Smashing Pumpkins “1979” will no longer be featured in this video game

Apparently the video game Grand Theft Auto lost its rights to the soundtrack music which used to play “1979” by Smashing Pumpkins and David Bowie’s “Fascination.”

According to Maxim, here is Rockstar’s explanation:

“Due to music licensing restrictions, we are required to remove certain songs from the in-game soundtrack of Grand Theft Auto IV and its Episodes, in particular a large portion of the Russian pop station, Vladivostok FM. However we are replacing some of those songs with a new set of songs on that station. We will update our customer support website with new information as soon as it is available.”
