Destroy All Monsters (sometimes rendered DAM) is an Ann Arbor, Michigan musical group formed by four artist friends in 1973. Their music touched on elements of punk rock, psychedelic, heavy metal music and noise rock with a heavy dose of performance art. Their name is sometimes thought to have come from a Godzilla movie, but it could also have come from a comic book with the same title. They described their music as "anti-rock." Destroy All Monsters never found mainstream success, but earned some notoriety due to members of notable rock groups The Stooges and MC5 who joined the group.
