"The Dicks Hate the Police" (usually shortened to "Hate the Police") is the debut release and 7" single from the American hardcore punk band The Dicks, released in 1980. The record was released on the band's own Radical Records imprint (not to be confused with R Radical Records, the imprint run by MDC). In 1989, Mudhoney covered the track on the Boiled Beef & Rotting Teeth EP, being released as a single as well soon after and becoming a staple of their live gigs.
