Lars Frederiksen and the Bastards is the eponymous debut studio album by the American punk rock band Lars Frederiksen and the Bastards. It was released on March 20, 2001 via Hellcat Records.[4][5] The album peaked at #26 on the Independent Albums[6] and #49 on the Heatseekers Albums.[7]

All of the songs were written by lead singer/guitarist Lars Frederiksen and his Rancid bandmate Tim Armstrong, with the exception of two covers, Billy Bragg's "To Have and to Have Not" and Eddie Holland's "Leavin Here". "Campbell, CA" borrows the melody from white power skinhead band Skrewdriver's version of "Tomorrow Belongs to Me", which originally appeared in the album Hail the New Dawn.

The song "Dead American" was used by wrestler Vampiro as his entrance music on his independent circuit.
