Music in GTA V

Everyone has their opinion on whether the music is better than previous games or not. Don't really want to get into the particulars but I think it could be an age thing. Be as honest as you can. Maybe R* might take demographics into consideration when they plan the music for GTA games.

I mainly listen to Non-Stop Pop Radio (primarily for West End Girls), but I must admit that most of the songs aren't really my taste. I don't listen to modern day pop music (00s and 10s) and I heard enough of Pure Shores when I was being dropped off to school.

I've gotta admit though, Fergie's Glamorous does strike a chord with GTA III's Stipe Summer.

In any case, Vice City and Wave 103 was my favourite radio station. And that's all music before I was born.

im quite happy with the selection. i dont really listen to rap music, but i like quite a lot from los santos radio. my favourite is non stop pop and soulwax 2nd. but each station has its goods and bads

unlike in san andreas KDST was the best. i like ALL of the songs there so i would listen to that station a lot. whereas on this i flick between 4 or 5 different ones

More than double the 25y? I really liked the Vice City music better but this game has quite a variety. Been listening to music I'd never listen to in real life. And greets from a fellow Orlandoan.

20 and love the music.

Flylow FM, Radio Mirror Park, Radio Los Santos, Soulwax FM & West Coast Classics are all brilliant stations.

Flylow being the best.

Need more selection as after afew hours you hear the same 5 songs over & over again it just kills it.I felt GTA IV had a great selection & enough that I could switch channels & go back to another when I got tired of it but this game just dose not have enough songs for me & that's the only problem.Also they took the electro channel away which sucks

Eh, I've heard worse. They could of done a better job with including more genres with the amount of radio stations they included.

I'm technically under 25 on paper, but if you were to look through my musical collection you'd think it belonged to someone in their late-mid 60s.

The classic rock station and rebel radio are what I enjoy the most.

The classic rock station is really amazing because it isn't just full of signature songs. Most of them were hits, but not huge singles and that's pretty cool.

Also what's better than BOB SEGER?

More Bob Seger of course, two Seger songs on here, best station hands down.

(Although Emotions 98.3 will always have a special place with me)

i'm under 25 and im mixed about the radio selection in gta V. i personally liked gta IV's better but my all time favorite would have to be Vice City's radio stations. In GTA V there's a couple of songs i like on some of the stations but most of the time im just switching stations and catching the same couple of songs over and over again. I wish they took a page out of saint's row playbook and let you make your own mix tape of songs for the radio.

Yes Saint's Row damn near perfected the radio idea.

I wish they'd let you have a custom radio station that uses the music played from a device you have in your xbox or from your hardrive,

So like for example when you are playing music through your dashboard, it turns off when you get out of a car and mutes/lowers at the correct times etc.

Under 25 and I am not keen on the music, there are various tracks from all the stations I like but that's it. I usually put the talk radio on or leave it on soulwax.

I AM 25 and personally would like to have seen a Saints Row Ala Mix Tape kind of feature where I can put a handful of the songs onto a private list, and listen to only those...

Don't like a lot of the music selection for this game.

21 and only listen to the two rock based stations. Though I'll dabble in Rebel Radio when Convoy is playing.

My favorite song is the Future track. Sad that it is not on the soundtrack. But overall the stations are shit. Needs some good metal station. Too many Spanish and country crap.

This, sadly, there is so many but almost everything is crap, no metal (GTA IV), no DnB (GTA 3), i mean really? This day and age this is two of the biggest genre's, there is some good classic (gangster?) rap, but that was in SA aswell, same tracks too but Dre and NWA classics are just classics and you cant really update those for obvious reasons. There isn't even any dubstep which is pretty popular right now.

So yea i played with the radio stations for a few days but then made my own "GTA" style playlist with a bit of all of the above but mostly metal, i miss out on the news which i do miss, but i get music all the time instead and the game is one of those that mutes music when it needs to for cutscenes etc, i like those as not all do it
