"Slayed" is a single by the Big Beat artist Overseer from his album Wreckage.

The song was used by Ken Shamrock as his entrance theme on his last two fights in UFC. In addition, Mauricio Rua used this song as his entrance song for UFC 76, as well as Keith Jardine using it for UFC 89. As well as Rob singing in the song, it samples the song "We'll Bring the House Down" by Slade, hence the song being called "Slayed".[clarification needed] It uses the lines "We'll bring the house down" in more of a high pitch sound than in the 1981 song. Many artists[who?] credit "Slayed" as a groundbreaking song in British DJ music, for its use of rap and ambient sound.

The vocals in the song are done by Zak Speakerfreak.
