The official soundtrack for Grand Theft Auto Vice City is by far the largest
soundtrack of licensed material there has ever been for a videogame, movie...
just about anything..** In total there are 79 songs in the entire sountrack
(two are original tunes), and there are also other tracks containing DJ musings
and commercials (which are not listed on the CD packages, but are in the liner
notes).  This will let you know which commercials you are getting.
Take Note - There are more songs in the game than are included on the soundtrack!

** Warning: Not a heavily researched assumption :)

The soundtrack consists of seven volumes, each a seperate CD containing
selections from a radio station in the game itself.  The volumes are not
reproductions of the radio stations in the game.  They are meant to be
listened to and thought of as individual albums and are "hosted" by the DJ
from the radio station in this spirit - in other words, the DJ chatter on the
CD's is not taken from the game.  The way they are presented seems to be that
the radio station has put out a compilation CD of their most popular tracks.

Each album follows a similar pattern.  It starts of with an introduction from
the DJ, then goes through about half of the songs, more DJ commentary with
station identification, then the other half of the songs, then closing comments
and two commercials.  Wildstyle Pirate Radio's album is a notable exception,
with more DJ chatter than all of the others.

The music is, of course, 80's oriented.  But it actually varies more than you
would think. There's some '70's stuff thrown in, even a pinch of disco.  Most
of the stuff on Espantoso is from the 40's and 50's.  Nothing is newer than
1986 though (as it should be).  And yes, all the songs are here in their entirety,
with many breaking the 6 minute barrier and the longest track being almost nine
minutes (Super Strut by Deodato).  The tracks are pretty well seperated by genre,
with Wave 103 and Flash FM overlapping the most.  They even talk about that in the
liner notes for Wave 103, how it's hard to tell pop from new wave.  If you ask
me, Talk Talk was way more "new wave" than Corey Hart!!  All the other albums are
broken up better and have more distinct sounds.  It's also interesting how they
didnt take the biggest hits from the bands, often picking tracks that you would
not expect.  There's bound to be stuff on here you haven't heard before.  I
recommend getting the box set, broaden your musical horizons why dontcha.

People are wondering - Where's the Buggles???  Sorry, they aren't on the
soundtrack.  Neither is Gary Numan.  They're in the game though.  I've put
the "missing" tracks under their respective stations.

Each CD makes mention of the fact that you can unlock a cheat code by inserting
the CD in your drive and going to www.vicecityradio.com.  When you are at the
website select an album name from the bottom scroll bar, then select ConnecteD
nera the top.  Click to verify your CD.  The content available consists of a
cheat code, a wallpaper image, three screen shots (all of which you've seen
before), a screen saver, and finally a quicktime movie clip (which are not
available right now).  The screen savers and wallpapers are nice, but you're
not going to be buying these CD's for the bonus content (hopefully), it's not
all that great.  See the individual album info for it's cheat code.

Speaking of the codes, Rockstar warns you that you CANNOT turn these off during
SAVED GAME.  So for God's sake dont save with the pink cars cheat on.

I've recieved a lot of e-mail about this faq.  Thanks to everyone who wrote
in.  I've recieved a couple of questions numerous times and will address them
here for others... because they're Frequently Asked Questions, right?

Here's the most frequently asked question:


What is the song on station "x", the one they play right before/after song

Easily answered.  All of the songs are listed in the order they are played
on the radio station in the manual (sans commercials).  If this doesnt help
then see the bottom of the faq where I have added the running order of the
radio stations with commercials.


Another frequently asked question involves "Never Say Never":

:Hey, first of all that's an excellent piece of work.  I just wanted to
:you know about one oversight. (And please, please don't take this as
:criticism.)  WAVE FM, or maybe VROCK has a song called "I might like
:better (If we slept together)".  The only reason I know this is that
:one of my favorite all-time tracks, and it toatally blew my mind that
:Rockstar included it.
:However, I have no idea who performs it.  If you find out, could you
:let me
:know? Thanks,

This song is actually called "Never Say Never" by Romeo Void.  Unfortunately I
cannot find anyone who carries the original EP or their older LP's, but they
have a newish album from 1992 called "Warm, In Your Coat" that says it
contains "Never Say Never".


Another frequently asked question is actually more of a complaint, here's a
typical e-mail:

:I can't believe you say that Vice City has the largest soundtrack at 79 songs.
:Final Fantasy VII OST has 85 songs.
:Final Fantasy IX OST has 108 songs.
:The Final Fantasy X OST has 91 songs.
:Getting off the FF trail, we see...
:Shenmue 2 has 83 songs.
:Rockman (Megaman) 1~6 Family Computer Soundtrack has 152 songs.
:The Biohazard -CODE Veronica- OST has 93 songs.
:And because you threw in "just about anything"...
:Cowboy Bebop Boxed Set OST has 96 songs.
:Neon Genesis Evangelion has 82 songs.
:So please, get off your high horse and Vice City loving and do some research
:before you make stupid assumptions and spread misinformation. Good day.

Vice City's soundtrack is all (-2) LICENSED tracks, and it is in that way
that I claimed it was the largest soundtrack.  It's almost like a Time/Life
compilation, and almost as big!  The soundtracks you mentioned have little or
no licensed tracks.  There's a difference between original tunes done for a
soundtrack (like Tangerine Dream's soundtrack for the movie "Sorceror") and a
soundtrack that contains entirely or mostly lilcensed tracks (like GTA VC's).
I admit to being amazed by the amount of licensed tracks being included in a
videogame, but how does this make me biased agianst various Japanese
games/shows?  Some of you out there assumed that because I enjoyed Vice City
that I had something against Japanese games, movies, books, etc.  Talk about
making stupid assumptions!  I'm actually an "older" first-generation player
so I'm not into the us vs. them culture of current game players.  I actually
have played FF games more than the GTA series.  Hell, the games I've played
the most in my entire life have probably been the Civilization series, not to
mention Sim City... I feel sorry for people that paint themselves into a
specific game-genre corner.

As far as licensed material goes, the VC soundtrack is "probably" the biggest,
or at least was the biggest at the time.  No one has been able to provide proof
of a larger amount of licensed songs for anything but a Time/Life compilation -
which is NOT a soundtrack.  However, I'm hearing now that the new THPS games
are going to have more than a hundred licensed tracks.


What are the songs played in the Vice City trailers?

Trailer #3 (October) - "Al-Naafiysh (The Soul)" by Hashim.

Trailer #2 (September) - "I Ran" by Flock of Seagulls.

Trailer #1 (August) - "Summer Madness" by Kool and the Gang.

What are the songs played in the Vice City commercials?

Should be one of the above.   The only commercial I've seen had "I Ran" in it.


Which song is played during the intro to the game?

I'm not sure if this has a name.  It's definitely not on the o.s.t. - however it
IS on the recently released "Greatest Hits" CD.  As far as I know it is
something written specifically for the intro, like the song in the intro for
GTA 3.


What song is played during the credits?

I had the flu really bad when I beat the game and I honestly dont remember.
It seems I can foggily recall that it was an instrumental type thing like the
intro track.  But... I'll have to go back and beat it again.  Until then...

"i read the bottom of the faq, and you seemed baffled by the fact that
"i wanna be a cowboy" is on the soundtrack, but not in the game.  it's in the
game- this song plays during the ending credits :)" - iworshipsatan


I really like that instrumental song with the phat keyboards!!!  I think it's on
Emotion... What is it?

That would be "Crockett's Theme" from, you guessed it, Miami Vice.  If you like
this you would definitely like other 80's stuff by Jan Hammer.  His keyboard was
(I believe) a Fairlight.  If you cant find the original Miami VIce soundtrack, I
believe you can find this song on "Escape from Television", which has a lot of
Hammer's 80's work on it.


What are the songs played in the Malibu club?

"Dance Hall Days" - Wang Chung

"Automatic" - Pointer Sisters

"Call Me" - Go West

What songs are played after you OWN the Malibu club?

Seems to be the same stuff for me.  Others have heard other stuff:

"I've also heard Michael Jackson's Bille Jean playing in the Malibu club."
- shadowgb


What songs are played in the Pole Position club?

"Behind the Groove" - Teena Marie

"All Night Long" - The Mary Jane Girls

"Obsession" - Animotion

"You have lists of songs played during cut scenes and inside buildings
but you dont have any songs played in the pole position club. The Track I
am specifically looking for is when you go into the very back room of the
club there is a song playing when you go in. The stripper then dances
for around 10-20 seconds and the song playing sounds good from what I can
hear." - Format

After I recieved this e-mail Format quickly answered his own question - it's
"More Bounce to the Ounce" by Zapp and Roger.


What song is played in the Ocean View hotel?

That's "La Vida es Una Lenteja" by Unasta.


Why arent all of the songs in the game featured on the soundtrack CD's?

According to Rockstar COO Terry Donovan, in an interview with IGN:

"Even with seven CDs amazingly we couldn't fit it all on!"


Does Tori Amos REALLY cover Slayer or do you hate Slayer and you are just a
putz and/or acid junkie?

Yes she really does cover "Raining Blood". See her all-covers LP "Strange Little


What's the matter with you?  How did you find the time to do this?  Are you on
<insert names of various illegal stimulants here>???  Isnt it a lot of WORK?

I did it because I always look up what song is from what album and what year it
was released.  I try to find out all I can about just about every song/band that
I like.  I read every discography, biography, article and interview I can find.
That's just one of my little quirks, it's almost compulsive.  I do similar
stuff with video games and movies.

I picked up the whole Vice City boxed set about a week before it came out and
just started looking stuff up, looking through discographies and stuff, reliving
my 80's childhood.  I was most interested in finding out what year each song was
released.  After a while I figured if I was going to take all the time to look
this stuff up then I could at least make it so other people would benefit from
the information so I started typing it up.  I posted it on Gamefaqs the day after
the game came out, I think.

As far as the FAQ goes there is a lot more I would like to add to it.  If I had
time I would add tons more trivia/info about each song.  But I decided to only
do that if there was some question about that particular song.  For instance, if
you see additional information about a song other than the album it's from and
the year, that is me trying to help you determine the name of the song you are
hearing in the game.  The largest amount of questions I got (and still get!)
involve people trying to figure out what song they were hearing in the game.

Oh, and believe me this document would not have gotten as many revisions as it did
if I didnt get as much e-mail as I did about it - good and bad!  Thanks to
everyone who wrote in and CONTINUES to write in - it boggles my mind!




"Hi, I read your FAQ on gamefaqs and found it really useful, nice work!
Anyway... I saw a request in there for the intro theme of the game, which as
you know can't be found on any ost.  So I've taken the track off the game
myself, its 1.4mb, runs for 1:20 and you can download it here:


I can host it there practically forever.
I hope this is a worthy addition to your guide" - Rara A.


SkrEmnJava wrote in to let me know about a track not listed in the manual and not
on the soundtrack cd's or on any radio station.  It's "Burning for You" by Blue
Oyster Cult.  You'll hear it very late in the game in a cutscene.  Sorry to not
include more info but it's spoilerific.  I havent got to it yet anyway.
Thanks SkrEmnJava!


Another "hidden" track only heard in a cutscene reported by DuckettBC -
"The Freaks Come Out at Night" by Whodini.  Thanks DuckettBC!  He believes it's
on the mission for "The Job".  I think I already did this one and I wasnt paying
any attention.


Thanks to James Nelson for a correction concerning "Self Control" by Laura
Branigan.  It's not on the album "Branigan 2", it's on the album "Self Control".
I must be retarded.  And hey, "The Lucky One" is on there too!  Woo hoo!


Another hidden track?  Here's Dirk Jansen:

:"In the cut scene for "The Driver" mission, the song "In A Big Country" by the
:band "Big Country" plays in the background, but is not in the game. Also. I
:remember hearing Hungry Like the Wolf somewhere in the game. But maybe I'm
:insane. Is it a hidden track?"

In a big country dreams stay with you like a lover's voice on a mountain side.
It sure sounds like Big Country to me too, and I had to hear that part a LOT.
Anyway, I havent heard Hungry Like the Wolf yet.  Maybe you ARE insane.  Maybe
you hear Duran Duran while you're playing Mario Sunshine.  Let's see if anybody
else writes in who's heard it....

Kayla says:
"I really appreciate all of your hard work in writing your FAQ about the Grand
Theft Auto: Vice City soundtracks and the music not included.  Anyways I read
that a man heard Duran Duran's "Hungry Like The Wolf" and you haven't heard it
yet.  Well I figured I would write in to let you know that I heard it too.
The very sad thing is that I don't remember where in the game I heard it either.
But I know for sure I heard it.  Thanks a lot"

Tim T. says:
"I just completed vice city and I was looking at your Guide to the
soundtrack. I also heard the Duran Duran song "Hungry like a wolf" in
the game. I am not sure which mission it was, but I am convinced it was one
of the boat missions."


Doc Savage Jr. writes in defending Kate Bush!

:"I can understand the guy at Rockstar including Kate Bush (although it's not her
:best song, I prefer "wuthering heights" or "the man with the child in his eyes)
:She was a total knockout in her prime. She's also one of the smarter singers out
;there. She's worth about 25 million pounds sterling from her investments. Ah
;well, I guess we all had our crushes!"

I can see now that that song fits in the game pretty well.  It's 'emotional', the
lyrics are pretty twisted.. it's definitely something Fernando would get into!
And the Doc is correct about Kate being a knockout.  Check and see for yourself.
A lot of the songs I at first questioned being on the soundtrack are starting to
make more sense the more I hear them on the radio.


Pete has something to share, obscure 80's trivia is his forte:

:"p.s. Interesting note: the song "Love Missile F1-11" by Sigue Sigue Sputnik was
:in the beginning of Ferris Bueller's Day Off, after Ferris' parents leave and
:he's getting showered and dressed."

Thanks Pete. Now would someone write in and tell me which song from the VC
soundtrack was featured in "The Great Outdoors"?

"I was reading your page on gamefaqs and saw
some trivia. If it hasn't been mentioned yet I could
say that Kool & the gang "Summer Madness" plays
in Rocky 1 close to the beginning in his apartment." - no credit needed


Request for info:

I'm getting a lot of questions like "Which song is playing during cutscene 'x'".
If anybody wants to submit this kind of information, feel free.  I'm not sure I
want to go back and do some of those missions over again.

I'll get it started:

"The Party" - Broken Wings, or is it Out of Touch?
              It is Out of Touch - Weirdal27
                                 - Gixah

"Alloy Wheels of Steel" - Owner of a Lonely Heart

"Supply and Demand" - Dance Hall Days
 - Anomaly24

"The Job" - The Freaks Come Out At Night (by Whodini)
 - duckettbc


I got a letter from Jeff suggesting that people can find "Never Say Never" on the
"Rock of the 80's" compilation volumes.  Others have wrote in suggesting other
80's compilation.  But hey, why not just get it from the WAVE 103 CD?


Sigue Sigue Sputnik experts have wrote in...

:Hi, just perusing your great GTA: Vice Soundtrack FAQ, and I had a bit more
:trivia for you regarding Sigue Sigue Sputnik... Didn't know how familiar you
:are with SSS, but back in tha' day Billy Idol was in a punk band called
:'Generation X'. After Gen X broke up, Idol went solo,and the rest of the band
:more or less became Sigue Sigue Sputnik. They were quite a media sensation
:back in the 80's because of their shamelessly overproduced music and cheeky
:Like I said, you may already know this, but I thought I'd let you know just
:in case. I was a big SSS fan back then :)
:Take care,

And, from Lennart, in response to the above...

:This is quite wrong. Sigue Sigue Sputnik was created by Generation X
:member Tony James, however, none of the other SSS members were a part
:of Generation X. Indeed, they were all selected to become members because
:they had no musical experience at all. :)
:Sigue Sigue Sputnik was a completely commercial project with (almost)
:no musical talent, and proud of it! Produced by production-genius Giorgio
:Moroder, they at least sounded darn good.


Thanks to Daifuku for giving me very neat and concise info on the European VC
soundtrack additions!  I didnt know you received a code after using all seven
cd's either, although I have done so.  Well it's pretty redundant now anyway,
the codes are all over the place.  Note - I have not heard "Hold the Line", "I
Wanna be a Cowboy" or "Smuggler's Blues" anywhere in the game (yet).

:Hey, good work with the faq. Just like to add a but of info - the Euro
:release was blessed with a couple of extra tracks on V-Rock, Wave,
:Flash and Fever. Also you left out the tank code you get for using all
:seven cd's on the ConnecteD website.
