Awesome Music / Fallout

  • Fallout: The one that started it all: "Maybe" by the Ink Spots, which perfectly fits the opening and ending of Fallout.
  • Fallout 2: The relaxing alternate world map theme that plays when driving the car, "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. Of course, you don't need to leave the map screen immediately after you arrive at your destination…
  • 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 
    • Many of the songs from Fallout 3 are deliciously ironic. "Let's Go Sunning" comes to mind.
    • And for sheer Ear Worm-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". Soundtrack Dissonance at its best!
  • Fallout: New Vegas:
    • This game is not without its Ear Worms. See: "Jingle Jangle Jingle", "Something's Gotta Give", and "Ain't That A Kick In the Head".
    • 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!
  • Fallout 4:
    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!"
    • 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.
    • The Far Harbour soundtrack, most notably Our Island. It nails down the lonely, desolate tone and atmosphere of the DLC perfectly.
