Ok, is anyone else sick of almost every song on GNR? I know I'm sick of hearing 'Maybe' and 'I Don't Want to Set the World on Fire'. So here's my question, does anyone else want some sort of Music DLC pack? If so list some good 50's music. One I would love to see would be 'Dear Hearts and Gentle People' by Bob Crosby. I love that song, and it was in the trailer, but I was sad when it didn't make it to the game. Also I know that some has to do with licensing of the songs, but I'm just saying. The add-ons could be like 5$ or so? SuSpence95 18:52, 24 May 2009 (UTC)

I would really enjoy a 1950's rockabilly station. Elvis and Jerry Lee Lewis anyone? LJ Carrion 19:49, 24 May 2009 (UTC)

Hate to be anal, but the GNR music is mostly from the early forties. Not that Great Balls of Fire wouldn't be perfect. Imp of the Perverse 19:57, 24 May 2009 (UTC)

True, Anything Goes by Cole Porter is from 1934 (I think). Thinking about it however, there's a lot of good music which would fit in pretty well with FO3, save for it being from the 50s and 60s. Makes you kind of curious what ingame media we'll have for New Vegas. LJ Carrion 19:59, 24 May 2009 (UTC)

Download a few songs, put them on a USB harddrive or USB memory card or your ipod or mp3 player, connect it to xbox 360 then play them, easy as that, rather have them work on something else than bring us new music, don't even listen to GNR. 20:01, 24 May 2009 (UTC)

I do that all of the time. But having an ingame radio station is that much more satisfying. Fallout 3 makes radio signals drop volume when you talk to people, and Enclave Radio as well as GNR both have DJs to share a few words between songs. I can't complain, the radio stations of FO3 are epic, and the musical score is pretty damn good, but it gets old, which is what the original poster was saying. lol I just shot a Talon Company guy off of a catwalk at one of those Satcom arrays and he flailed and did a barrel roll down to the ground.

Well, I like to listen to GNR occasionally if I'm alone, wandering the wasteland. Also, I've said it before and I'll say it again. I don't have an Xbox. Why do people assume that everyone on this wiki has a frickin' Xbox or PC. I think AngryNorwegianDude is the only one I know who also has the PS3 version! SuSpence95 20:16, 24 May 2009 (UTC)

I play on PS3,too.And If I could add on some music,I would be seeking inspiration from FO:BOS cuz they had all the ROCKING music.Here's my idea:Black Lightning Radio presented by some crazy ass raider.Yes,that's right:A heavy Metal Raider station with:

  • Bulls on Parade-Killswitch Engaged
  • Stricken
  • Gaurded
  • Down with the sickness-Disturbed
  • Metalica
  • Space Lord

And some other crap...Good idead,anyone? HuangLee 21:20, 24 May 2009 (UTC)

Did Killswitch Engage do a cover of Rage Against the Machines's "Bulls on Parade"? Butcher Pete 04:30, 25 May 2009 (UTC)
Actually,now that you mention it,it was Rage against the machines.I knew it was some band with Tom Morello in it. HuangLee 18:50, 25 May 2009 (UTC)

It would be awesome if I was sneaking up on a raider camp which just happened to be blaring Ride the Lightning (by Metallica) and it's night time and they are all getting wasted, and I pick them off one by one and they can't hear me doing so. Pure epicness. Or a mission where you use any type of music to attract a large horde of feral ghouls so that you can safely get around them or escort someone around them to safety.

How about some Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin for New Vegas, lol. Music is the thing that best conveys the time period. I would like, in a DLC or better for New Vegas, more radio stations than 2. Maybe one that is pre-war looped talk radio, a post-war Chinese Propaganda station, rockabilly, and jazz. Best yet, has anyone heard the Illinois Street Bar station on Soma FM? If you know what I mean, then you'll understand how well that would work in Fallout. Butcher Pete 04:30, 25 May 2009 (UTC)

Frank Sinatra would be awesome!

Yes, definatly get some Rat Pack, MoTown anything that fits that 50s horn driven vibe.--JiNX Bloodfang 06:44, 25 May 2009 (UTC)

A Kiss To Build A Dream On, by Louis Armstrong. I first discovered that song during the FO2 opening sequence. Broeman 11:22, 25 May 2009 (UTC)

Magic Moments by Perry Como, on repeat, throughout the entire Tranquility Lane simulation. Also anything from the Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas soundtrack, including the intros by Johnny Depp. And Louis Prima's Just a Gigolo. Bioshock's already laid claim to Beyond the Sea by Bobby Darin, but he's also got the best version of Mack the Knife, which fits Fallout better anyway. Also, Your Love by The Outfield, for GTA nostalgia. The End, by The Doors. Imp of the Perverse 19:28, 25 May 2009 (UTC)

Do I Worry, Just a shanty in old shanty town- the ink spots

'Dear Hearts and Gentle People', and 'A Kiss To Build A Dream On' are both awesome songs. My favorites on Fallout 3 are 'Way back Home','Maybe', and 'Butcher Pete'. kill the overseer!
