All the music in Hexen was composed by Kevin Schilder. Unlike earlier Doom engine games, the soundtrack is included in both MUS and Redbook audio formats. If the game's CD-ROM is present, it will prefer playing the latter by default.

1. ^ CD track used when playing with CD audio enabled. Not all songs are available as CD audio, and many CD tracks are used twice to fill in for missing songs. Track numbers with asterisks indicate that the CD track does not match the MUS song. Track 1 on the CD is the game data.
2. ^ Hall, Orb, and Chess are all available as CD music; however, when playing with CD audio, Orb (track 5) is used as the music for all three victory screens. The other two tracks are used elsewhere.
John Romero had requested from Kevin Schilder that the soundtrack for Hexen should be "dark, not like Heretic, not fast and exciting". The 'r' at the end of all lump names comes from Romero, as a mark by Schilder that this arrangement was made according to Romero's specifications.
