They Were Born to Kill is a bootleg[2] EP released by American punk rock band The Offspring in 1991. It features early versions of "Jennifer Lost The War" and "Out on Patrol", the first and third song on the band's debut and self-titled album – The Offspring – which was released two years earlier.[3] Both songs were taken from the Side B of the 1988's Tehran demo tape.[4] It was the first Offspring album (though only a bootleg) to feature a distinctive font that was used as their logo up until their breakthrough album Smash.

This bootleg's name, cover, and font were all taken from the 1987 film, coincidentally called The Offspring. They Were Born to Kill was the film's tagline in America.
