Reasons why GTA IV is great # 4: The tunes
The in-game radio stations have always been a major selling point of the Grand Theft Auto series; GTA IV is naturally no exception. In the words of Rockstar Game’s founder and executive producer Sam Houser: "the amount of eclectic music in Grand Theft Auto IV goes above and beyond anything we have been able to do before."
The number of tracks on offer is truly astounding, with the 18 radio stations covering a wide breadth of musical genres. Featured bands and artists include Aphex Twin, Busta Rhymes, Z.Z. Top, The Smashing Pumpkins, Kanye West, Black Sabbath, The Black Crowes, Jean Michel Jarre, David Bowie, R.E.M. and Queen (and that’s barely scratching the surface).
You can also download any of the game’s 150 songs from Amazon’s MP3 Store by using Niko’s in-game mobile phone.
