"If You Don't Want Me to Destroy You" is the fourth single, and the last to be taken from the album Fuzzy Logic, by Super Furry Animals. It reached #18 on the UK Singles Chart on its release in September 1996.[1]

The packaging of the single features a quote in Welsh, 'Bydded Mae sawl ffordd i gael Wil i'w wely', which roughly translates into English as 'There's more than one way to get Will to bed'.

B-side "(Nid) Hon Yw'r Gân Sy'n Mynd I Achub Yr Iaith" translates in English as "This Is (Not) The Song That Will Save The Welsh Language"

"The Man Don't Give a Fuck" was originally intended to be released as a B-side on the "If You Don't Want Me to Destroy You" single, however Steely Dan frontman Donald Fagen refused to clear a sample of the track "Show Biz Kids" which features prominently on the track and it was replaced by "Guacamole".[2]
