Have they removed music from GTA5 yet?

I  know the music in GTA's often disappear from the online store versions as they lose the rights, has the same thing happened to GTA5 yet?

Aside from "Can't Hold Back (Your Lovin')" by Kano on Space 103.2, there was another song that was technically removed. Back when the 8th Gen version originally released, Non-Stop Pop played the album version of "Tape Loop" by Morcheeba. Around the time the Heists Update came out, it was replaced with the Shortcheeba Mix. The album version is still in the game files, but you can only listen to the remix during actual gameplay; it's an odd choice. As such, the only way to get it to play normally is to use a PS4 or Xbox One physical copy without installing any updates. (The GTA Wiki claims the original still plays in the Diamond Casino & Resort, but I couldn't tell you for sure, since I haven't really touched Online in a long time. It also says that the PC version had the OG song until the aforementioned Casino update released, but I can confirm first-hand that the remix has always played on PC, even back when it came out 2015.)

 

You also have to remember that GTA V turns ten years old next year. I'm sure R* will be champing at the bit to remove more music to "celebrate" the anniversary, just they did like VC/SA/LCS/IV... :adminkek:

I have the Epic Games version (got it when it was free) but I suppose it sounds like I'm not missing out too much yet, would they remove the songs from it in the future with updats or that only applies to new purchases ?

 

I'm a little bit worried because I replayed GTA4 and noticed the radio was completely butchered. Granted I suppose I like Vice City FM better than Vladivostok music-wise, but it ruins the nostalgia factor for me and it instantly hit me when Roman comes pick you up at the beginning and it's not even shwan shwan shwan that's playing but a random generic bland song.

The game will inevitably lose some music over time, as long as you are updating your game, one of these updates will remove some music for sure.

 

It's a shame because while Record labels might be a factor in this whole thing, I really believe it's just Rockstar not bothering to renew them in the first place.

 

I don't care for the radiostations for this game besides maybe 2 or 3 songs, but they should definitely try and keep them in the game, I really like VCS's radiostations and I can only imagine how butchered they would be if they rereleased that game today.

Yes.

 

That was a good song in Space 103.2. It's sad that we can't listen to it together with our friends while chilling with out ride anymore

And this is why I am a proud box wh*re. Something about knowing that I can pull a disc out of its now crusty box, bypass updates and play the game (I don't care much about Online) with all its musical glory, the way it was intended, just makes me sleep better at night.

Bet once GTA V's 10th Anniversary rolls around the corner they'll do what they did with IVs anniversary and remove a sh*t ton of the songs in the game.

I don't think so. GTA V is their gold child, they won't neglect it like IV.

This is the Way! San Andreas without Tom Petty or Vice City without Michael Jackson is a disgrace
