Built from Scratch is a 2002 album by DJ group The X-Ecutioners. It had one hit single, "It's Goin' Down," which was written, produced, and performed by Linkin Park members Mike Shinoda and Mr. Hahn. They all appear in the video along with Linkin Park members Rob Bourdon and Phoenix on drums and bass, with Wayne Static from Static-X on guitar.

The main album cover is based on Public Enemy's first album, Yo! Bum Rush the Show; an alternative cover simply shows the DJ group's logo and album title on a scratched orange surface (similar as the "It's Goin' Down" single cover).
