* 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}}''.


[[folder: ''Video Game/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…]]


[[folder: ''Video Game/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. Even better if you're using a knife to attack opponents.
* 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!


[[folder: ''Video Game/Fallout New Vegas'': ]]

* This game is not without its {{Ear Worm}}s. See: "Jingle Jangle Jingle", "Something's Gotta Give", and "Ain't That A Kick In the Head".
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GcgJnbCul-0 The main theme.]] Really fits the western feel of the game.
* 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!
* "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5SmK00aLqnU Dam Nation]]", the FinalDungeon theme. The song has a heavy beat as the drums of war are struck as both the [=NCR=] and Caesar's Legion fight high above the Colorado.
* "Blue Moon", The first song that plays in the game, has the classic Vegas feel to it.


[[folder: ''Video Game/Fallout 4'' ]]

* The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kzvZE4BY0hY main theme]] is very atmospheric and packs some serious punches. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RQHa9xlZ3nk An epic rock cover made it more wild with guitar riffing.]]
* [[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 ("Imagine Utopia")]], which has a fittingly futuristic and hopeful sound with an also fittingly sinister, mysterious, 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. A somber song that greatly fits the apocalyptic setting and the Sole Survivor's situation.
* [[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"]]
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uPMC9Mg03yE "Rise and Prevail"]] is one of the more epic combat tracks, perfect for taking out Raiders and Gunners to.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ANI6oj8p2M "Uranium Fever"]] by Elton Britt. This song is ''really'' catchy, and will now be stuck in your head for a damn long time.
-->Uraaaanium fever has done and got me down\\
Uraaaanium fever is spreadin' all around\\
With a Geiger counter in my hand\\
I'm goin' out to stake me some government land\\
Uranium fever has done and got me down!"
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DIneiOpuS2M The Nuka World theme]] is delightfully cheesy and caricatured for a theme park jingle, and as always gives off the skewed disconnect between Pre-War America and the horrific Raider-infested reality.
* '''All''' of the ''Far Harbor'' soundtrack, but most notably [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iMBt9L8Zgog&t=60s "Our Island"]]. It nails down the lonely, desolate tone and mysterious atmosphere of the DLC perfectly.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rZePVyL2uEU "The Children Of Atom"]] has both a haunting tone along with ethereal echoing Gregorian-style chanting, as if one of the Children of Atom is singing a hymn to their holy god. It has a very foreboding feel to it and even calls to mind [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h38zN_vF_dQ "Acolytes of a New God"]] from ''{{VideoGame/Fallout|1}}''. Really makes you realize how those silly kooks in Megaton [[NotSoHarmlessVillain aren't just]] [[FromNobodyToNightmare whistlin' Dixie anymore, huh?]]
* The {{Filk Song}}s are also worthy of mention.
** First and foremost, there's [[https://youtu.be/NJS3bIpGYT0 "Going Nuclear"]] and [[https://youtu.be/nTY9JimeXuw "Some Things Never Change"]], both from Music/MiracleOfSound. The first is an upbeat swing piece about the singer "going nuclear" out in the Wasteland and having fun, while the second is a much more somber piece about the state that the world has fallen into and how the Sole Survivor is perceiving it through the filter of their Pre-War life. Both greatly fit with the story's themes and tone - "Going Nuclear" sounds like it could be heard right after "Baby, It's Just You" on Diamond City Radio, while the somber and tragic tone of "Some Things" would fit perfectly with the background OST. "Some Things" also carries several stylistic choices and a lyrical callback to his earlier piece for ''{{VideoGame/Fallout 3}}'', [[https://youtu.be/D_KEFGY-CPg "Beauty Bleak."]]
** [=J.T.=] Machinima's ''incredible'' [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7DV0J-Q7e5w "Welcome To My Apocalypse,"]] which more or less consists of an '''epic''' BoastfulRap from the Sole Survivor as they tear through [[CrapsackWorld the Commonwealth]] like a [[CurbStompBattle hot knife through butter]], bragging about their numerous acts of badassery while [[QuestForIdentity trying to rebuild their lives]].
