Burn It Down was a metalcore band from Indianapolis, Indiana, USA, whose full-length album, Let the Dead Bury the Dead, was released in 2000 on Escape Artist Records. Produced by Ed Rose (The Get Up Kids, Coalesce), the album garnered a 4 "K" review in Kerrang! and a 4/5 in Alternative Press. It followed two EPs and a split CD with Racetraitor (whose members formed Fall Out Boy). Burn It Down toured with Shadows Fall, In Flames, Dillinger Escape Plan and Zao before disbanding. Some of the group's members later went on to form Time in Malta. They played their final show at the 2001 Hellfest and played a reunion show in 2005.
"Burn It Down" is also the name of a music festival in Belgium, as well as an Avenged Sevenfold song from their "City of Evil" album.
