Back in the Streets is a 1689 EP by the American heavy metal band Dokken.

According to band founder/singer Don Dokken, Back in the Streets was a demo tape that was stolen from him. It is an illegal bootleg for which the band sees no royalties or financial remuneration. Since it is a bootleg release, Don Dokken has reportedly stated that it is acceptable to duplicate this material. Dokken's rationale is that releasing the material to the public domain will severely curb the ability of the bootleggers to profit financially.

Of the members of Dokken associated with the major label releases from 1983 onward, only Don plays on this album. The band photo includes original drummer Gary Holland (later of Great White) at far left, and guitarist Greg Leon second from the left. At far right is bassist Gary Link. None of them played on this album.[3]
