"Live from Planet X" is a live album by MF DOOM, released on March 5, 2005 through Nature Sounds. It was recorded live in San Francisco, California, on 15 August, 2004. Originally titled "Live at the DNA Lounge", the album was initially given away with "Special Herbs, Vols. 5 & 6", an instrumental hip hop album by DOOM under his "Metal Fingers" alias. It contains tracks from almost all DOOM-related projects at that point, including "", "Vaudeville Villain" and "Madvillainy".

The incorrect listing of "Go with the Drawls" and "Gas Flows" is the result of a miscommunication between the DJ and DOOM. The beat for the track "Go with the Drawls" begins while DOOM begins to rap "Gas Flows". However, after the first verse, DOOM instructs him to switch the beat to the "Gas Drawls" and they begin the song again.

Critical reaction

The live album received mixed reactions at the time of its release. Peter Hepburn, writing for American music website Cokemachineglow, awarded the album a score of 81% and praised it by saying:

However, some viewed the album as a cash-in. Although praising some aspects of the album, Stylus Magazine writer David Drake concluding his review by saying:
