Item #: SCP-4XXX Level 2/4XXX
Object Class: Safe Classified


SCP-4XXX (inside SCP-4XXX-A) after its retrieval from Earth's lower exosphere.

Special Containment Procedures:


Traditional study of SCP-4XXX has been suspended indefinitely in lieu of a DoMTaC review.

— Lucas Ellison, Head Theorist

SCP-4XXX will be transported to Study Lab #09 in Section Six (DoMTaC) of Site-107. All personnel can freely view SCP-4XXX until the DoMTaC Head Theorist conducts a testing session; non-DoMTaC personnel may not view the item in person until after a session has closed. Access may be granted if personnel are cleared by either the Site Director or SCP-4XXX's head researcher.


SCP-4XXX is a Maxell brand XLII-S 100 cassette tape labeled with "10M WATTS FOREIGN AFFAIRS #16Ø". Despite this labeling, the tape's recording contains several songs from the American synth-pop band 'Flight Level-180'. SCP-4XXX's anomalous properties manifest whenever the tape is placed in a standard cassette player. When SCP-4XXX is played, the SCP will continue playing until the player is stopped or the player runs out of charge; SCP-4XXX appears to run indefinitely. Additionally, SCP-4XXX never appears to spool while playing.

Item History:

SCP-4XXX was discovered when Foundation Satellite Probe #27-F ("V-GER") located the object floating in orbit in Earth's lower exosphere. The location of the object along with the associated temperatures found in the exosphere were atypical enough to garner an official Foundation investigation. After retrieval and photography of SCP-4XXX and SCP-4XXX-A, several tests concluded that SCP-4XXX was indeed anomalous. It is currently unknown how SCP-4XXX arrived at its initial discovery location - further review is pending on this subject.
