Beat Up the NME (often subtitled 60 Knockout Minutes Mixed By Fatboy Slim) was a free cassette tape given away with the NME in 1997. It was given the NME tape title of NME NORM1.

The collection was compiled by Fatboy Slim and engineered by long time Cook collaborator Simon Thornton. The mix collects together numerous signature tracks from the late 90's Big Beat era and mixes this with earlier hip-hop and electro sounds.

In many ways, Beat Up the NME is a follow-up to another Big Beat cassette tape given free in the NME which was called Xmas Dust Up. This cassette was released in 1994 and mixed by The Chemical Brothers (whilst they were still known as The Dust Brothers)
