Things Falling Apart is the second remix album by American industrial rock band Nine Inch Nails, released on November 21, 2000 by Nothing Records and Interscope Records. It is the companion remix disc to The Fragile. The US promotional CD single for "Into the Void" is also labeled as "Halo 16".[6]

Upon release, Things Falling Apart was released to critically panning reviews. Among the album's detractors was NME, who rated it 10 out of 10 as a joke in contrast to the text describing the magazine's dislike of the album. "10 Miles High" is the only song that was a B-side to a Nine Inch Nails single to be included on the album. It was only released on the vinyl version of The Fragile, while appearing as a B-side to the band's 1999 single "We're in This Together".
