"Paralyzer" is the first single from alternative rock band Finger Eleven's fifth album, Them vs. You vs. Me. It was released in March 2007. Finger Eleven's frontman Scott Anderson has said that the single has a feel distinct from the rest of Finger Eleven's music, possessing more of a "dance rock" feel. A radio edit version exists, with the guitar intro dropped.
