Overkill is a simple, elegant Mac app, that runs in the background and makes sure iTunes never interrupts your work. It does so by killing the iTunes process each time it launches.


  • Runs silently in the background and kills iTunes
  • Easily pause Overkill if you want to use iTunes
  • Support for both Dark and Light mode of the menu bar
  • Supports auto start
  • Supports any Mac app, e.g. add the Photos app to be killed also
  • No CPU usage, no polling, no analytics, just 300 lines of native Mac code
