Grand Theft Auto 5′s soundtrack is made up of 240 tracks spread across 15 radio stations and two talk stations. Rockstar has released some audio samplers of the stations for you to check out. Prepare your ears for some open world sound-candy.
In a Rolling Stone feature, Rockstar soundtrack supervisor, Ivan Pavlovich confirmed the final song count, and added, “It’s the largest soundtrack that we’ve done, and the largest score that we’ve done. For this game, which is set in our version of modern day Los Angeles, what was important for us was to capture that feeling of L.A. and California.
“We approached the radio stations as the musical soundscape [you experience] as you fly into L.A. One of the things we’ve never done in a GTA game before is a pop station; exploring that made so much sense in the context of L.A.”
