Back 2 Base X is the fifth studio album by American punk rock band Hed PE. Released on June 6, 2006, it is the band's first release on Suburban Noize.


Back 2 Base X was influenced by classic punk bands such as the Sex Pistols and the Clash,[4] and was intended as a return to the basics of rock music, and did not rely as heavily on studio enhancement as previous releases.[5]

Back 2 Base X peaked at #12 on the Top Independent Albums chart, #154 on the Top Internet Albums Chart and at #154 on the Billboard 200.[10]

Allmusic's Rob Theakston wrote that "Back 2 Base X suffers from the same problems as Amerika: it tries to be conceptual in thought à la Tool and vicious in its political commentary à la Fugazi or System of a Down, but somehow falls short by sounding like an angry stoner on a soapbox. It won't win any new fans, but existing fans of (hed) pe's work won't be turning their backs away from the band in anger anytime soon, either."[3]
