I disagree this was a desecration of art, but I don't think it's worth arguing over seeing as we just don't see eye-to-eye on this matter. We'll just have to agree to disagree.
tfishell: GOG is not going to remove the game from their store no matter how much you may want them to. It is up to 2K to re-negotiate the music rights, and obviously they don't want to for reasons between them and music companies. I do not think the hosted music will be affected nor will any anti-music patches happen.
Ancient-Red-Dragon: I'd argue it's also up to 2k and GOG not to take unethical actions, which releasing a butchered version of the Mafia game is, because it's committing desecration against the art.
I'm wondering: what action are you going to take on this matter, aside from just posting about it on the forums? Surely you have something planned given how angry or at least frustrated you seem over this, based on your posts.
I would suggest you make your case in a new forum thread on the main forum. Make a solid lengthy post why you are disgusted with GOG and why this is a desecration of art (for everyone to see, not just me).
BTW I did make a wish for those who wanted a voice in the wishlist: https://www.gog.com/wishlist/games/mafia_1s_licensed_music
