Destroyed is the first full-length studio album by punk band Sloppy Seconds. It was released in 1989 on Toxic Shock Records on LP and cassette in the US (with a CD release on Metal Blade Records), while it was released with a slightly different track list on Metal Blade Records in the UK on LP and CD. The album was reissued on Last Resort Records in 1995, Coldfront records on October 15, 2002, and Kid Tested Records in 2009 (to coincide with the album's 20th anniversary). The album cover is a parody of the Kiss album Destroyer from 1976.
