Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down) by Nancy Sinatra, over the opening credits. The minimalism of the song only increases the anticipation for the bloodshed ahead. Plus, the guitar is awesome.
Battle Without Honor Or Humanity by Tomoyasu Hotei is famed for its use in fight scenes in . As said in Kill Bill , it makes anything and everything better.
xkcd Not on the soundtrack, but still awesome, Death Rides a Horse (originally written for the movie of the same name), which plays when the Bride calls out O-Ren Ishii.
Also the re-use of Ennio Morricone's "L'Arena" (originally written for The Mercenary) for the Bride's escape.
The Lonely Shepherd, which plays when Beatrix gets her Hattori Hanzo sword, then again in the ending credits of Vol 1.
Morricone's A Silhouette Of Doom, used masterfully for the confrontation between Beatrix and Elle Driver.
Santa Esmeralda's Please Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood, particularly the use of the instrumental break in the song as a lead-in to the Bride's battle with O-Ren Ishii.
Down in Mexico by The Coasters. The scene would be a lot sexier if she wasn't dancing for an aged Kurt Russell, but still...
Hold Tight by Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick, and Tich.
It's So Easy by Willy DeVille.
That theme that plays when Kim, Zoe, and Abby are chasing Stuntman Mike is all kinds of awesome!
"Jack and Jill" is a really touching song, just a lonely melancholic piano playing in a moment of passiveness. You won't really thing it would be THAT kind of Mood Whiplash after watching the rest of the movie, but...
