  Speak English or Die is the first album by the thrash/hardcore band Stormtroopers of Death (S.O.D.).

  After Anthrax finished recording Spreading the Disease, there still was some studio time left, so Scott Ian and Charlie Benante called some friends, practiced some songs, and recorded it all within a week.
