Dragging Down the Enforcer is the name of the debut album by Outlaw Order, a side-project of the pioneering American sludge metal outfit, Eyehategod. It was released in November 2008 in both jewel case and metal box formats. It was originally due to be released on the 13th and 14 October, but was delayed due to manufacturing issues. There were apparently 13 songs recorded for the album, but the final track listing lists 11, meaning two B-sides exist. Between the release of Legalize Crime and Dragging Down the Enforcer, bassist Justin Grisoli left the band, hence bass parts on the album were recorded by Brian Patton. The track "Double Barrel Solves Everything" previously appeared on the Legalize Crime EP as "D.B.S.E.".
