Other Soundtracks

Loading Theme

This track is heard when loading the game at any point. Depending on how long the game takes to load (further depending on the platform), the soundtrack has different parts. The loading theme used was created by Tangerine Dream, named "Mona Da Vinci", from 2011.

Pause Menu Theme

When the game is paused, after around 1 minute, a pause menu theme will begin to play. It will play in any of the menu options, be it map, gallery, or friends. It is also heard when creating the GTA Online player. It is not heard in GTA Online. The pause menu theme was created by Tangerine Dream, named "Greyhound". It is not heard anywhere else in-game. A full-mix of the soundtrack can be found in the files.

Flying Theme

When flying in a vehicle without the radio on (but the music volume on full), eventually a flying theme will play. It will become more and more intense as the player flies around. It begins to fade once the player nears the ground, or fully lands. This plays in both GTA V and GTA Online. Land vehicles which can fly, such as the Deluxo and Oppressor, do not activate this soundtrack.

Wanted Level Soundtrack

Once the player gains 3 stars or more, a Wanted Level Soundtrack will begin to play. The soundtracks can only be heard on foot, or in a vehicle when the radio is turned off.


At 3 stars, the soundtracks will remain low pace, "calm" and a small beat will be heard. The soundtrack usually introduces itself with a small rhythm or a high pitched noise, in most cases, this will lead to a long, slow, low-intensity beat.

At 4 stars, the soundtrack will change its pace. A strong beat will be introduced, or if there already was one, it will become more intense and notable. High pitched, long electronic sound effects found on 3 stars usually fade away, to make the beat stand out.

At 5 stars, the soundtrack is at its most intense beast. Not much of a notable difference can be heard between the 4th and 5th star; in most cases, it takes several seconds to hear a notable difference in pace. Small, quick rhythms will become notable, and the beat of drums will vary.

After 5 stars, a section known as the "Cooldown Zone" occurs. This happens when the player begins to lose the police. In simpler form, it reduces its pace, rhythm and returns back to its 3 star form. It will become much more intense and quiet, and if the player goes underground, for example, in the subways with a 5 star wanted level, the sound is echoed more for effect, adding a "tip-toe" noise effect. Once the stars are lost, a "whisper"-style whistle will occur, and the soundtrack will end.

Some of the following tracks are exclusive to the player's location. For example, some may only play in Los Santos, and some may only play in Blaine County.

So far, in the original release of GTA V (and GTA Online), there are 11 wanted level themes.
