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 Laguna, 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. Other songs in the game are remastered versions of existing songs from selected artists' work.
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, Kitty Shack, MXPX, Paramore, Reggie & the Full Effect, and Trivium.
The nine radio stations available in the game are:
"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.
