* ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 1}}'': The one that started it all: "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wp2Hwi9qM48 Maybe]]" by the Ink Spots, which perfectly fits [[EstablishingSeriesMoment the opening]] [[spoiler:and [[BookEnds ending]]]] of ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 1}}''.
* ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 2}}'': The relaxing alternate world map theme that plays when driving the car, "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3jxn1sqAQ-c My Chrysalis Highwayman]]". It's a shame that you won't hear it very often since you'll probably reach your destination before the intro is finished playing. [[FridgeBrilliance Of course, you don't need to leave the map screen immediately after you arrive at your destination…]]
* ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'':
** "I Don't Want to Set the World on Fire," especially if you take its lyrics and apply them to the events of the game.[[note]]It can apply to Fallout 1 as well, since Interplay originally intended to use this tune until they couldn't get the license[[/note]]
** Many of the songs from ''Fallout 3'' are deliciously ironic. "Let's Go Sunning" comes to mind.
** And for sheer EarWorm-itude, "Butcher Pete". Which is now stuck in your head and will be for the next fifteen hours. You're welcome.
** Also notable for getting stuck in your head and refusing to leave: "Bongo, bongo, bongo, I don't wanna leave the Congo, oh no no no no..."
** And not just songs, soundtracks are awesome too. Take "Battle 1" playing when fighting a Super Mutant Behemoth with a Fat Man. And "Battle 5", which is actually titled "Behemoth" on the soundtrack.
** There are few things more satisfying than roaming the Wasteland and blasting the monster's heads while listening to Cole Porter's "Anything Goes". SoundtrackDissonance at its best!
* ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'':
** This game is not without its EarWorms. See: "Jingle Jangle Jingle", "Something's Gotta Give", and "Ain't That A Kick In the Head".
** If ever there were a song to make headshots by, "Big Iron" is it.
** "Lone Star" is always a good one to listen while roaming the Mojave Wasteland.
--->I know my home is waiting for me by the river shore!\\
I know that all the ones I love will welcome me once more!\\
In dreams I see them now, though it seems I'm bound to roam\\
My thoughts are still of Texas and of Home!
%%** "Dam Nation", the FinalDungeon theme.
%%** "Blue Moon".
* ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'':
** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=khTwu14CXcA main theme]] is very atmospheric and packs some serious punches.
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hTwOhefBee4 "Rebuild, Renew"]] and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ob_eK3e4520 "Of the People, for the People"]], two of the city themes, both of which convey the feeling of a wasteland society that is rugged, but with hope for rebuilding.
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y2vsdbdtajc "Still Standing"]], one of the Minutemen themes, which strikes just the right chord between hopeful, militaristic, and heroic.
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=njUYNDbWrao The Institute's theme]], which has a fittingly futuristic sound with an also fitting sinister and apprehensive hint to it.
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-1HZGZNP_bU Dominant Species]], one of the combat tracks, is an epic remix of the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kdOKjUfMPe0 main theme]]. There's a good reason it was used for the game's launch trailer.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sonLd-32ns4 "The End of the World"]] by Skeeter Davis.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KXSUEU7ISfQ "Atom Bomb Baby"]] is a great song to listen to while wreaking havoc in the wasteland.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-XkiDs2_u8Q "The Wanderer"]] by Dion & The Del Satins. Fairly catchy on its own, but it also acts as an ironic, and tragic, contrast to the main character's situation. It adds to the emotional depth of the game.
** Lynda Carter, who voices the Third Rail's lounge singer, Magnolia, recorded some fantastic songs for the game, like the upbeat [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C0f8YVkodSQ "Baby, It's Just You"]] or the sultry, innuendo-laden [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uvRczg5TcME "Good Neighbor"]]
