Thankfully, custom soundtrack options oftentimes allow me to rectify that situation or at least complement the default selection of music.
I think V's soundtrack was better then IV's, I liked most of the San Andreas stuff(except for K-Rose, not a country fan in the least), I liked III's original music.
Watch Dogs had a few good artists(Alice Cooper, Nas, Ministry, 2 Chainz, Wu Tang Clan), but most of the songs just faded into the background for me and I found myself skipping quite a bit.
Other sandbox games with good soundtracks are the Saints Row series, Driver: Parallel Lines and Scarface: The World Is Yours.
