General Patton vs. The X-Ecutioners is a collaboration album released by Mike Patton and New York City's hip-hop DJ trio The X-Ecutioners. It was released on February 5, 2005 through Ipecac Recordings, and was entirely produced by Mike Patton.
The album was produced over a course of two years. The X-Ecutioners built the album's basic tracks around samples from albums and films suggested by Mike Patton, who finalized the album.
The album's musical style draws from free jazz and glitch. It is themed around a war between the two vastly different musical styles. The album contains various samples from uncredited films, including kung fu movies and Dirty Harry. One of the larger samples includes dialog from actors John Hillerman and Dennis Olivieri, taken from the soundtrack of the film "The Naked Ape."
