One of the most integral parts of Rockstar’s flagship franchise are the “choons” that be bangin’ from your Cheetah!
We all have wonderful stories about driving on the open road whilst Flock of Seagulls plays…and then someone opens fire. Either way, music in Grand Theft Auto, has and will always play a massive role in setting the tone.
Now, you can relive those memories through iTunes and Spotify as Rockstar has compiled playlists of tracks from all of the radio stations in GTA IV, San Andreas, Vice City and more!
Sadly, some of the songs that were spun by many of the DJs in the Grand Theft Auto games aren’t available on either music distribution service, but Rockstar have said that they’re hoping to “add the original songs within our control where possible soon.” But wait, there’s more! If people want to check out some of the radio adverts from your favourite GTA games, you can do so by heading over to Rockstar Games’ The Advertising Council repository.
Below, you can find links to station specific playlists for either Spotify or iTunes. Go and relive those memories, you crazy kids!
