Music and audio is such a massive part of video games these days. They provide an extra ambiance to really give the players a sense of immersion. Often times, they just really make the games themselves so much more fun to play. Some games take their auditory capabilities to the next level, and others go for realism and fan service by adding selectable radio stations in their games.
Cyberpunk 2077 is one such game. There are a couple of radio stations in this game the players can listen to when cruising around. They have a pretty impressive song list too. Each of them has something fresh to bring to the table, and although ranking them is a fun endeavor, all of these stations are top-notch in their own way.
10 103.5 Radio Pebkac
Radio Pebkac is a techno radio station. Techno music is very popular in the world of Cyberpunk 2077, and why wouldn’t it be? The colorful and techy vibe of techno music fits the world of Night City very well, that it comes as no surprise that it’s all the rave in this world.
This radio station, while decent, is a somewhat average techno station. Marcin Przybyłowicz, a composer of the game, lent a couple of his compositions for this radio station.
9 88.3 Pacific Dreams
In Cyberpunk 2077, many of the things they call “classic” belong in the 2020s, which is our time in the real world. The radio station 88.3 Pacific Dreams, however, actually does feel like a nostalgia fuel for the players.
88.3 Pacific Dreams is still a techno radio station, but the songs in it sound more funky and soothing compared to the others, making it seem like it’s the kind of music that can be expected of classic games. Nonetheless, it’s a very enjoyable listen.
8 106.9 30 Principales
Fans of Latin Hip-Hop will absolutely love listening to this radio station. That’s what this radio station is about, added with a couple of heavy reggaeton tracks. At initial listen, it may seem like it’s a distance genre from Night City’s ambiance, but its lively and upbeat nature will prove that sentiment wrong.
The songs on this radio station have varying sounds, but they all have a heartbeat-pumping resonance. This makes it a perfect radio station to listen to when hyping up for an intense mission.
7 89.3 Radio Vexelstorm
Aside from techno, the one genre that really fits Night City’s overall vibe is rock music. If one were to fuse techno and rock and roll in one radio station, they’d get 89.3 Radio Vexelstorm. This union between the two genres in this one station almost makes it the perfect radio station for the residents of Night City.
This too can be a flaw, though. When listening to this station alone while driving around and a song from a different genre suddenly starts playing, it can be a very noticeable shift. Those who don’t mind mix and matching, on the other hand, will love the songs this station offer.
6 91.9 Royal Blue Radio
Who knew Jazz music would work so well in Cyberpunk 2077? Even if there are those who don’t believe the genre meshes well with the atmosphere and feel of the game, it’s had to discredit 91.9 Royal Blue Radio for its highly impressive lineup of songs.
Songs by renowned Jazz artists such as Miles Davis and John Coltrane are present on this radio station. While players prefer to listen to more upbeat songs while preparing for missions, this radio station will most certainly help them cool down afterwards.
5 98.7 Body Heat Radio
All forms of pop music are very popular in our day and age. As it turns out, that also remains to be the case in 2077, in the world of Cyberpunk 2077, anyway. The proof of that is 98.7 Body Heat Radio.
While belonging under the same genre, the songs on the radio station portray a wide range of emotion and substance. Many of them seem to be influenced by Asian pop music, which is very sensical in Cyberpunk 2077 given how much Japanese culture has influenced Night City.
4 101.0 The Dirge
101.0 The Dirge is a radio station in Cyberpunk 2077 that plays a range of songs from the hip-hop and rock genres all day long. The songs that grace this station with their rhythmic patterns, rapid lyric delivery, and upbeat feel make them an awesome companion when driving around the lively world of Night City.
This radio station is home to so many fantastic artists from the world of hip-hop, a few of them even very recognizable in our world today. Some of the most major artists on this station are A$AP Rocky and Run the Jewels.
3 92.9 Night FM
There are a couple of techno radio stations the players can listen to while playing Cyberpunk 2077, but 92.9 Night FM is by far the best among the bunch. This radio station combines everything present from the other techno stations in the game, resulting in a perfectly curated station that matches the aesthetics of the game in a divine manner.
The songs in this station sound almost elegant while remaining groovy and catchy at the same time. Whether the player is on their way to complete the main storyline or playing around with the side jobs and quests, they can rely on this station to hype them up properly.
2 96.1 Ritual FM
Heavy metal fans rejoice! 96.1 Ritual FM is the quintessential radio station for the metalheads who are playing Cyberpunk 2077. It’s hard-hitting, heavy, powerful, and they’re oh-so-perfect for a tough gutted mercenary.
The 96.1 Ritual FM easily stands out in this game. Those who skim around the radio stations while lingering in their vehicles in the game, once stumbling upon this station, will most definitely experience a sense of grandeur.
1 107.3 Morro Rock Radio
The 107.3 Morro Rock Radio station in Cyberpunk 2077 is the best radio station in the game for one very important reason: it’s where players can listen to Johnny Silverhand’s music. More accurately, it’s the station that plays his band’s music, Samurai.
Played in the real world by the band Refused, Samurai’s music alone makes this station stand out as the best among the rest. It’s also accompanied by many other incredible rock artists such as Rubicons, Aligns, and Rat Boy, among others.
