      I damn near shat myself when I saw Opeth. What a Horrible Night to Have a Curse is one my my favorite black dahlia tracks.

      OMG... that's awesome

      Damn, on second thought, why the hell did they cram Wolfmother in with an otherwise amazing station?

    This game is everything GTA IV should have been and more.
    Move aside Rockstar and let THQ and Volitions through.

    Wow, I really like these songs and all the variety. They seem more down-to-earth and a lot more common than songs from previous GTA games (which btw created a lot of their own music in LCS which was quite odd).

    My Chemical Romance/Panic at the Discp = girly emo shit
    other than that, pretty solid, but Vice City still has the better soundtrack imo.

      So? You expect to like every song on the whole soundtrack?

      It's variety.

      If you hadn't noticed Zero they were on an emo/punk/pop radio station, this game has it all and i am pretty glad they have MCR and Panic in there in some way, what i have come to learn is while i don't like the songs in reality they often work very well in the game.

        I was just pointing it out, it is good to have variety, I am just pointing out what I dont like, simple as that. Also I could care less what people listen to these days as long as I hear a song that I think is good, wether its trendy or not makes no diffrence.

          I have to agree with Zero, I could give two shits what songs are popular by the masses, if I enjoy some song and its not being popular Its good for me.

      Yeah, well Vice City probably had one of the best soundtracks in the history of gaming. It took place in Miami in the 80s, how could you go wrong musically?

    They really need a station that just plays Darkside of the Moon or Rush's Moving Pictures non-stop.
