Songs that should've been in GTA III


Recommended Posts

Game Radio


50 Cent ft P-Dap and Pretty Ugly - Hit Em Up


Eminem ft Royce 5'9 - Scary Movies (I think they may have actually intended to put this in the game as you can sometimes hear the instrumental in the background, but it's an Eminem song so it was probably way out of their budget at the time.)

Simple, this game needed a rock station which seems to be a big missed opportunity as the genre was really big back in 2001 with stuff like pop punk, alternative and Nu metal and post grunge. 


I do feel like it would've been cooler if liberty fm served as an underground alternative metal station. 


Here are songs that would suit the game:

I know there is no chance in hell these songs would have made it to GTA 3 (unless there was Vladivostok FM type station), but somehow I feel that these would be very fitting songs. The instrumental parts remind me of Rise FM so much:

My unoriginal song picks:


I know this is in GTA V but it reminds me of GTA III a lot.


Hearing this on radio for some reason gave me flashbacks to GTA III.

Way out of R*'s budget circa 2001, but did appear in a trailer:

This is the only song, to my knowledge, that featured in GTA III promotional material and didn't make it to the full game. To this day I don't think a single AC/DC song has appeared in the franchise. Likewise with Pink Floyd and Metallica. V-Rock in the two VC games had basically everything else; Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Slayer, The Cult, hell even Megadeth.

Featured in The Lost and Damned (later removed due to expired license).

Okay for starters, while I'm a huge fan of rock, I am fine with the lack of it in Grand Theft Auto III. The previous two Grand Theft Auto games, GTA1 and GTA2, had plenty of great rock tracks within it and I believe they wanted to stick their heads into different and less explored genres to the franchise. You could say "Feels Like I Just Can't Take No More" on LIPS 106 is kind of a rock song if you've given it a listen, so we do have something of the sort even if it isn't plentiful.

NOW, personally if there was a song I'd want to be in GTA III, it would probably be "New Flava In Ya Ear" by Craig Mack on GAME Radio. I believe it would lead to some interest radio chatter, about how, "GAME's music is the best, and how you wouldn't get the newest hits anywhere else."

I would've preferred to see classic inspired hard Rock artists like stikki fingerz to appear instead of nu metal inspired ones tbh.

Right with ya brother. Stikki Fingerz ROCKS!

See, this one I always thought should've been on The Classics 104.1 in GTA IV, either as the main or later as a DLC track along with the likes of...

Well, imo, some GTA 1 and 2 songs might fit with GTA 3, like these one of my favourite ones:



Well I could post more, but don't want to, I mean there are so many songs that would fit, but don't want to post them all, but all though these songs were in previous GTA games I know, but hey, they reused GTA 1 theme song in LIPS 106, so that counts.

To me, all the songs are ok. No need for drastic changes. Well, if there are things I would like to change would be the songs in Head and Lips. Don't get me wrong, these are all great, but I leaned more towards real songs, though. My suggestion would be:


Head Radio

Madonna - What It Feels Like For a Girl [Above and Beyond remix] (2001)

Green Day - Warning (2000)

Depeche Mode - I Feel Loved (2001)

Texas - In Demand (2000)

Savage Garden - Crash and Burn (2000)

Mr Oizo - Flat Beat (1999)

Lauryn Hill - Everything Is Everything (1999)


Lips 106

Madonna - Music (2000)

Korn - Blind (1995)

M2M - Mirror, Mirror (2000)

Five - Got the Feelin' (1998)

NWA - Straight Outta Compton (1988)

Walter Murphy - A Fifth of Beethoven (1976)

Samantha Fox - Nothing's Gonna Stop Me Now (1987)
