‘Grand Theft Auto 5′ Trailer – What’s the Song?

Subscribe to Ultimate Classic Rock on

Rockstar Games have released a trailer for Grand Theft Auto 5. The trailer for the game actually plays out like a trailer from some television drama.

Game characters Michael, Franklin and Trevor are featured in a few different spots for the game. The background music for the ‘Trevor’ segment features Waylon Jennings‘ ‘Are You Sure Hank Done It This Way?’ while the ‘Franklin’ section spews out ‘Hood Gone Love’ by Jay Rock.

But that’s not why we’ve brought you here, is it? The game character named ‘Michael,’ who appears to be the most upwardly mobile of the lot, has the unmistakable sounds of Queen‘s ‘Radio Gaga’ pulsing through the background of his section of the mini drama sales pitch.

Who are these fictitious heroes, hooligans and or ne’er do wells? We can only assume that those immersed in the world of gaming will be thrilled to their core that there will be a fifth installment in the ever popular Grand Theft Auto series.

As for what Queen in general, or ‘Radio Gaga’ in particular has to do with the trials and tribulations of ‘Michael’ we are not sure, but it was certainly one of the legendary band’s biggest hits. It shot to No. 2 in the U.K., reached the Top 20 in the U.S. and topped the charts elsewhere around the globe.

The game is set for release on Xbox 360 and PS3 on Sept. 17, and ‘Radio Gaga’ will be featured on the accompanying soundtrack..
