Love Fist is a fictional Scottish heavy metal band prominently featured in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and mentioned in many of the following games since. A single member of the band, Willy, appears in Grand Theft Auto V.

The name "Love Fist" is a reference to fisting, an extreme form of female masturbation.

Description

GTA Vice City

The band is composed of Jezz Torrent ("Jizz" if said with a Scottish accent, a slang term for semen) and Willy, Dick, and Percy (all slang terms for the penis). Willy is the only band member that does not accompany the band when they go out into the city since Tommy chauffeurs them. Tommy Vercetti performs various tasks for the band in Vice City, such as saving them from a murderous fan out to kill them and attaining their "love juice" (a mix of "trumpet", boomshine, fizz bombs and petrol), which they claim to need before they go on stage. He also brings them Mercedes Cortez to "keep them company."

Love Fist is managed by Kent Paul in 1986 and at the time are on their "Steel Heart Stone Cold Prostate" tour, which, during its stop in Vice City, had security provided by Big Mitch Baker's biker gang. By 1992, they are only a three-man band, as seen on a Vinyl Countdown billboard (either Willy or Percy leaves the group). The band broke up at least once in between 1992 and 1998, since there is a billboard visible in "Liberty City Stories" which advertises the band's comeback tour. In Grand Theft Auto IV, the SuperStar franchise in The Triangle, Algonquin includes an illuminated display which flashes "SuperStar, Starring, The Mighty, Love Fist."

During in game dialogue, several secrets are revealed about the band members, lead singer Jezz Torrent apparently used to have sex with sheep, drummer Dick is a huge fan of Duran Duran, guitarist Percy sleeps with bunny pajamas and bassist Willy likes to wear woman's underwear. Jezz Torrent sings about cross-dressing on "Dangerous Bastard" and Tommy accuses the entire band of bisexuality, to which they do not offer a reply.

GTA San Andreas

There are several references to Love Fist in GTA San Andreas including a graffiti tag of their name in the Las Venturas gym. They are also seen on a billboard and on a poster during a mission cutscene as seen on these pictures. They are also mentioned on the radio station K-DST when the host says, "What ever happened to Love Fist?"

Grand Theft Auto IV

GTA IV demonstrated that Love Fist is still active in the HD Universe. The SuperStar Cafe in The Triangle has a sign above the entrance that says, "Starring...The Mighty...Love Fist.", Lazlow often mentions the band in Integrity 2.0 and, in the in-game website (For people who literally love fists), there is a notice about how they are in a legal dispute with the Love Fist band over the domain name. A Love Fist poster hangs on the wall inside Bucky Sligo's house.

Grand Theft Auto V

Band member Willy (spelled Willie in game) appears in a side mission where Trevor must knock out his gold tooth and bring it to a man named Nigel as a souvenir. Willy can be killed in this mission, and if Trevor does kill him, he will say "Oops, sorry Love Fist fans." Its also possible to see the entourage of the band during the mission, one of then being the manager of Love Fist and the other probably the song writer, as he says the he have been "heavily involved with the creative process" of the band. In addition, Trevor Phillips is able to buy a black muscle shirt with a Love Fist logo on the front. The shirt can be bought in the same shop where you buy the masks. Jezz Torrent is mentioned in Fame or Shame, he apparently went solo and one of his songs is sung by an act. Love Fist is also shown on a GTA V promotional artwork photo, in a woman's t-shirt when she is being arrested by Vasquez.

Inspiration

  • The band may have been inspired by 70s British Rock Group The Sweet because the music style and vocals are similar.
  • The album "The Number of the Breast" is an obvious parody of Iron Maiden's album "The Number of the Beast."
  • Love Fist’s appearance and lyrics seem to parody that of 1980s heavy metal bands, specifically hair metal bands such as Poison, L.A. Guns, and Mötley Crüe.
  • The mid-song break in 'Fist Fury' (1:40) is exactly the same as the break in the song 'Die Hard the Hunter' by Def Leppard (4:00).
