GTA1CDCredits

The CD of GTA with the credits for the soundtrack listed.

The first Grand Theft Auto, also commonly called GTA, has seven radio stations and a police radio track, all of which can be heard once the player enters a car, setting a feature that would become a mainstay in the game series.

All the songs in this soundtrack are original creations produced by the Rockstar staff (none of them are licensed content).

Most of the names of songs or the radio station names are never mentioned in-game, the exceptions are Head Radio FM and The Fergus Buckner Show FM (also, the DJ of Radio '76 FM names his radio "Funk FM"). However, the soundtrack is listed in the booklet which comes with the game.

The radio stations that the player can listen in GTA are as follows:

Technical Info[]

On the PC version of the game disc, the radio station audio is stored in standard CD audio tracks. As a result, PC players can remove the CD once the game is loaded and replace it with an audio CD. The next time the character enters a vehicle, a song from the CD will randomly play.

The radio stations can also be played outside the game by putting the game disc into a normal audio CD player, as long as track 1 (which contains the game data) is skipped over.

Radio stations[]

The songs are listed in the same order as they appear in the game manual.
As all the songs are original creations, for all of them the year of release is that of GTA: 1997.
Authors of the songs, at the side, in superscript.
