Grand Theft Auto / A Soundtrack Masterpiece

Grand Theft Auto is undoubtedly one of the biggest game franchises to have ever been created. I’m a huge fan of the game series myself and geekily waited in line for the midnight launch of GTA:V on Tuesday. Since then, I’ve been exploring the fictional version of LA, attempting to drive around without scratching my latest set of wheels whilst listening to well over 240 licensed songs. It got me thinking how great the franchise’s soundtracks are. Especially in those games that have been released after GTA:III. (Before this, many of the songs were created by Rockstar and are by unknown artists/made up bands and there was a clear lack of licensed tracks) These include GTA: Vice City, GTA: IV and obviously, GTA: V. Here’s some of my favourite songs that have featured on the many radio stations over the years.
