Legacy of Brutality is a compilation album of early songs by the American punk rock band The Misfits, released in September 1985. The album contains overdubbed mixes of previously unreleased songs, mainly from the January–February 1978 Static Age sessions. Besides the Box Set, this is the only official album to contain the songs "American Nightmare" and "Who Killed Marilyn?".

This compilation was one of the first (aside from bootlegs) to release many of the Static Age songs to the public. Glenn Danzig, having written all of the songs himself, mixed and produced the album, and overdubbed many tracks from the original song recordings with his own instrumental tracks, creating new versions of the featured songs.
