MSX FM is a Drum & Bass radio station in Grand Theft Auto III, hosted by MC Codebreaker. The station is also known as MSX 98 in Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories.



Having a playlist that consists solely of Jungle/Drum and Bass music, the station's musical beat is fast paced and energetic, and characteristically features MC Codebreaker frequently MC'ing his own vocals into the continuous mix of music tracks, although his thick London accent makes his dialog hard to understand for those not aquainted with this style of music or MC'ing. Much like Rise FM in GTA III, the station is a continuous DJ mix of musical tracks, and as a result does not play advertising. The station's design references various real-life drum and bass-related subjects; the station's suffix is 101.1 - a reference to Timecode's (Rob Playford) mix CD 01.1 (Released on his record label 'Moving Shadow'), while MSX itself stands for "Moving Shadow".

Compared to Lips 106 and Head Radio (which are pop stations), this music is considered to be "hardcore", and is one of the radio stations tuned in by default when the player carjacks most Southside Hoods gang cars.
