"Destroyer" is a song by industrial metal band Static-X and the second single from their album Cannibal. The song was released digitally on 13 February 2007. On the U.S. weekly Mainstream Rock chart, it peaked at number 23.

The video was filmed on 7 March and, according to band member Wayne Static, it features two roller derby teams and has a 1970s theme. Most of the roller derby girls featured in the video originate from the Central Coast Roller Derby in San Luis Obispo, California.[citation needed] In the video, several illegal roller derby moves are shown - such as clotheslining an opponent and punching during a fight. The band members appear in the video as themselves and other people attending the roller derby, all with penis innuendos for names. Wayne Static appears as the derby's announcer, "Dick Hurtz." Tony Campos and Nick Oshiro are coaches for the two teams, "Mike Rotch" and "Mon Keedick" and Koichi Fukuda appears as a crazed fan, "Don Keedick."

On March 20, 2007, Static-X released the "Destroyer EP" exclusively at Hot Topic stores across the United States.

The song was featured in the commercial for WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2008.
