Each album will contain musical tracks from one of the in-game radio stations featured in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, ranging from Heavy Metal and Soul to Hip-Hop and Pop Ballads. Overall, the collection of seven CDs will be a rich anthology of the music that characterized the Eighties, the period in which the game takes place.
The radio stations in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City will feature the largest selection of music ever assembled for a video game with over eighty tracks from artists such as Judas Priest, Blondie, Flock of Seagulls, Kool and the Gang, Hall and Oates, Grandmaster Flash, Cutting Crew and many more that span the entire musical spectrum of the period.
"The Grand Theft Auto franchise has always broken the boundaries of what videogame soundtracks can be, and Rockstar Games, along with Sony Music and Epic Records, have set a new standard with Grand Theft Auto: Vice City," stated Terry Donovan, COO of Rockstar Games. "The Grand Theft Auto: Vice City soundtrack albums will arguably represent the most diverse, extraordinary and innovative collection of music ever assembled for any piece of entertainment - whether it be video games, television or feature films. Every track was lovingly and laboriously chosen to reflect the vast array of 80's musical styles and create the perfect audio landscape for Grand Theft Auto: Vice City."
Thomas D. Mottola President and Chief Operating Officer of Sony Music, stated "Sony is thrilled to have the opportunity to release what we believe will be one of the most thorough and exciting collections of 80's music ever to find its way into record stores. Rockstar Games has enjoyed incredible success with the unique creativity and gameplay of the Grand Theft Auto series, and Sony could not be more pleased to participate in the global launch of the soundtracks to Grand Theft Auto: Vice City."
