'Grand Theft Auto V' classic rock station features Robert Plant, Bob Seger + more
Bob Seger and Robert Plant are two of the 23 artists who make up the playlist of the classic rock station found in the 'Grand Theft Auto V' video game. And there's probably a lot of people listening to those songs right now, since the game earned over $800 million in sales on its Sept. 17 release day, the most successful first-day figure in history.
According to igta5, Plant is represented by his 1983 hit 'Big Log,' while Seger is the only artist with two songs under his own name, 'Night Moves' and 'Hollywood Nights'. Kenny Loggins, who is also the DJ of the game's "Los Santos Rock Radio" station, contributed 'I'm Free (Heaven Help the Man)' and a song he co-wrote, 'What a Fool Believes' by the Doobie Brothers.
In addition to 'Hollywood Nights', the station features a couple of other classic rock songs that seem to fit in perfectly with the Los Angeles-based game that is equally celebrated and condemned for its portrayal of crime and violence: Elton John's 'Saturday Night's Alright for Fighting' and the Steve Miller Band's 'Take the Money and Run.'
