Vinyl Countdown is a music store located in both Vice City (in 1984 & 1986) and Los Santos (in 1992), and appears in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories. The name of the store is a reference to the Europe song, "The Final Countdown".


In GTA: Vice City, the store, which is found at the North Point Mall and has an accessible interior, is one of fifteen stores that must be robbed for 100% completion, whilst the same store in GTA: Vice City Stories is where Smiley #9 can be found although it has no other purpose.

In GTA: San Andreas, there is a small billboard of both Love Fist and a Lance Vance look alike, with the message "Let's go to Dundee!!"

In all appearances, the logo of Vinyl Countdown has the first "o" replaced with a black gramophone record, making it only partially visible on the usual dark background. This results in yet another one of Rockstar's sexual jokes, the resulting combination being "Vinyl Cuntdown".
