V-Rock is a radio station based in Red-Dick, Florida. It broadcasts to Vice City. The station is featured in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories. It was originally hosted by Cousin Ed, until Lazlow took over in 1986, when Grand Theft Auto: Vice City takes place.

The station primarily plays rock, although it also plays some metal. Promos often included comparisons to other stations, saying that while other stations were playing childish xylophone music, V-Rock was playing rock, and members of the band Love Fist often appeared for cameos. The station's mascot was a vulture, as seen in the station's logo, and Lazlow often complained that it got more air time than he did. The V-Rock Hotel in Las Venturas, San Andreas was named after the station and featured its logo in its sign.

Kent Paul often hung out with Love Fist at V-Rock's Vice City headquarters, and gave Tommy Vercetti several missions from there.
