==Overview==

*"Exile Vilify" is heard during the ''Portal 2''’s second chapter ''The Cold Boot'', through an Aperture Science Radio found in the Ratman den located near Test Chamber 03. It is one of three songs featured in the game, the others being "Want You Gone", written by Jonathan Coulton and performed by Ellen McLain, and "Cara Mia".

*Originally, it was intended to be used for a "fake ending" Easter egg located about 20 minutes into the game. When this became impossible to execute, the song was rewritten to make it more sombre and was put into a Ratman den.http//www.podcast17.com/interviews/audio/mike-morasky Mike Morasky interview at Podcast 17
