Notes

  • Many of the tracks were later reused in Fallout 2 and Fallout: New Vegas soundtracks.
  • The soundtrack CD did not include the intro song, "Maybe" which can be found in the in-game music files.
  • "A Trader's Life" contains similar percussion and structure to "Little Sister" by O'Rang from the album Ambient Isolationism. "A Trader's Life" also uses a sample of horns used in an unknown track from The X Files episode S01E05: Jersey Devil
  • The track "City of the Dead" appears to have been primarily based upon the first minute and fifty seconds of "'Self-Strangulation" by Techno Animal from the album Ambient Isolationism, albeit slowed down, and louder. Shares some characteristics with "Tassels" by Aphex Twin from his album Selected Ambient Works Volume II.
  • The tracks "Desert Wind" and "Flame of the Ancient World" contain a sample from "Mirror Image" in John Carpenter's movie "Prince of Darkness" (the sound comes approximately 3:12 until 4:04).
  • The track "Desert Wind" appears to take heavy inspiration from Aphex Twin's "Grey Stripe" from his album Selected Ambient Works Volume II.
  • The track "Followers Credo" samples the string elements from "Trees" by Aphex Twin from his album Selected Ambient Works Volume II.
  • The track "City of Lost Angels" seems to be a slower, slightly modified and edited version of "Grass" by Aphex Twin from his album Selected Ambient Works Volume II.
  • "Khans of New California" appears to use a toned down sample from "Silver Rain Fell (Deep Water Mix)" by Scorn from the album Ambient Isolationism specifically 2.06 onwards.
  • The track "Moribund World" takes heavy inspiration from "Window Sill" by Aphex Twin from his album Selected Ambient Works Volume II.
  • The track "Radiation Storm" is based on the instrumentals of "Maria" by Dave Sylvian.
  • The track "Underground Troubles" primary beat takes inspiration from the composition of "Matchsticks" by Aphex Twin from his album Selected Ambient Works Volume II.
  • 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.
  • "Vault of the Future" uses a sample of a Russian cold war-era speech about nuclear weapons (which is currently unknown) that was featured in the intro of "To Have and To Hold" by Depeche Mode.
