Bounce FM is a radio station in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, hosted by The Funktipus (voiced by George Clinton) that plays funk, disco, soul and R&B.

Description[]

Oh! What did I do last night?
Bounce! The party never stops on Bounce.
It burns when I pee!
The party on Bounce, Bounce, Bounce.
Damn! I gotta go to the clinic!
— Bounce FM

Bounce is the station to have a party with in San Andreas. It has many of the most significant acts of the 1970s and 1980s from funk and disco. Three of the songs in its playlist are featured in the rhythm minigames of GTA San Andreas.

Bounce's idents make humorous comments about the hedonistic "anything goes" nature of its parties, such as "the party doesn't stop until everyone's pregnant" and "don't hide in the bathroom! Share your stash with everyone, baby!"

Bounce adopts an Afrofuturistic identity, nicknaming the station the "Party Ship".

Bounce's host, The Funktipus, is voiced by legendary funk artist George Clinton. He makes many references in his dialogue to lyrics of Clinton's band Parliament-Funkadelic, which was one of the main driving forces in the Afrofuturism artistic genre. The Funktipus is a jolly, laid-back, party-loving guy who makes humorous comments, such as when he urges listeners "now put on some condoms in your ears, because these songs will fuck your mind up!"

This is the favorite radio station of the Ballas, Da Nang Boys, Michelle Cannes, as well as of Sean "Sweet" Johnson and Melvin "Big Smoke" Harris, as evidenced when the player enters their respective vehicles.

Trivia[]

  • Area 53 host Marvin Trill phones into the station, believing "The Party Ship" (which is the station's nickname) to be an actual spaceship and enquiring as to how he can board.
  • Some of the songs featured on the station, such as Ohio Players's "Funky Worm" and Zapp's "I Can Make You Dance", were an important backbone to the G-Funk genre which originated on the west coast of the United States in the early 1990s, in the same era that the events of GTA San Andreas took place.
  • "West Coast Poplock" and Lakeside's "Fantastic Voyage" can also be heard in the film "South Central", a film that GTA San Andreas takes influence from. "South Central" was released in 1992, the same year as the events of the game.
  • The version of MFSB's "Love Is the Message" that is featured on this station is a shortened version.
  • During the San Andreas Anniversary Weekend, it was possible to find a T-Shirt with the Bounce FM logo in the Special Crate drops in Grand Theft Auto Online.
  • The station is mentioned by DJ Pooh between songs on West Coast Classics in The Contract update for GTA Online. He says that he and Dr. Dre used to love listening to the station while cruising around San Andreas.
