Talented YouTube user recreates classic GTA theme songs

Published at 7:06 AM PST

There is nothing like the theme song from one, or three, of your favorite games to take you back to that feeling you had playing through the game for the first time. Plus the hours of news watching, excitement over all the possibilities, and then the pay off: story telling, new experiences, and total mayhem. Each Grand Theft Auto game, much like all Rockstar games, has had a unique soundtrack matched with an equally unique theme song - and GTA III, Vice City and San Andreas have three of the most recognizable.

YouTube user Squid Physics Productions has single-handedly recreated all three of them with various instruments from his collection. He is one seriously talented individual, with knowledge of around 20 different instruments, and accuracy so good the productions come close to beating the originals. They must be seen and heard to be truly appreciated, so check them out below.

Grand Theft Auto III

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

Oh, and there's more on the way. He'll be releasing similar videos for all three Grand Theft Auto IV theme songs in a few weeks. Great effort!

Update: Squid Physics has, just this past week, released his rendition of GTA IV's theme song. You can find it below.
