There's a tool called "The Inferno" sold at some home improvement stores.
If you don't burn down the whole neighborhood using it, I can't imagine a
lawn that could live through it. The chances of starting soemthing that you
can't control are pretty grim, though. It's pretty dangerous.
Are you afraid of the chemicals? If not then it's a fairly simple procedure.
Whack the whole thing with roundup. Give it a 2nd application in a couple of
weeks. You then just have to get rid of the dead stuff.
The patent rights on Round Up have expired and you can now buy it in
generic form for much less. Kill All is the name of one generic product
that is the exact equal of Round Up. There is at least one other, but its
name slips my memory.

Applied correctly, it's always done wonders for me.
As for removing the old grass once it's been killed, a sod cutter will
make the removal so much easier that it would still be a bargain at twice
the (rental) price.
But then, you could just use the sod cutter and skip the
chemicals. Removing the sod will take most of the weed seeds
away, so you will end up with a much more weed free result than
just using chemicals.
