    I guess Fallout 3 and NV had pretty decent music that fit the style but I get really annoyed listening to Diamond City Radio. I hate how all the songs are somehow related to bombs or the apocalypse like as if the people of the Commonwealth refuse to listen to anything that isn't blatantly related to nukes. Its just unrealistic and not even subtle; it takes me out of the game. Thoughts?

    One unintended benefit of having bagpipes blaring in your ear is that it reminds you The Witcher 3 exists, a game that is optimized, and has great dialogue.

    I too think the bagpipes feels like they're trying to be Witcher 3. I get that it's Boston but still.

    Fallout 3's ambient music was very, very good. This is acceptable but doesn't quite hit the same ambience.

    Eh... Fallout 3's music wasn't good in my opinion...

    Fallout 3's ambient music barely fit the setting the game was suppose to portray, and the combat tracks were the most generic pieces of music I have ever heard from any Fallout game (or at least, a game labeled as "Fallout").

    One slight nostalgia compliment, SOMETIMES the ambient music strikes a chord of Fallout 1 / 2 Ambiance.

    How many tracks does the Diamond City Radio even have? I feel like it repeats way more often than the New Vegas Radio, but I might be biased. And maybe because I actually enjoyed the New Vegas Radio. Anyway, can't wait for CONELRAD for Fallout 4.

    What's your favorite NV tune? One of mine is 'It's a sin to tell a lie'.

    Big Iron and Blue Moon. But I like the Conelrad mod radio better with it's real life nuclear war tips and ads. :)

    Connelrad was a great mod, another one was one that added FO1/FO2 ambient music into the wasteland, and certain locations. It added miles to the game, that wasn't six thousandth repeat of butcher pete :P

    There are two Butcher Pete songs now... Both sound pretty much identical but with different lyrics. I think, because I never actually listened to them closely. Hate them with passion.

    Yeah, butcher pete is a two part song, lol. And its ok, just really tired of hearing it, and the assumption that that style of song embodies the feeling of post apocalyptica, instead of adding and ironic coutpoint to the world. Its a matter of degrees, really.
