New ‘GTA 5′ radio appearance confirmed by artist

While major details regarding the upcoming “GTA 5” are scarce, today we have uncovered a small piece of information regarding the game, but many fans may also find this information interesting. Rockstar Games is known to implement a variety of radio stations into titles within the “Grand Theft Auto” franchise, as “GTA 5” will be no different. (Grand Theft Auto V, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

That's pretty cool. I mostly just listen to the talk radio in GTA games... Vice City had the best soundtrack of any game (outside dedicated music games) IMO. I hope they have an 80's station, or at least a decent rock station. If the game has a Cali vibe, they need to have an 80's rock/glam station to listen to while cruzin' the strip.

I don't know about you guys, but I'm hoping there is a radio station similar to Radio Los Santos playing some old school 90s rap.

Isn't that a Drive OST? Goddamn, that movie has some amazing soundtracks. Amazing actors too.. *Cought*Bryan Cranston(Walter White)*Cought*

Anyways, out of all the GTA's, Vice City has the best songs. I remember I use to drive cars just to listen to the awesome songs on the game.
RyuX19  +   1060d ago
Yep that's from Drive and where does that movie take place? In LA, I'm going to be blasting the Drive OST while driving at night in Los Santos.
KingKevo  +   1060d ago
Oh yeah, one of the guys from Daft Punk sampeling Smalltown Boy, one of the 80's best songs, is just awesome.
ajax17  +   1059d ago
Hell yeah! That song is so cool! Night driving with that song playing! So awesome!
Root  +   1060d ago
Hope they have old songs in the game, they tried modern stuff with GTA4 and the radio stations were crap.

Vice City and SA had amazing soundtracks because of the oldies in the game

Maybe some ABBA/Buckfizz while I kill some enemies in a drive by :D

They didn't even put any decent modern music in GTAIV. I really hope to hear the likes of Foo Fighters, The Killers and Muse in V. I'd love to hear a bit of Tomcraft and Fun Lovin' Criminals too.
LOL_WUT  +   1060d ago
Foo Fighters, The Killers and Muse? Hell no! Keep that away from GTA!

Give me some Classic rock, thrash or punk.
LarVanian  +   1060d ago
Would you prefer listening to all of that underground crap on Radio Broker than the likes of Foo Fighters and Kasabian?
And even if they were in the game, you could still choose not to listen to them. I'd say that there will most likely be another class rock station in GTAV.

Foo fighters, killers and muse are not good bands...

They should put in

Imagine Dragons
Swiss Lips

Also GTA IV has brilliant music such as
The Rapture: No sex for ben
Greenkeepers: vagabond
Public enemy

Radiobrocker and electochoc were the best stations.

@ omi25p

Foo Fighters and The killers are good bands. Muse not so much but really? swiss lips? No sir! Santigold maybe but i agree with Imagine dragons. The killers i think should be in GTAV but not foo fighters or muse.

I really hope they add in a dubstep station. They always have a electronic station so it makes sense.

Swiss lips are a great indie band, Every single killers song is the same. They need a real indie radio station such like radio broker. A dubstep station would get too repetitive, even though i like dubstep they do all sound the same
dontbhatin  +   1060d ago
@ omi25p

Im sorry but if you think all dubstep sounds the same, then you arre listening to the wrong dubstep. What artists do you listen to?

But honestly all the ststions would get repetitive because they dont update the stations. Would be the same playlist every time on each station would just be shuffled to avoid too much repetitiveness.

Omni, I think you provided some great stations for the station Hipster 99.1...lmao
Yukicore  +   1059d ago
I personally liked that they found music that I haven't even heard of, it goes great in both ways, they don't have to pay much for licensing etc. and they give publicity to artists, they might even get paid to feature a song in their game, who knows...

has long fernando martinez is in it im good
AiirJordann23  +   1060d ago
I think it would be better if you could have a station that uses the music from your ps3 and Xbox
NukaCola  +   1060d ago
This. I honestly don't remember if GTA IV does this, but I loved the "Cassette" in San Andreas on the original Xbox. I just listened to my own tunes. Always wished the consoles would do this for Fallout too. I know Xbox/PS3 do ingame music and stuff, but I like integrated game music features the best.

Oh shit, is it going to be a whole station of retro synth music? SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY.
Plagasx  +   1060d ago
Oh dear, driving at night time in GTA V just got a whole lot better

Drive had such a badass soundtrack call me excited or at least my nipples are

He only Tweeted "NightRide FM" He didn't say Anything about GTA V.
ThichQuangDuck  +   1060d ago
how is this an official story some say this is his next EP. Either way would be good news.
Imikida  +   1060d ago
This song should be on the station,it would really fit the feeling of GtaV
Deku-Johnny  +   1059d ago
I have this terrible feeling that the soundtrack might be as bad as GTAIV's soundtrack. R* had two of the best soundtracks ever with VC and SA and then boom GTAIV came out with one of the worst soundtacks ever. If the map really is as big as it's been announced to be then we deserve good music whilst we're cruising cross country.

Kavinsky is good. Glad to hear this. I have a good feeling about the music in this game and the game in general.

There is going to be so much content packed in.

This will be what everyone is doing in the Summer because not many other new games will be released.
