The game files also suggest that this station was a reasonably late addition to the game, with a 90s Rock station called P.M.R taking it's place beforehand. The P.M.R logo for use in the radio wheel even still exists within the files, and the folder storing the songs for Vinewood Boulevard Radio still makes mention of 90s Rock. The station would have played 90s Rock songs that would have varied from Alternative Rock, Brit Pop/Brit Rock, Alternative Metal, Post-Grunge, and Indie Rock. The songs that were meant for this station include:
- The Charlatans - The Only One I Know (1990)
- Faith No More - The Real Thing (1989)
- Oasis - (It's Good) To Be Free (1994)
- Mansun - Wide Open Space (1997)
- Staind - It's Been Awhile (2001)
- Stereophonics - Mr. Writer (2001)
- Travis - Side (2001)
- The beta radio hud for the 90s rock station, "P.M.R", resembled the Nine Inch Nails logo, sharing the rectangular box design with the letters inside of it and the last letter flipped, in which in this case is the letter "R".
- As said above, "P.M.R" might've been a successor to "Radio X" from Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.
- Vinewood Boulevard Radio may be based on KROQ, a radio station in Los Angeles that plays modern rock.
- The Black Keys' song "Lonely Boy"" can be heard during a station ID, even though it's not on the playlist.
