Boys on the Docks is an EP, and the debut CD, by the Dropkick Murphys.

"Never Alone" and a Murphys' Pub Version of "Boys on the Docks" were also on their debut album, Do or Die, which was released the next year. "Caps and Bottles" was later recorded for their 2001 album, Sing Loud, Sing Proud! "In the Streets of Boston" was recorded by The Business as "In the Streets of London" on their split album with the Dropkick Murphys, Mob Mentality.

Bass player Ken Casey is the only musician that has been with the band since this first EP (drummer Matt Kelly would join shortly after, and singer Al Barr would join the next year)
