In Grand Theft Auto 2, each area features five radio stations from a pool of eleven, in which one of them would be played as the player drives most vehicles in game. Each gang also has its own radio station that transmits within a limited area.

This list includes also the names of the products that were advertised, news/weather and promo's. Where there is written N/A the song hasn't been yet related to the right name or the product name advertised isn't understood.

Changing radio stations for preference was possible in the PC version by using the "F1" function key, and in the Playstation version by pressing the "up" directional button.
