- "Hardcore lives on in the city where it all began. Jimmy Gestapo hosts a selection of the best punk and hardcore classics."
- — GTA IV website
- "Steeped in a tradition of punk and metal, Liberty City Hardcore now features a new radio show hosted by DJ Max Cavalera of the legendary bands Sepultura, Soulfly and Cavalera Conspiracy."
- — The Lost and Damned website
In GTA IV, the station is hosted by hardcore punk musician Jimmy Gestapo and plays hardcore punk from the New York Hardcore music scene. In particular, it appears to be paying homage to the scene surrounding CBGB, an iconic bar where most of the bands featured have performed at one point or another. This is further evidenced by the station originating from the in-game equivalent to Manhattan's East Village, where CBGB was located.

- In GTA IV, Liberty City Hardcore is a dynamic station, meaning that music, comments, idents, and commercials play in a random order. The TLAD version is looped, meaning all music, comments, and idents are in the same order.
- Occasionally Jimmy Gestapo can be heard going into on-air rants against "California kids and their parking lot punk tours", a reference to the popular punk-based touring music festival Warped Tour and how many of the bands that played at Warped Tour in the 2000's were California-based.
