Note[edit | edit source]

  • The soundtrack CD did not include the intro song, "Maybe," which can be found in the in-game music files.
  • The track "Desert Wind" contain sample of sound FX from the song "Mirror Image" in John Carpenter's movie "Prince of Darkness" (the sound comes approximately at 3:13mn until 4:04mn).
  • The track "Desert Wind" appears to be a retooled version of "Grey Stripe" by Aphex Twin from his album Selected Ambient Works Volume II.
  • The track "City of Los Angeles" seems to be a slower, slightly modified and edited version of "Grass" by Aphex Twin from his album Selected Ambient Works Volume II.
  • The track "Moribund World" takes heavy inspiration from "Window Sill" by Aphex Twin from his album Selected Ambient Works Volume II.
  • The track "City of the Dead" has a similar composition as "Tassels" by Aphex Twin from his album Selected Ambient Works Volume II but with the prominent oscillation of a synthesizer removed.
  • The track "Followers Credo" samples the string elements from "Trees" by Aphex Twin from his album Selected Ambient Works Volume II.
  • The track "Radiation Storm" stretches and slows the first half of "Lichen" by Aphex Twin from his album Selected Ambient Works Volume II while overlaying it with various other samples.
  • The track "Underground Troubles" takes inspiration from the composition of "Matchsticks" by Aphex Twin from his album Selected Ambient Works Volume II while overlaying it with various other samples.
  • The track "Vats of Goo" seems to be a toned down, beat-for-beat version of "Alternative 3" by Brian Eno from his album Music for Films.
  • Many of the Fallout tracks were later reused in Fallout 2 and Fallout: New Vegas soundtracks.
