Reverse ground and +5v
Clock an input way too fast
Heat it up far too much (soldering iron/heat gun)
Or, of course, to make things appear dead or damaged,
all you need to do is manually short an input or
output to ground with a wire.
Some chips are suprisingly resiliant. I once tried to
kill a mask PROM on purpose using static electricity.
It took at least three or four good zaps to kill it.
