gts.

Because they didn't want to add it maybe? Or usage licenses were too expensive? Who knows... Probably it wasn't even an idea.

2001, Liberty City, when I saw there wasn't any radio playing rock I thought that that genre wouldn't get along with the game, at least not enough to have it's own radio station. The only type of rock suitable would be soft, and actually you have Pushing to the limit, which I consider it to be a pop-rock song, although idk if there are more songs alike.

Yh It seems like they do play pop rock and soft rock but don't have their own station and just mixed up with other non rock songs.  One song of lips played alternative rock that should've been on head radio imo but then again its advertised as a top 40 station instead of dream pop like how it was in LCS. I felt like they couldve added electric guitars noises on the soft rock songs to help it make it feel more rockish. At least they did a better job with the pop rock songs in LCS imo.

Pity (for you) is the word, better than hate😌                                      At least tell me you don't like trap or reggaeton.

However I still don't feel like a rock station would fit in the game.

nah I don't like them either. I was a bit ironic when I wrote the comment before, I know 90% people would have a problem with disliking rock music.

Rap has no soft place in my heart. Rock however is but I like a bit of house music on the side.

I believe it was due to cost of licensing for certain bands. I’m sure if Rockstar had the funds, they’d put rock into the game. But they wouldn’t put 50s rock in the game but more like grunge, nu metal, pop punk, and alt rock. Y’know stuff that was out around 2001. Korn = Expensive. Nirvana = Expensive.

I would say so if I didn't find that some rap songs actually have  meaningful and deep lyrics (not drugs, weps...)

But in GTA 3 you don't find main group songs, almost all are of unknown bands or artists, for sure they could have put any rock, metal, grunge of lesser known bands.

So there was no real excuse than lol, I believe there was going to be a rock and metal station to appear but got cut which is a shame. 

 

I'm glad LCS Did a better job of making head radio seem more rock.

It was still pop though dude. I don’t know what head radio you’ve been listening to.

Well it did a great replication of such pop rock bands during the late 90s. It wouldn't really make much sense in lcs to have nu metal or grunge imo.

Maybe. You probably didn’t read my first post well. I just made examples of two well known and popular rock genres of the time. They could’ve added and rock music that would’ve fit the NYC influenced LC. Hell they could’ve had a punk rock station in the game and that would’ve been cool as hell.

Well those raw genres wouldn't really suit lcs imo. Pop rock was at its peak then.  I liked the pop rock and soft rock they added in the game, so badass but in gta 3, it's f*cking garbage
