For those of you who are fans of Grand Theft Auto video game series, Rockstar Games released Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition digitally tomorrow (November 11) and in physical formats on December 7. They also revealed the full soundtrack and a few rock songs were dropped.
The definitive edition will offer improved versions of GTA 3, GTA: Vice City and GTA San Andreas. One of the best parts of driving around a stolen vehicle in the game is listening to awesome songs on the various radio stations, and the aforementioned games had a great selection of rock and metal tracks, and even legendary rockers who voiced imaginary radio DJs. .
The station soundtracks are mostly the same this time around, but a few changes have been made.
Vice-city The first rock radio station, “V-Rock”, is hosted by talk show host Jeffrey Crawford “Lazlow” Jones. On the station, you’ll still hear Judas Priest, Motley Crue, Megadeth, Autograph, Twisted Sister, Anthrax, Iron Maiden, Slayer, Tesla, David Lee Roth, and the game’s own fictional band, Lovefist.
According to the original City of vice soundtrack, songs that have been removed from “V-Rock” for the new edition are “Bark at the Moon” by Ozzy Osbourne, “Cum on Feel the Noise” by Quiet Riot, “She Sells Sanctuary” by The Cult , “Working for the Weekend”, “God Blessed Video” from Alcatrazz and “Fist Fury” from the Loveliest fiction.
The soundtrack of San Andreas’ The classic rock station “K-DST” is a bit more unique, as host Tommy “The Nightmare” Smith was voiced by none other than Guns N ‘Roses frontman Axl Rose. Although he was playing a made-up character, Rose made a reference to GN’R on his show at one point, saying, “I’ve said it before… All we need is a bit of patience.”
Either way, on the station you can still catch songs from Foghat, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Heart, KISS, Grand Funk Railroad, The Who, Boston, David Bowie, Eddie Money, Humble Pie, Billy Idol, Toto , Rod Stewart, Lynyrd Skynyrd and America. Joe Cocker’s “Woman to Woman” and Tom Petty’s “Runnin ‘Down a Dream” have been dropped for the new release.
San Andreas actually has two rock stations, however. The second, “Radio X”, specializes in alternative rock and includes Guns N ‘Roses, Soundgarden, Alice in Chains, Stone Temple Pilots, Jane’s Addiction, Faith No More, Helmet, Danzig, The Stone Roses, L7, Primal Scream , Living Color and Depeche Mode.
Osbourne was snubbed again, with his track “Hellraiser” missing from the new track list, as well as “Killing in the Name” by Rage Against the Machine.
