Liberty City Hardcore, also known as Liberty City Hardcore Classics or LCHC, is a radio station that appears in Grand Theft Auto IV and is hosted by hardcore punk musician Jimmy Gestapo. Some mistake the station as being metal due to the music being fast and heavy. On multiplayer many players describe this radio station with their own renditions, like: "the hardcore station", "that brutal station", etc. LCHC plays music from the NYHC (New York Hardcore) music scene.

Grand Theft Auto IV rendition:

DJ: Jimmy Gestapo, the vocalist of Murphy's Law and the only founding member still in the band. Mostly punk rock songs made in the 1980s, the setlist pays homage to New York City's rock scene at CBGB, an iconic bar where most of the bands featured (except possibly Maximum Penalty and Underdog) have performed at one point or another.

The Lost and Damned and Episodes from Liberty City rendition:

DJ: Max Cavalera, the Brazilian-born frontman of metal bands Sepultura (his first and most famous band, formed in 1984), Soulfly and Cavalera Conspiracy. His segment is referred to as the "Blood Fire War Hate Death Metal Show", having transitioned from hardcore punk to even heavier black and death metal, which many fans believe should not have mixed with the previous material (which it does not in GTA: EFLC).

Trivia

  • It is possible, that L.C.H.C. is the favourite radio station of the Irish American Killers in Liberty City. The song "Day In The Life" by Murphy's Law could be heard in trailer of Packie McReary and Bucky Sligo's pals listen to this station in his crib.
