Songs that should've been in GTA III


Recommended Posts


While GTA 3 may present itself as a more surreal game with its grittyish NY inspired atmosphere; this game I feel like has had that goofiness with its satire on pedestrian squishing sounds and non sense oriented lyrics of the produced house made songs like on Head Radio and Lips. 


This song in particular is a parody on NU- metal with hip-hop vocals which would be an actual licensed song to work well against the underground nature of GTA 3 soundtrack. I feel like songs like this would expand on the 3D LC satire.

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




They actually did put a small snippet of DSP in the game. When you get near one of the clubs, you can hear it, I think the one in the mission Chaperone. They also put snippets of Benzoate, E104, Figiwhiz.

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.


The song "Fame" by her has a really similar opening to one of the songs on Flashback.

There was a radio station mentioned in GTA3's manual and billboards called OR-Bit but wasn't listenable. People think it was an earlier name for Rise FM due to their common space theme, but I have another theory. At around this time Rockstar also released a game called Midnight Club which featured music by Derrick May and Surgeon, while in GTA3's Feb 2001 trailer it used a song by Derrick May called Kaotic Harmony. So its safe to say that Rockstar was a bit on a techno kick, and because of it I think that OR-Bit could be named after The Orbit club in Morley, Leeds. While I don't know how popular that club was to earn a fictional radio station named after it, it was a techno club that was the site for a legendary set mixed by Surgeon. It could've been a great inclusion, as Midnight Club proved both techno and drum and bass make for great car chase music.


I also think Duvet by Boa would make for a good inclusion on Head Radio. But this is mainly because the reason why this song became so popular, an anime called Serial Experiments Lain, always struck me as having the same vibes as GTA3. Both SEL and GTA3 feature a modern setting with a seamy, dystopian underside. It would be a good tribute to another piece of media with a similar vibe. It sounds sappy lyrically, but so was Change by Conor & Jay.

This soundtrack would have totally kicked ass if it had some Linkin Park and Jay-Z hits included.
