Mekanïk Destruktïẁ Kommandöh, also abbreviated as MDK, is the third studio album by French progressive rock band Magma, released in December 1973. Magma's original recording of the composition that makes up the album was refused by the record company at the time, but was eventually released as Mekanïk Kommandöh in 1989.

MDK is the group's most famous and acclaimed record. The French edition of Rolling Stone magazine named the album the 33rd greatest French rock album.[3] In 2015, Rolling Stone ranked the album 24th on its list of the '50 Greatest Prog Rock Albums of All Time'[4].
