Grand Theft Auto 5 Soundtrack

Rockstar Games has revealed the full Grand Theft Auto 5 soundtrack! Both the radio songs and dynamic soundtrack are listed on this page, 240+ songs in all!

The game includes over 20 hours of original, dynamic score* created by noted composer Tangerine Dream in collaboration with Woody Jackson (Red Dead Redemption, Max Payne 3, LA Noire) and L.A. hip-hop producers Alchemist and Oh No.

*Grand Theft Auto V is the first GTA game to have a score, which will be played during missions, open world gameplay, and online play. Rockstar’s soundtrack supervisor Ivan Pavlovich says that the soundtrack will be “completely dynamic, and engineered very similar to what we’ve done in the past with our interactive stem system – it responds to what you’re doing with your character.”

Here’s a sample from the Grand Theft Auto 5 soundtrack, the Main Theme:

Grand Theft Auto 5 Song List

Here is Rockstar’s soundtrack supervisor Ivan Pavlovich talking about making the in-game Grand Theft Auto 5 song list available throughout the gameplay experience; And the challenges involved in making it last 30-40 hours with original music, and up to the 100 hours of possible playtime through dynamic score mixing.

To quote: “We have somewhere in the proximity of 20 movies worth of score. It’s the largest soundtrack that we’ve done, and the largest score that we’ve done.”

“We started with Tangerine Dream. We’ve used them before in terms of licensed music – we’re huge fans of Edgar Froese. When we started to think about who would be the right composer for this game, he was the first name that came to mind. Complimenting his work we have Woody Jackson, who scored Red Dead Redemption and helped score L.A. Noire. Woody’s an amazing musician. And the third part of the triangle is Alchemist and Oh No.”

“Although each of these composers is used to define a character or an environment, what’s been interesting about this process is that it’s been the first fully collaborative score that we’ve done. Even though you may be triggering one score with a particular character or within a particular area in the world, you’re always hearing elements from the other composers. The first time you come into the country you’re blown away by Woody Jackson’s rock score, but within that you’re still hearing elements of Tangerine Dream, and Alchemist and Oh No. So you’re never too far away from this core sound that we’ve established for the game.”

Grand Theft Auto 5 Trailer Theme Song:

In case you were looking for the music that plays in the background of the official Grand Theft Auto 5 Debut Trailer. That theme song is titled “Sleepwalking” by The Chain Gang of 1974. Here it is…
