Its not uncommon for the GTA franchise to introduce its players to a bevy of new songs they most likely would have never found out about otherwise. As a teenager growing up in the 90s and 2000s, I vividly remember just falling in love with the pop 80s soundtrack of Vice City, featuring classics such as I Ran by A Flock of Seagulls. The vast selection of radio stations and songs have been a beloved staple of the franchise, and in GTA V, it is no different. Its somewhat more pertinent than ever before here, as going into GTA V, there wasnt a lot I was personally familiar with. Even the artists I recognised had songs listed I hadnt even heard of. When the dust had settled, though, I found myself with a multitude of new songs stuck in my head, ready to toss into the ol' iTunes library, and these are 10 of those songs, complete with brief descriptions and embedded links to listen to them.
10. Favored Nations - The Setup
I cant say Ive ever heard of Favored Nations before GTA V, and Wikipedia isnt yielding much information on them either, so Ill just say that this song is pretty rhythmic and catchy. Its not very lyrically mind-blowing or anything, just really fun to listen to.
