Radio ads ahead of GTA V news

Are you ready for the next official slice of official GTA V news from Rockstar? The famed developer recently stated that more content was on the way after dropping those beautiful screenshots, and now we have the first possible evidence that they plan to stick to their word.

You probably haven’t noticed, but Rockstar has updated a section of their website, which adds all new classic radio adverts from some of the previous games in the franchise. You can now visit their website and playback an entire catalog of previous adverts and jingles, and we have a feeling that this could be in preparation for some GTA V related radio content.

The random radio ads and classic tunes from the 80s and 90s is probably one of the most popular features of the entire Grand Theft Auto franchise and it is pretty mouth watering from our point of view to find out what tracks and stations are going to be included in GTA 5.

Aside from hearing some of most famous tunes in the music industry, Rockstar always includes a selection of tracks that gamers have never heard before, or in some cases, featuring old tracks that put the artist back into the limelight. Take Dance Hall Days as a classic example, from 80s new wave band Wang Chung. It was one of the best tracks from GTA Vice City and probably one of the main reasons why everyone still remembers the band today.

Rockstar has put these new radio archive clips online on their website for a good reason. After showing us the graphical prowess of the game via those screenshots, it looks they’ll be focusing on their radio ads and track soundtrack next. The possibilities are endless for what tracks will be included, but if you could make your own personal wishlist – what music would you choose for Grand Theft Auto 5?

A bit of Michael Jackson and Steely Dan perhaps? – You can’t go wrong there. Check out the Rockstar Advertising Council here and take a trip down memory lane as we prepare for some GTA V radio-related news. Are you expecting a mix of old and new again, or will you just be happy to play custom music as you cruise through the streets of GTA 5?
