GTA 4 Update Removes Songs Due To License Expiration, Fascination By David Bowie Also Removed

A few days back we heard the news that some songs in GTA 4 will be getting removed, as the license expires in 10 years and apparently the time has come. The new GTA 4 Update has rolled out and it has removed many songs from the game.

Songs have always had a unique role to play in all the GTAs. Listening to amazing songs while driving has been one of the perks in GTA 4.

Apparently, this perk is no more, well it is still there since some of the songs are still present.

This new GTA 4 Update has hit hard on the Russian and Ukranian music channel Vladivostok FM. GTA 4’s classic rock radio station, Liberty Rock songs also got hit.

Some of the most loved songs like; The Smashing Pumpkins’ “1979,” David Bowie’s “Fascination” and ELO’s “Evil Woman” have been plucked out of the game.
