GTA 5 Radio and Soundtrack Leaked — Lazlow Is Back

UPDATE Saturday, 3:30 PM. Sony has issued an official statement apologizing to Rockstar for the leak. The full statement follows:

Regrettably, some people who downloaded the digital pre-order of Grand Theft Auto V through the PlayStation Store in Europe were able to access certain GTA V assets. These assets were posted online. We have since removed the digital pre-order file from the PlayStation Store in Europe. We sincerely apologize to Rockstar and GTA fans across the world who were exposed to the spoiler content. GTA V is one of the most highly anticipated games of the year with a very passionate following, and we’re looking forward to a historic launch on September 17.

In addition, it appears Rockstar has now shut down the original GTA Forums board devoted to the discussion.


NOTE: Everything on this page almost certainly constitutes spoilers for GTA V’s radio content. Read at your own risk, and stop reading entirely if you want to remain tabula rasa for Grand Theft Auto V.

The word today is that Grand Theft Auto 5 became available for preloading from the PlayStation Network in some territories, and that naturally led to some enterprising Internet people pulling the 18 gigabytes of stuff onto their computers and sifting through it. Obviously, the game isn’t playable yet, but it seems as if they’ve managed to dig up tons of audio.

Said audio files include a 43-hour large MP3 of undetermined length (VLC says 43 hours but the file data is wonky) that would appear to contain the entirety of GTA 5′s radio content. Redditor BankerShanker has been hard at work compiling a list of music tracks, though it is obviously incomplete since, again, this file is many hours long.

But perhaps more interesting than the tracks is the stations themselves and the personalities that are on them. Details continue to slip out as people dig through the audio files. Here are some of those details, but be warned, they may be spoilers:

  • A talk show hosted by a character named Dr. Ray, who is played by comedian JB Smoove. It’s a typically bizarre GTA radio show.
  • Mama G aka Pam Grier DJs Lowdown FM, which is of course a soul station.
  • A punk station on which the DJs (there are two of them) are pretty mad about having to run ads and syndicated news segments.
  • “Blain County Radio: the voice of the real America. The America that likes guns, guts and giving wussies the finger.” This is talk radio, but apparently not political; there’s a promo on it for a show about semen.
  • Lazlow is back with a new talk show. Has co-host named Michelle, and they argue a lot.

There’s a gang of other folks going through the file right now, and so as the night progresses more pieces will likely fall into place over there. Just keep in mind that GTA radio in-game sometimes has breaking news announcements about things you do, so there might be some spoilers in there.

That said, here’s the track listing BankerShanker has compiled thus far:

On August 24, 2013 at 8:12 pm

On August 24, 2013 at 8:26 pm

Wow, way to post a spoiler in your headline, regardless of how obvious it was.


On August 25, 2013 at 4:49 am

I just want tommy the nightmare smith back


On August 25, 2013 at 11:14 am

I’m so stoked for the Punk station!


On August 26, 2013 at 8:31 am

I wish they’d mix in some original music GTA 3-style. Or go 100% orignal. That was one of the best things about the game – created total immersion into that world.


On August 26, 2013 at 12:43 pm

Ummm Rick James and Eddie Murphy are not classic rock? there probably in an 80s station


On August 26, 2013 at 6:08 pm

If this IS in fact the soundtrack…..EW!


On August 27, 2013 at 3:49 am

WHY IS THE PUNK LIST SO SHORT? atleast the have black flag.


On August 27, 2013 at 4:32 pm

Ok from this list … essentially the soundtrack sucks compared to other GTA games… but Ive seen the Game play spoilers 15 minutes ago… and Im blown away …. GTA 5 is going to be amazing. I love spoilers and now I have even more to look forward to just knowing how awesome it is !!!


On August 29, 2013 at 12:08 am

Looks Like I’ll be driving with the radio off; just like I did in the last Grand Theft Auto [for the brief time I owned it].


On August 29, 2013 at 8:56 pm

Okay, so this game has been what.. 5 years in the waiting and this is the music they choose? People like 2 chainz? Come on now, no mgk, no Eminem, no Dmx, but this total s… Pfft, please. Also rock station… Yet you don’t have more queen, Bon Jovi, old Metallica.. Nothing, especially no Avenged Sevenfold. My god this thing is terrible.


On September 1, 2013 at 2:43 pm

I can’t wait 4 gta 5 i’m hungry 4 it


On September 1, 2013 at 4:13 pm

It’s not the whole thing, no way that is 240 songs. It says thats the leaked soundtrack thus far


On September 18, 2013 at 9:04 am

the punk rock station is awesome, but i dont understand why they don’t make the playlists a lot longer considering how many hours we spend driving in the game!


On November 14, 2014 at 11:43 am

Bullcrap there’s no Bon Jovi, Avenged Sevenfold or even breaking Benjamin in the damn game!
