60 Second Wipe Out is the third album from the band Atari Teenage Riot, before their hiatus. This album showcased a newer sound, as Nic Endo had now became a member of the band. Fewer samples were used. Although heavily electronic in sound, the album was recorded on live instruments, that were then fed back and digitally altered. It was mixed by Andy Wallace and features a variety of guest artists including Dino Cazares of Fear Factory, The Arsonists, and Kathleen Hanna. The album was also issued as a double CD which featured a live show from Philadelphia. Other versions also featured the B-side "Paranoid", and "No Remorse (I Wanna Die)" (featuring Slayer) from the Spawn soundtrack.

Empire recalls working on the record with producer Andy Wallace:
