Indestructible is a jazz album by drummer Art Blakey and his Jazz Messengers. It was recorded in 1964 but not released until 1966, and was Blakey's last recording for Blue Note. The bonus track featured on the CD reissue was originally issued on Pisces.

This was the final recording for half of the band's members: Wayne Shorter would leave to join the Miles Davis Quintet and be replaced (briefly) by John Gilmore, bassist Reggie Workman would be replaced by Victor Sproles, and pianist Cedar Walton would leave to be replaced by John Hicks.
