Deleted songs

Upon inspection of GTA IV's and The Lost and Damned's "american.gxt", 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 a third song by The Rolling Stones would be used on Liberty Rock Radio. However, only two tracks are present in the american.gxt file.

Trivia

  • One of the station's stingers contains the opening few seconds of "Dead in Hollywood" by the Murderdolls. Other stingers contain the opening riff of "I Don't Wanna Be Me" by Type O Negative and the bass riff of "No Way" by Korn.
  • Another stinger makes the statement, "When all the rock on your radio sounds like rap... I'm sorry, did I say rap? I meant sh--. It's time to come home to Liberty Rock Radio." This is a take on the trend of rap rock and nu metal that was common in American rock music during the 1990's and early 2000's.
  • "Dominon" by The Sisters of Mercy, "I Wanna Be Your Dog" by The Stooges and "Remedy" by The Black Crowes play in the background during Iggy's dialogue in-between songs.
  • "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.
  • A sticker of the station's logo can be seen on the abandoned skateboarding store near Popular Street Unit 124 in Grand Theft Auto V.
