But back to my original example, why the heck does Rockstar need a Bob Seeger song that specifically mentions Hollywood and California, and I’m sure other songs doing the same? What is it going to bring to the game other than immersion breaking? And I know @Zello is gonna say something like “ArE yOu GoNnA gEt ThEm To ReReCoRd EvErY sOnG?” To which I’ll bring some points:

 

-Rockstar got the music on Massiv B in gta 4 re-recorded to mention parts of Liberty City

-Not only that but Rockstar got some custom songs done for IV by big artists. If they can do that, they can throw money at an artist for a re-recording if they for whatever reason think the game absolutely 100% needs that song on the soundtrack

-Worst case scenario if they can’t, they can just make the music themselves, like they’ve done before in III and LCS, and to a lesser extent in VC

 

Given all that, either the sound department of rockstar is being run by waterheads or they’re really weirdly selective on what they choose to and choose not to care about as far as music goes

I just don't think Rockstar sees it as a big deal.

I think that YOURE the only one overthinking this, since this has never been an issue. Like, ever. I’m the grand scheme of things it doesn’t matter because it has no canonical effect on the in game locations. It’s just backdrop music to suite the location and vibe of them game. 

 

You're kinda anal, man 🙄

I mean I could bring up other examples like there being California plates hiding around V and sprite/coke logos but okay. Rockstar does a decent job trying to make their own world and they f*ck it up by doing dumb sh*t like this

Nothing is perfect, don’t expect it to be. I couldn’t imagine how hard it would be to create a fictionalized world like that. With its own entities and everything. I’m not saying you’re wrong but you’re holding unrealistic expectations.

 

and I apologize for the awful spelling errors in the last post. I was at work

Unrealistic expectations or not, it’s counterproductive to go through all the trouble of making a good fictional world just to have something slip through, be it something like a texture that was never noticed or something like a song that cost 10k to license.

I’m sure you’re the only one that believes that.
