Fallout: The Soundtrack
Plays at Brotherhood of Steel base in Fallout. It was re-used in Fallout: New Vegas when outside Vault 22, in Freeside, while standing near the Strip's north gate, in one of the houses in Camp Searchlight, in Victor's shack, in Z-9 Crotalus DNA preservation lab in Old World Blues, in The Courier's Mile in Lonesome Road, and in the executive suites in Dead Money.
A Trader's Life
The Vault of the Future
Vats of Goo
Plays on the Fallout intro and the Mariposa Military Base in Fallout, as well as Broken Hills, Vault 13 and the Sierra Army Depot in Fallout 2. The track's name refers to the large vats of a mysterious substance encountered in the bowels of the base.
City of the Dead
City of Lost Angels
Followers' Credo (Thunder)
The track was originally composed for another game, Netstorm. When being added to the Fallout soundtrack, the track was simply retooled to remove the periodic thunder sound effects and deep rumble. This also shortened the song by a full minute from 3:45 to 2:45.
Acolytes of the New God
Plays at the Cathedral in Fallout. It was re-used in Fallout: New Vegas at the Silver Rush, the Ultra-Luxe, outside of Cannibal Johnson's cave, near the Red Rock drug lab, in the Cantina Madrid kitchen in Dead Money, and at Zion Ranger station and Angel cave in Honest Hearts.
Flame of the Ancient World
Plays in the Los Angeles vault in Fallout. It was re-used in Fallout: New Vegas in various parts of the Mojave Wasteland, in Angel cave from Honest Hearts and at the Hopeville missile silo bunker in Lonesome Road.
