I almost always have it on Los Santos Rock Radio. Sometimes it's Channel X, but Rock Radio is what I tune to when I steal a car and the biatch had the nerve to leave it on that damn pop station
 
2013-10-14 04:52:46 PM  
I find myself listening to the talk stations because I love JB Smoove & Danny McBride.

How come I can't just use the iFruit app to have it play the music from my phone via bluetooth?

Oh I like that.

I have all the Vice City and San Andreas sound tracks which include the talk show, news feeds and commercials.

I like the country / survivalist stations that you get up north in Blaine County. They're hilarious.

They'd be even funnier if they weren't closer to truth than they are to satire.

They all really suck compared to the prior games.

My local NPR station has a reporter with the sur name Lazlow. Yes, EVERY TIME I hear it, I draw it out in that slow sarcastic tone from Vice City: LAAAZZZLOOOW

/CSB

I have no idea why they had the country station ranked so high, every song absent Convoy is terrible. Freaking General Lee for Johnny Cash? SERIOUSLY?
 
2013-10-14 06:49:34 PM  
Reading more they didn't choose California soul for the low downs best track? Come on.

Ya. Im just not feeling the music choices on this one. It seams they went to quantity not quality. If they really wanted to do LA type stations. They would do a good oldies (kearth) A good alt station (kroq) and they have the rap and pop stations. Then something like a klos or even go older pirate radio

I usually have it off. I've heard all five songs on Channel X. Los Santos Rock Radio isn't the kind of rock I was looking for. Aaand I don't listen to techno, rap, or Rhianna. Sucks, but I still love the game.

Count me among those who thought the radio sucked this time around. I usually listened to the Soul station but it has like 5 songs (as do most of the stations). Just meh.

San Andreas and Vice City will be hard to top (or even match) for soundtrack selection

Yeah, it really sucks.  Other than I rock to the Phil Collins and the Suicidal Tendencies ...  (and I have to admit, I actually knew that the Don Johnson song was Don Johnson, somehow....)

everything else on there, I'm pretty much unfamiliar with.  There's a version of Gin and Juice that comes up every now and again I think. Maybe.  That might've just been my neighbors blasting, though.
 
2013-10-14 07:20:37 PM  
West Coasts Classics is great, and I really dig the ADHD song, but the talk stations felt repetitive quickly and no Metal/Hard Rock channel sucks.

serial_crusher: How come I can't just use the iFruit app to have it play the music from my phone via bluetooth?


Rockstar appears to refuse to use stuff thought up by other developers for their open world games.  Like being able to create a mixed track station of music you like or the ability to walk around in listen to it
9or any other sort of map system, melee system, etc).

The Chakra Attack talk radio show. I dunno how or why I stopped what I was doing in the game to listen to this, but it killed me:

2013-10-14 07:25:10 PM  
Oh and yes, i hate nearly all the stations except for talk radio and suprisingly enough the techno station. It drives me up the farking wall that GTA refuses to have a metal station cause that awful punk station is a terrible substitute.
 
2013-10-14 07:27:55 PM  
I love punk, but the punk station sucks due to lack of variety. There are like 5 songs total and no other content. How it's #5 on this list I do not know.

There's no techno in the GTA V soundtrack.
 
2013-10-14 07:45:56 PM  
I'm disappointed there's no classical station.
 
2013-10-14 07:46:36 PM  
Other than like Suicidal and Black flag. It just is not there. If they wanted to do a mock station of LA they needed to do a mock KNAC. Its just not that good. LA has alot of rock. Or at least it did. But LA has a history of rock. gtaiv had great music. You could listen to it over again. This one. You just get sick of it. Like I said. They seam to want to have alot of station rather than a fewer good ones. With more than like 3-5 songs per channel.
 
2013-10-14 07:47:52 PM  
Many commenters on this thread:   This station has like only five songs.

Article:  241 tracks over 15 stations.

Well that's still only 16 songs per station, but probably feels like five after you've heard them a bunch of times.

That might be. But what ever algorithm they are using to random the stations. Is not working very well.
 
2013-10-14 07:53:44 PM  
Reading that alot of the development was done in another country. Its not surprising that its alot of rap,RB and techo type music. They must think thats all we listen to here.
 
2013-10-14 08:08:48 PM  
It's talk radio or nothing. If I want to listen to music I will mute the tv and play my own stuff rather than listening to the same hour of stuff over and over again.

First time I got hurt I looked all over for a Cluckin' Bell but the only thing I could find to recharge my health was a Sprunk machine.  I'm finding this one kind of disappointing.  The cars are all glued to the road, I'm too fragile, and I miss San Fierro and Las Venturas.  I keep feeling like it's a beta and maybe I'll get to play the whole thing someday.

When I lived in La they where alt. They where the alt in the country. Thats before CBS bought the and turned them into crap. Poorman forever
 
2013-10-14 08:47:03 PM  
"something for ALMOST everyone", count me in as one of the "almost". The rock station plays Eddie Murphy and Don fuggin Johnson beside Def Leopard ffs. There is very little for almost everyone unless everyone loves songs that are inundated with the racist n****r epithet. The few songs I enjoyed I had never heard before on the obscure stations and the pathetic thing is as a pure bred white male headbanger my favorite station is The Low Down. But then who doesn't love momma G.
 
2013-10-14 08:50:41 PM  
They just missed the mark on LA radio. Its not all rap. Alot of rap but not all. Its just not as good as the others.

Well, I'm not young, but I've only lived here for about eight years, so my exposure is likely different.  If you were listening to them before that, they certainly could have been a different station.  There's not much market for a true alt station anymore, which is why 103.1 is now a Spanish station.

Meh.  You tend to bounce around the stations in single-player as you're usually jumping into different vehicles and may not always have your mind on changing the station (like when the cops are trying to ventilate your skull) and you feel it even less in Online if you're doing activities and whatnot.  I just wish they had added more talk radio shows.  The three that are on there are funny, but the shows on Public Liberty Radio and We Know The Truth in GTA IV absolutely crush these shows.
 
2013-10-14 09:12:09 PM  
KROQ used to be an independent station. Thats where you went to listen to like Divo the Ramones, Dead Kennedy's. 103.1 Used to be called Pirate Radio. Like Hair bands and hard rock. 105.5 was KNAC Hard rock. Pantera, Obituary, that kind of stuff. 97.1 used to be classic rock. KLOS used to play more that the same 10 songs over and over again.

Little LA history. KROQ used to have a show called Love Lines. Hosted by DR Drew and a guy named The PoorMan. Livelines was like 11 to 2am Something like that. Poorman got into a fight with Kevin and Bean. I forgot what Poorman did to K&B but K&B went on  the air at like 5am and gave out Poormans address telling all there listeners that he was having a party. The movie Project X is loosely based on the riot that happened.

Yeah, having Double Clef FM on while driving on a busy sidewalk in GTA 3 is one of my more fond GTA memories.
 
2013-10-14 09:13:07 PM  
Good god, the GTA 5 radio stations suck. I suppose if one is urban, they're probably good. Aside from the talk stations, which aren't as good as SA/VC, the radio is farking horrible. SR 3 and 4 both had better music, with classical to boot. Some worked very well when going on a rampage of violence.

Hopefully, they'll adjust the stations when they do their first DLC.

Yes I would pay for DLC of more stations.
