Arrow The Lost Music of Grand Theft Auto IV

THE LOST MUSIC OF
As with any other major video game production, there are things that are added and then somehow removed at various dates between development start and end, and Grand Theft Auto IV is no exception, here we are looking at an essential staple of the series, the Radio Content, going over old notes and information dating way back before Grand Theft Auto IV's release, this post is a collection of songs that were confirmed by various sources to appear on the games Radio Dial, but did not, and thanks to the PC version of the game we are also able to check out the ZiT listings, which reveal even more tracks that were supposed to appear in the game, and later, the DLC, so here are the songs which are pretty much The Lost Music of Grand Theft Auto IV:

These are songs that were confirmed by various magazine articles and license registrations by Rockstar for use in an upcoming game, other songs that were licensed did appear in the game:
