Listening to quiet music can seriously damage your credibility!
— It's Unleashed FM

It's Unleashed FM is a radio station featured in Grand Theft Auto. It plays hard rock, alternative rock and big beat.

Description

As the rest of the radios of GTA, the idea was to showcase a particular style of music, in this case heavy metal/hard rock, with fictional band Stikki Fingers' "4 Letter Love" being produced in the style of AC/DC and hard rock bands. The Hounds' "Let It Out" seems to feature more of an alternative rock/power pop sound, while Bleeding Stumps' "Just Do It" features a more electronic/industrial sound comparable to big beat.

Brian Baglow was responsible of writting the lyrics of some of the songs in the game, including those from "4 Letter Love", which have crude profanity ("So beat me, bite me/ Now whip me, fuck me/ Come on, wank me/ Now go down and suck me"). In the words of Baglow "It was an 18-certificate game so we could get away with a fair amount. It was unique, there’s not so many jobs where you can go into your work, come home and go «Well today I wrote the lyrics for a really, really incredibly blasphemous, sacrilegious and generally filthy heavy metal song»".[1]

Trivia

  • Stikki Fingers' "4 Letter Love" plays briefly in GTA 2, in Lithium FM, after the first song, when Spaz Funbags says "let's have another hit".
  • The Hounds' "Let It Out" is the N°2 in the Top 5 of Head Radio.
    • The song samples Deee-Lite's "Groove Is In The Heart".
  • Bleeding Stump's "Just Do It" is the N°3 in that ranking.
  • While the frequency listed for this station in the game manual is 103.5, it is listed as 93.5 on the game disc itself.
  • The opening skit on "Just Do It" is a reference to the 1990's trend of rock bands hiding blooper recordings within their songs (such as "Clown" by Korn).
