Thrash Anthems is a studio album released by thrash metal band Destruction in 2007. The album is a compilation of re-recordings of old songs and two new songs: "Deposition (Your Heads Will Roll)" and "Profanity".

The limited digipack edition includes one bonus track ("Eternal Ban") and a videoclip for "Total Desaster". The 2-LP version does not include the bonus track and the running order of the tracks is partly different. A sequel to this album titled 'Thrash Anthems II' will be released in June 2017, 10 years after the release of the original Thrash Anthems and will similarly feature a compilation of other classic songs that have been newly rerecorded.
