E. Von Dahl Killed the Locals is the debut album by The Matches, originally self-released in 2003 and later re-released on Epitaph Records in 2004.

The self release contained the track "Superman" which was removed from the Epitaph re-release because the band felt it would be a good bonus to those fans who had been with them from the beginning. The versions of "Scratched Out" and "The Jack Slap Cheer" that appear on the Epitaph Records version each have changed lyrics due, in both cases, to copyright liability. The Epitaph re-release contained two new tracks, "Borderline Creep" and "More Than Local Boys" although "Superman" was removed and "Scratched Out" was renamed as "Track 11".

The album title is a reference to the band's legal battle with Yvonne Doll and their subsequent name change from The Locals to The Matches.
