- Rebel Radio may be based on Go Country 105, K-FROG 95.1 FM or KHAY-FM - real-life country radio stations located in California.
- The radio station name maybe a reference to a Disney Channel movie Radio Rebel, but it is more likely that it refers to the confederates who were called Rebels in the American Civil War. Country music originates from the confederate southern states.
- If the player walks up to the radio station headquarters, they will hear songs that are played on the actual radio station. The music heard here will not match the music currently being played on the station.
- The song "Convoy" by C.W. McCall is part of the soundtrack from the 1978 movie Convoy directed by Sam Peckinpah who also directed Bring me the Head of Alfredo Garcia and The Getaway which with no doubt have been an inspiration for the GTA series and can be seen as a tribute to the movies and the director. The same goes for the song "General Lee".
- The song "Are You Sure Hank Done It This Way" by Waylon Jennings is featured in Trevor's introduction trailer.
- Two of the songs from this station automatically play according to events as the story progresses. Firstly, "I Ain't Living Long Like This" by Waylon Jennings will play after Trevor has pushed Ortega's trailer into the river in Mr. Philips. Secondly, "It Won't Be Long (And I'll be Hating You)" by Johnny Paycheck will play when Trevor and Wade Hebert drive to Los Santos following their ambush of The Lost MC camp during Friends Reunited.
