For its successor from GTA V, see Channel X.
"Finally, there IS an alternative. The home of Modern Rock. This is a revolution. Guitars, nihilistic hedonism, and telling the elder generation to go screw themselves. Nobody has done this before. We are original thinkers. We are free. Sage leads the navel gazing; she is a remarkable talent."
―GTA San Andreas Website

Radio X, referred to as Radio:X in its logo, is an alternative rock/heavy metal/grunge music station in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.


The station is hosted by Sage, an escaped mental patient who holds extremely pessimistic world views. A proud member of Generation X, she is very outspoken against the previous generation and constantly speaks her views on air between songs.

Playlist for Radio X

Songs marked with * don't appear in the Re-Released versions of the game.


  • This station appears to be renamed to Channel X between the events of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Grand Theft Auto V, though Channel X plays punk music as opposed to the grunge of Radio X.
    • This is further proven by one of the Channel X stingers, which says "We've been Radio X for too long!", implying that the station was previously known as Radio X.
  • The "X" in Radio X is reference to Generation X, the generation born between the mid-1960s and early-1980s.
  • The station is the default station when the player enters an Andromada, Buffalo, PCJ-600, or Vortex.
  • "Head Like a Hole", originally by Nine Inch Nails, was covered by A.F.I. and is featured as a bonus track to the soundtrack collection, even though it's not featured in-game. The original Nine Inch Nails version of the song would most likely be featured on Radio X, given the genre of the song and station.
  • "Killing in The Name" by Rage Against the Machine is played while the player takes a girlfriend on a bad restaurant date. This song was removed from the re-released version of the game and the "successful date" jingle plays instead.
  • "Plush" by Stone Temple Pilots, while recorded for their 1992 debut album Core, wasn't actually released as a single until 1993, after the timeline of the game.
  • "Cult of Personality" by Living Color (along with "Get Down To It" by Humble Pie from K-DST) plays during stadium events.
