This is a list of songs from the console version of The Sims 2. Music was created for the game by real-life artists; including Dix Bruce, Darol Anger, McHale Barone, Eric Valladares, John Cobbett, J Greco, The F*cking Champs, The Humble Brothers, Matmos, Jacen Touchstone, Walt Szalva, Carla Kihlstedt, Sharky Laguana, Jeffery Stott and Jacen Touchstone.

The Sims 2 features nine radio stations with entirely unique music, but reuses music from The Sims 2: Nightlife as background music for the different modes of the game. Many of the songs were originally recorded for The Urbz: Sims in the City and were held over to be used in The Urbz 2, which was ultimately refactored into The Sims 2.

Several real-life songs were rerecorded into Simlish, and can be played individually on a stereo, much like selecting a radio station. These artists are Fischerspooner, MxPx, Paramore, Reggie & the Full Effect, and Trivium.

The nine radio stations available in the game are:

  • Alternative Rock
  • Ambient Dub
  • Bluegrass
  • Industrial
  • Lounge Music
  • Nu-Metal
  • Pop
  • Punk Pop
  • Trance Dance

  • "Jacen Touchstone" is incorrectly credited as "Jacen Touchestone" in the game's credits.
  • The music on the Bluegrass station was originally intended to be included on a country-themed station in the PC game, but was cut before release. One of the songs can be heard in a pre-release montage of music from the game, despite not appearing in the final release. Some of the songs were eventually included in the Seasons and Bon Voyage expansion packs.
  • Nivek Ogre (Skinny Puppy) sings on Deepswell, as revealed here.
