One issue with using major hit songs in a game is that eventually, the licensing agreement is going to expire and with how we’re constantly connected online, the songs will be silently removed and replaced. Rockstar Games announced earlier this month that a slew of licensed material would go bye-bye from Grand Theft Auto IV. That day has come!

Here is the list of songs that you will no longer be able to run over hookers while bobbing your head to:
