There's only so many times you can hear the same song or DJ intro in the Fallout series before its time to turn that Pipboy off or risk throwing it across the Wasteland and letting some Deathclaw eat it so you never have to hear "Ain't That A Kick In The Head" again.
While the options have expanded over time with subsequent entries, this is still one of the weak links of the series. As with any of Bethesda's myriad failings though, the mod community has stepped in to increase your options and keep the game versatile.
Here we're covering 7 of the best radio station mods currently available to keep your listening experience fresh and entertaining!
From indie metal label Rogue Records America comes the heaviest station in the Commonwealth featuring your hosts Johnny Rogue and "Fearless" Jes Fama as they play the best heavy metal of yesteryear before the world went to hell.
There's a ton of hard rock and extreme metal on this playlist, ranging from groups like All Hail The Yeti and Binary Code to more well known outfits like Devildriver and Testament.
Anyone can add in a music playlist for a radio mod, but what's harder is getting music that matches the tone of the radio stations from Fallout 3, New Vegas, and Fallout 4.
No small task, this mod features the addition of 286 new lore-friendly tracks that are all public domain from the '30s - 60's and deal with topics like nuclear fallout and other appropriately '50s topics.
An absurdly highly rated mod, it's clear that a ton of work went into Old World Radio Boston. With a ton of radio stations, there's old timey broadcasts about radiation and high quality voice acting for various new programs in addition to a bunch of added music above and beyond what's included in the vanilla game. Some completely match the theme of the game, and others are just bizarre... like "Pee-Wee's Playlist."
Not just an entirely new radio station added to the game with a custom voiced host, WRVR also includes a new companion in the form of DJ Casey Kessler. In keeping with the lore of the game, songs are very old timey and deal with the local area of the Commonwealth.
Another mega pack of new tracks, "More Where That Came From" adds in more than 100 lore-friendly, thematically appropriate songs to Diamond City Radio. In order to avoid problems with the radio announcer discussing songs that aren't being played when new tracks come on, it also disables Travis' audio segments talking before and after any given song.
This pre-war radio channel is chock full of hilarious ads and public service announcements for lore-friendly products found across Fallout 4, in addition to the Tales From The Commonwealth custom quest line.
The Jetful Radio station adds in two additional hours of content including custom commentary with a host discussing life in the Commonwealth. There's 46 new song additions to boot, significantly increasing the number of songs to listen through while blowing up raiders and helping whatever pointless settlement Preston Garvey has sent you to lately.
There you have it -- seven new radio mods that will drastically expand your listening options while searching for Shaun, building new robotic companions, and taking over Nuka World! What's your favorite new radio station, and what other radio mods should we try out next?
