    Ive been playing Fallout 3 for a while now and I can't help but love that style of music. My teacher started playing that today in my architecture class and I couldn't help but think "I need some of that on my iPod." So does anyone know any good artist? Any suggestions would be welcomed.

    Find someone with satellite radio and have them record the 40s station. XM has a fantastic 40's on 4 that has the music from then but also has some of the stuff in the 30s of the same breed too. A lot of the stuff is so dated you can get them insanely cheap in multi-CD packs for little money at all at many places too. Big Band music and the like, including 30s/40s swing is fantastic.
