The station is named after the city of Vice City, and replaces The Vibe 98.8 from Grand Theft Auto IV.

  • There are several recognizable references to the events of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, including the phrase "ate your cassette disc", which is a reference to the mission Supply & Demand for Ricardo Diaz.
  • Evan Moss sings along to "Maneater" by Hall & Oates in the opening cutscene of the mission Bang Bang. This is the only time the player can hear the song in the game if they own the downloadable version, as Vice City FM only appears in the disc version, though it is available on the Steam download for PC.
  • The main verse/chorus of "Maneater" was sampled by rapper Royce Da 5'9 in his song "We're Live (Danger)", which was featured in GTA III's hip-hop station Game FM.
  • "The Look" by Roxette plays in one of The Ballad of Gay Tony trailers, and is also played in strip clubs.
  • On an in-game poster advertising the radio station, there is a list of bands featured. Interestingly "Go West" and "Tears For Fears" are listed, but no songs are in the playlist, suggesting they were dropped during development, however, no song titles from these bands are seen in the file "american.gxt". Despite this, there is DJ commentary in the Vice City FM files hinting that Go West's song "We Close Our Eyes" and Tears For Fears's "Mad World" would've been on the station.
  • Michael Jackson's "Another Part of Me", can be briefly heard in one of the stingers for the station.
  • The style of writing on the station logo is the exact same as the logo used on the front of the Grand Theft Auto: Vice City instruction manual.
