What will the new radio stations be like?

Recommended Posts

I'm hoping they use this opportunity to put the radio zones feature to use, I'd really prefer it if we can NOT listen to any Los Santos radio stations whilst on the new island but instead they take this 100+ new tracks and split it up into 5 or 6 new radio stations, throw in a talk radio station or two on top and you've got a line up similar to the old 3D era GTA's (GTA3, Vice City and VCS all had 9 radio stations). Just having an entire new set of radio stations all set in the same year for this new location would be great at making it feel like a proper expansion and also help clean up the jumbled mess that the Los Santos radio stations have become.

It's high time we had a classical music station added, IMO:

 

 

 

 

Maybe add a blues station, and between the two, you can effectively curate your own Scorsese movie soundtrack on the fly. :colgate:

 

(or just do like he did with The Departed, and have that one Dropkick Murphys song on permanent repeat - because that didn't get old, fast... :sui:)

I’m not going to lie with y’all. I’m almost as excited to hear the radio stations as I am to see the island. 
 

How big do y’all think the stations will be, and how many do y’all think we’ll get? Here’s how many songs each update added plus the original amount:

Original: 242

8th gen console update: +162

The Lab: +13

Blonded: +28

LSUR: +65

iFruit: +28

Cayo Perico update: +over 100

 

Around 25-30 songs per station seems to be a reliable number.

Anyone think they might start removing some sings from the radio we already have?

 

More the day one stations much like how they had to with GTA IV because they didn't renew the licensing.

Hmm. I don't know, are the current songs still licensed? When does those licenses expire?

 

The world economy, being what it is - might be alot of wiggle room.

I've started thinking about this too and I have a feeling the more expensive artists to license music from will be the first to go. I don't know how expensive the newer bands are to obtain a license for are but I know other groups like Queen, (though the song they chose from them sucks) CCR, Johnny Cash and probably the other famous older musicians are a bit pricey.

 

By the way, has anyone thought that like After Hours this update may only be the largest because of the music that's going to be added? 100 songs has to take up quite a bit of memory.

We need an 80s/90s alternative rock, post-punk, post-hardcore, grunge, ... station.

 

Yes, username/avatar checks out. 🙂

I could be wrong, but I'm strongly feeling that The Orwells and Nobunny will be dropped from Vinewood Boulevard Radio because they've been ditched by their labels since they have credible/admitted sexual assault claims against them. Nobunny in particular has voluntarily wiped his music off from streaming sites in the wake of the Burger Records scandal (which is another deep rabbit hole in itself that some people that I know have been affected by). 

 

Other than that, I'm heavily anticipating Non-Stop-Pop FM to be a significant casuality with removed songs unless Rockstar and the labels have agreed to some extensions or whatever legal bindings were negotiated.

 

Going back to the topic though, I thought these tracks could fit in somehow...

That’s unfortunate. I liked “Who Needs You”. Other than those two songs, I believe the soundtrack will remain intact for the time being. It may have been brought up in here before but GTA 5 still has an active playerbase, unlike any of the other GTA games when it became time for their soundtracks to be cut. Don’t those licensing deals usually last for 10 years though? Why are we worrying about that now?

It's just mere speculation as we near towards the end of the presumed 10 year licensing deals. I think the amount of tracks being added over the years have implied some sort of quicker expiration which I don't see happening until the end of the original deals. We don't even know if Rockstar will add MORE songs to the Xbox Series X and PS5 releases, they seem to be committed to somewhat reach their original goal of licensing 900-1000 songs for the initial 2013 release; we're close to halfway I think after the iFruit Radio addition.

 

Some sources backing the 1000 songs goal

It will be a really BIG missed opportunity if this song isn't in the new radio station:

Was thinking about 10 years, but that R* might find it easier to remove as they add to make it feel more organic too. If they were to let alot of songs expire at the same time, renewing/replacing alot at the same time could prove more expensive as record companies see they're more in need. 

 

Just speculating of course, but after GTA IV, it's food for thought.

I think the island itself will be a bit bigger but with a hundred songs too, and whatever's tucked up in the dripfeed, could be quite huge really, lol.

An interesting point, I'd not heard of these issues but they could have an impact. And seeing R. Kelly's I believe I Can Fly mentioned, not sure that'll be added in a hurry (unless those allegations have been cleared of course, I don't know enough to comment fully though).

Some downtempo house with a touch of oldschool. In other words, something similar to the song played at the end of the teaser trailer.

I wouldnt mind some normal rock music, classic or modern.

 

Doubtful though. To me, literally all the music they have added to the game in updates so far may as well be all on the same station. It all basically sounds the same to me. 99% is...well, not something I want to listen to, ever.

 

I'll take some Lynard Skynard, CCR, Papa Roach, Metallica, Soundgarden, Aerosmith, etc.

I absolutely agree, they need to add a radio station for heavy metal/rock/metalcore/post hardcore bands as I'm chiefly a rock/metalcore/post hardcore fanatic/listener.

I always wanted an animation, of the player using a cassette, CD or 8 track for older cars stolen off the street.

I'd like that kind of radio station as well

and since we are on the subject of Music, some Nazareth would be nice too imo

Specifically: Nazareth - L.A. Girls

If y'all remember back around a year ago at this point, a group called City Morgue that makes "trap metal" posted on their IG story about a collaboration with R* coming in Summer 2020. Assuming they were supposed to be in the allegedly cancelled Cops N Crooks update, maybe their radio station is now being recycled into the Cayo Perico update. This could be why they're adding radio stationS and 100 songs rather than one radio station with around 50 songs.

🤮🤮🤮 hope not but anyway, they’re definitely not having one station with 50 songs.
