    Can we maybe add some punk music? Misfits,Adicts,sex pistols,bad religion,distillers,rancid? And maybe some volbeat,slipknot,slayer,Marilyn Manson,iron maiden,anthrax to the metal/head rock station? That'd be sweet.

                  @Volcomonster Chennel X blows, it plays all lo key metal groups. I want a rock station that plays some Metalica, some Godsmack, some Alice in Chains, Avenged Sevenfold, DISTURBED!!!! C'mon Rockstar MAKE IT HAPPEN!

                Yeah it would be great for the new tracks to come to old gen consoles but regarding the choice of music choose something different like club music or something along the lines of classic techno, trance or hardstyle because none of the radiostations play them at all
                But what ever you do don't put dub step in gta :)

                    Would love some metal and hard rock tunes. I would happily get rid of that stupid "We built this city" song in exchange for something by Iron Maiden, Metallica, or Megadeth.

                    But I am happy they included The Highwaymen on the country station, that is an awesome song.

                      I feel that 360 and PS3 are getting left out of all the cool stuff. Now Next Gen is here old Gen have been kicked to the side of the RockStar offic and thrown a crust of bread every now and again."crust of bread" being a small update.non of the new cars,music and moving steering wheels.Okay we had hiests but it still feels like we are getting left out on old gen. AND WHAT THE BLOODY HELL IS WRONG WITH THE BACK OF THE HYDRA!?!?! Harrier jump jets would not work as efficenly as they dit if they were like that.

                        I have an idea for gta 5 online. can you put something like dogs you can adopted for a pet to keep you safe and if the dog dies you go to your phone and call dog care to get him back but spawes in your apartment and you can name him and have alot of dog breeds to.
