GTA games have been known for their wide array of licensed music tracks, ranging from bygone eras and spanning every genre there is. Now, Rockstar is bringing all the playlists from every GTA game to the digital music realm.
Available on iTunes and Spotify, the playlists are categorized according to the radio stations featured in the original game. These playlists start from GTA III, go through the PS2 era, round up all the portable games and ends with the latest entry in the series, GTA IV and its DLC add-ons.
Following is the official listing from Rockstar games:
Grand Theft Auto IV & Episodes from Liberty City
Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas
The 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…
Grand Theft Auto: Vice City
Take 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.
Grand Theft Auto III
The 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.
Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories
In 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.
Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories
The 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.
Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars
While 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: Chinatown Wars.
The playlists only include the songs features in the said radio stations and not the funny advertisements and witty banter of the DJs. Those interested in streaming or purchasing them can head on over to the above links to enjoy the soundtracks.
