    • "Yappie Feet" only appears in the NTSC/PAL/De La releases of Jet Set Radio.

Alternative versions[]

  • "'Bout the City" has an alternative recording that appears in the international releases of Jet Set Radio. This version takes out the repeated doo-wops and replaces them with the word "everybody". It was done because the team believed "doo-wop" would have offended people.[2]
  • "Funky Radio" has an extended version of the song called "Jet Grind Radio" that is around 4:10 in length. The vocals repeat and fade out in this version.

Conceptual/temporary songs[]

  • "Ferry Men" by Guitar Vader was used as a conceptual theme for Poison Jam. It was ultimately turned down in favor of "Super Brothers" instead. The song was given out to fans on a two-song cassette tape at an event called Guitar Vader Meets Jet Set Radio. The other song included was the original version of "I Love Love You".[3]
  • "Fantastic Boobie Band" and "Pizza Delivery Man on Harley-Davidson" were provisional songs in the E3 beta of Jet Set Radio. The songs were used for the Kogane-cho missions and seemingly were replaced later on. [4]

Promotional[]

  • "What Lurks on Channel X? (XXX Mix)", "Set It Off", "Hit List", and "Girls" were exclusive tracks on the Jet Grind Radio Music Sampler pre-order bonus disc.
    • Despite what some fans have claimed, the songs were never intended for the game nor went unused and were possibly included on there for promotional reasons.
  • "Re-Introduction", "Start the Commotion" and the Stanton Warriors remix of "Jump 'n Shout" were used in the Jet Grind Radio E3 presentation. Besides that there is no confirmation if they were ever going to appear in the game.

Censorship[]

  • "Just Got Wicked" by Cold appears censored in game, censoring the word "motherfuckers". Despite this, it appears uncensored on the Jet Grind Radio Music Sampler.
  • Both "Set It Off" and "Hit List" from Shuvel are heavily censored throughout the music sampler to the point where some words like "gun" are blanked out.
  • "Girls" by Lefty is is also censored on the sampler as the word "goddamn" is slightly edited.

Uncredited artists[]

  • In "Mischievous Boy", the vocalist for the song is Yoshika Sekine, a musical colleague of Shunsuke Kida, aka Castle Logical.[5]
  • Neither remixer of Rob Zombie's songs were credited. The remixer of "Dragula" is Charlie Closuer, and the remixer "What Lurks on Channel X?" is Spacetruckers.

General[]

  • "Moody's Shuffle" and the instrumental for "Improvise" only appear in cutscenes throughout the game.

  • The American rock songs that were added in the game do not play fully throughout and are instead 30 seconds to one minute cuts of the pieces.
  • In relation to the American rock songs, Naganuma would question the fact that audiences in Japan were not able to hear "Dragula", "Just Got Wicked" and "Slow" in game as he learned that De La Jet Set Radio took the three exclusive songs from the PAL release instead.[8]

  • "Let Mom Sleep" and "Everybody Jump Around" would reappear in Sega Superstars Tennis.
