* "No Sex For Ben" by The Rapture, a song from ''Radio Broker''. Despite the DarkerAndEdgier nature of the game, you can't deny that the song is incredibly funny, laughable and silly. The fact that it is one of the most memorable songs in the game certainly helps. ''Radio Broker'' in general is a novelty for anyone who has ever played the previous games. This makes sense, since the game takes place in 2008.
* The main theme, "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jqE8M2ZnFL8 Soviet Connection]]". It fits appropriately to the dark and gloomy nature of the game.
* The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ws29mtfOgHQ music]] that plays over the pause menu. It's a very subdued and empty piece, and it sums up the tragic tone of the story perfectly.
%%* The actual licensed tracks like the Music/ViktorTsoi hit, "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PM_C4VXSh0s Blood Type]]".
%%* And the end credits songs (''Grand Theft Auto IV'' main theme, "Inside the Cage" by Juliette and the Licks, "New York Groove" by Hello, "Get Innocuous" by LCD Soundsystem, and "King Ring" by Seryoga).

* Damn near the entire soundtrack can be thought of as one long string of SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic. [[http://www.complex.com/pop-culture/2012/12/the-25-best-songs-from-the-grand-theft-auto-vice-city-soundtrack/ Many]] have [[http://thebests.kotaku.com/the-best-licensed-video-game-soundtrack-of-all-time-1685069296 praised it]] as quite possibly the greatest video game soundtrack ever made, its mix of songs capturing the feel of its time and place, at least [[HollywoodHistory as remembered by pop culture]], like nothing else before it or since. Looking back, ''Vice City'' was a GenreTurningPoint for video game soundtracks, making it Awesome on a meta level as well. Before ''Vice City'', music for video games was usually either composed by a single musician for that game or made up of a collection of underground or obscure artists and bands (the ''VideoGame/TonyHawkProSkater'' series' eclectic collection of punk and hip-hop being about as big as it usually got), while afterwards, it became the norm for games, especially open-world games, to feature dozens of songs by big-name musicians.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jKxJIlgnbCY The C.R.A.S.H. theme]], played whenever Tenpenny is onscreen. While it's a short, quiet loop, it's still a dark tune, perfectly summing up how much of an absolute {{Jerkass}} Tenpenny is.
