Grand Theft Auto IV Soundtrack
The soundtrack to the game Grand Theft Auto IV, like the previous games in the series, is mostly made up of in-game radio stations. These radio stations can be listened to when driving various vehicles in the game, or at the start menu. Radio stations in past Grand Theft Auto games have included licensed music, original music made specifically for the game, DJ chat, and spoof advertising. This game includes 19 in-game radio stations (20 in the PC edition) and over 200 tracks. Of the 19 stations, 16 are musical stations while the other 3 are talk radio.
The soundtrack is expanded by purchasing two episodes of downloadable content, Grand Theft Auto IV: The Lost and Damned and Grand Theft Auto IV: The Ballad of Gay Tony, which each add over 50 songs and a talk radio program to the existing radio stations. The songs included with the downloadable content carry over to the compilation disc Grand Theft Auto: Episodes From Liberty City but songs featured originally in Grand Theft Auto IV do not. Instead there are three exclusive radio stations featuring 48 songs not available for the original game.
The radio stations play songs in a random order and will still start at a random point whenever the player enters a vehicle. The radio station that is on when the player enters a vehicle is based on the type of vehicle the player enters.
Along with the in-game radio stations, other credited music is heard exclusively at certain points in the game. This includes the opening credits sequence and when walking through the interiors of certain buildings in the game. Michael Hunter composed and produced the theme song called Soviet Connection and incidental music for the original game.
As part of a partnership between Rockstar Games and Amazon.com, most of the music heard on the in-game radio stations is available for download through the Amazon MP3 digital music store. Beginning with the release of The Lost and Damned, Rockstar's soundtrack sales partner is the iTunes Store.

Famous quotes containing the words grand and/or theft:
“They have their belief, these poor Tibet people, that Providence sends down always an Incarnation of Himself into every generation. At bottom some belief in a kind of pope! At bottom still better, a belief that there is a Greatest Man; that he is discoverable; that, once discovered, we ought to treat him with an obedience which knows no bounds. This is the truth of Grand Lamaism; the discoverability is the only error here.”
—Thomas Carlyle (17951881)
“Men are not therefore put to death, or punished for that their theft proceedeth from election; but because it was noxious and contrary to mens preservation, and the punishment conducing to the preservation of the rest, inasmuch as to punish those that do voluntary hurt, and none else, frameth and maketh mens wills such as men would have them.”
—Thomas Hobbes (15791688)
