Deleted Songs[]

Upon inspection of the "american.gxt" files of GTA IV and The Lost and Damned, the following songs are found, which suggests they were due to appear in the game but did not make it to the final version.

A French preview suggested that two more songs by The Rolling Stones would be used on Liberty Rock Radio. However, only one track is present in the american.gxt file. [ref?]

Additionally, the following song was mentioned in the press releases, but didn't make the cut: [ref?]

Prominent Appearances in Gameplay[]

Radio Station[]

Individual Tracks[]

  • "Cry" by Godley & Creme is featured in the PC trailer for Grand Theft Auto IV.
  • "Wild Side" by Mötley Crüe features in the second trailer for The Lost and Damned.
  • "Highway Star" by Deep Purple automatically plays during "Clean and Serene", the first mission of The Lost and Damned, when the player picks Billy Grey up from rehab.
  • "Dominon" by The Sisters of Mercy, "I Wanna Be Your Dog" by The Stooges, "Remedy" by The Black Crowes, "Heaven and Hell" by Black Sabbath and "Jailbreak" by Thin Lizzy play in the background during Iggy's dialogue in-between songs.
  • "New York Groove" by Hello plays during the end credits of GTA IV.

Gallery[]

There are six billboards[22] (some of which are double-sided) throughout the city in GTA IV and posters[23] in Star Junction exclusively in The Ballad of Gay Tony.

Trivia[]

  • The guitar squeal heard in the main stinger is derived from the opening riff of "I Don't Wanna Be Me" by Type O Negative. Other stingers include the opening few seconds of "Dead in Hollywood" by the Murderdolls, the bass riff of "No Way" by Korn, and the lead riff from "Evil Has No Boundaries" by Slayer.
  • Another stinger makes the statement, "When the rock on your radio sounds like rap... I'm sorry, did I say rap? I meant sh--." This is a take on the trend of rap rock and nu metal that was common in American rock music during the late 1990s and early 2000s.
  • "I Wanna Be Your Dog" by The Stooges is incorrectly credited by ZiT solely to Iggy Pop.
  • When "Five to One" comes on, Iggy sometimes introduces The Doors as "The band that Vice City tried to arrest". This is a reference to a Doors concert in Miami (Vice City's real counterpart) in 1969 at the Dinner Key Auditorium where singer Jim Morrison allegedly exposed himself to the audience along with using obscenities which resulted in his arrest and a court trial in 1970.
  • During his monologues, Iggy Pop can say: "You know what I hate? Peanut butter. It sticks to your nipples". This is a reference to the concerts of The Stooges, where Iggy Pop was coated with peanut butter.
  • The radio station is described by Juliette Lewis, the host of Radio Broker, as "a radio station for posers that is playing bad rock from 30 years ago".
  • A sticker[24] of the station's logo can be seen on the abandoned skateboarding store near Popular Street Unit 124 in Grand Theft Auto V.
  • "Edge of Seventeen" by Stevie Nicks briefly appears in the The Cayo Perico Heist update for Grand Theft Auto Online as Jimmy Iovine's (the producer of the song) ringtone.
  • The station has the same frequency as blonded Los Santos 97.8 FM from Grand Theft Auto V and GTA Online.
