The lights are on
Rockstar has always created licensed music soundtracks that
encompass a tremendous variety of styles and eras. Now, in anticipation of
Grand Theft Auto V, you can go back through GTA history and listen to all your
favorite tracks from past GTA games on iTunes and the streaming music service
This is tremendously cool. One note: This is strictly the
music from the GTA games, so no DJ patter is included. Here's the official word
from Rockstar complete with links to all the lists:
Theft Auto IV & Episodes from Liberty City
reflection of the diverse sounds of Liberty City, the epic in-game soundtrack of Grand
Theft Auto IV and Episodes from Liberty City features 19 unique
music stations with everything from modern East Coast hip-hop to Eastern
European pop. These playlists also include the adrenaline-pumping additions in The Lost and Damned
as well as the club anthems and rare disco classics featured in The Ballad of
Jazz Nation Radio
- Liberty City Hardcore
Rock Radio 97.8
B Soundsystem 96.9
Theft Auto: San Andreas
music of the Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas soundtrack spans the entire FM radio
dial of the West Coast during a particularly influential period in American
music and culture. From Willie Nelson to Public Enemy, Rick James to Humble
Pie, Soundgarden to James Brown, En Vogue to Black Uhuru...
Theft Auto: Vice City
it all the way back to the 80s and take the Vice City radio dial with you
wherever you go - from the soul stylings of Fever 105 to the chart-toppers of
Flash FM to V-Rock's headbangers and more.
Theft Auto III
first entry in the Grand Theft Auto series to mix licensed music tracks with
original ones created specifically for the game, Grand Theft Auto III's
soundtrack is the perfect complement to the dark and seedy underworld of
Liberty City - rock out to Salvatore Leone's favorite arias from Double Cleff
FM, Toni's glory daze tunes from Flashback 95.6 and more.
Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories
addition to including popular mainstays like Double Cleff FM, Head Radio and Lips 106, this 1998 incarnation of the
Liberty City radio dial also features the world music stylings of Radio Del
Mundo as well as DJ Clue's The Liberty Jam.
Theft Auto: Vice City Stories
saga of the Vance family's rise to power in Vice City features over 100 songs
from the iconic early 80s, including Flash FM's pop smashes,
V-Rock's metal anthems and Wave 103's new wave hits.
Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars
not stations in the traditional sense with hosts and commercials like the above
entries in the series, we'd be remiss if we didn't include the available
selections from the instrumentally infused soundtrack for Grand Theft Auto:

LOL I ran into this article without thinking.
I thought it was going to be the playlists for the GTAV.
This is still awesome though.
Game Radio FM - good memories.
Nice, I'll have to take a listen and remember the good times.
It's what I've always wanted but never asked for.
I'd love to hear the full version of "The Diner" from GTA II. The radio stations in GTA 2 were awesome/hilarious!
they got the wrong versions of the songs..... especially Vladivostok FM......
I now have a reason to use Spotify.
Where is K-Chat?
FINALLY!!!!! THey've had a GTA android app for a while, but as an iPhone owner this makes me ecstatic.
Awesome! I loved listening to V-Rock and Radio X
I want all of these...
Awesome seeing them being released. That reminds me, I need to find some Lazlo and "Just or Unjust" from GTA IV to listen to.
So if I could just have the entire GTA IV soundtrack, or namely just the Liberty City Radio station, then I will be fine.
That's pretty awesome.
Thanks for this list Matt! Man I could listen to the Beat 102.7 all day, even though I'm not even that big of a rap fan.
