This article lists all Radio tracks appearing in Driver: Parallel Lines.


All vehicles, including motorcycles are fitted with a radio. The radio will play a random song upon entry, and songs can be cycled through using Z and X on PC, the D-pad on Xbox and PS2, and the left and right buttons on Wii. Each era features songs representing the respective era's music, i.e., 1978's playlist features classic rock, punk, funk, pop and soul music, while 2006 is heavily based on metal, punk rock, indie rock and some hip-hop.

Some songs are exclusive to platform. Some songs may appear only in cutscene.
