Kill from the Heart is an album by the American hardcore punk band The Dicks. Widely considered a classic of the genre, it was the band's first full-length album and the last to feature the group's original Texas-based line up. The album finds the band mixing its hardcore punk style with blues aesthetics. Tim Kerr of the Big Boys appears on the song "Anti-Klan (Part Two)". "Anti-Klan (Parts One and Two)", "Rich Daddy", "No Nazi's Friend", and "Kill From The Heart" appear on the 1980-1986 CD compilation on Alternative Tentacles. The album was reissued on CD & LP by Alternative Tentacles in 2012.
