The lovely music of today's GTA 5 character trailers

Queen Radio Ga Ga

Add Queen, Jay Rock, and Waylon Jennings to the list of Grand Theft Auto addictive tunes. Known for their entertaining radio stations, the GTA games are often recognized for their impressive soundtracks. We don't know if these three artists will actually be featured in GTA 5, but they served as the background music for each of the three new character trailers. Interestingly, each track perfectly sets the tone for the character in the trailer.

Queen "Radio Ga Ga"

Queen's "Radio Ga Ga" accompanied Michael's debut. The soothing voice of Freddie Mercury fits perfectly with Michael's life of luxury, although as we saw in the trailer, he's clearly battling a midlife crisis.

Jay Rock "Hood Gone Love It"

Franklin's story, meanwhile, was told to the tune of "Hood Gone Love It" by Jay Rock. This hard rap track represents the gangbanger life Franklin is trying to escape from.

​Waylon Jennings "Are You Sure Hank Done It This Way"

Lastly, Waylon Jennings' "Are You Sure Hank Done It This Way" is the track for Trevor's character spotlight. This classic country song sets the tone for Trevor's hillbilly lifestyle.

These three artists join Stevie Wonder whose song "Skeletons" was the track for the second GTA 5 trailer.
