[[V-Rock]] was also the branding of WSTB, a radio station serving Streetsboro High School in Streetsboro, Ohio. Like it's virtual successor, [[V-Rock]] played heavy metal music; indeed, given the time period [[V-Rock]] was on the air (1991-1999), it's likely the on-air station played many of the same songs as the station in the video game. [[V-Rock]] signed off the air in the wake of the Columbine tragedy, and resumed that fall with a new brand and new format. (See also [[wikipedia:WSTB|WSTB]] for additional information.)

Various radio stations can be received on radios in most vehicles in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. They are also available in the Audio menu, while the game is paused. The soundtrack has been released in a box set and seven separate CDs.

Most radio stations play a mixture of music, DJ chat, and spoof advertising. The stations each reflect one style of music intended to evoke the atmosphere of the time. Several of the stations also reappear in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, which is a direct prequel to the game.

The player can listen to the following radio stations:

The songs are listed in the same order as they appear in the game.

On 6 December 2012, GTA Vice City was released on iOS and Android to celebrate the game's 10th anniversary. However, some songs were removed from these versions of the game, and are marked with an *.
