Molly Hatchet is the self-titled debut album by American southern rock band Molly Hatchet, released in 1978 (see 1978 in music). The cover is a painting by Frank Frazetta entitled "The Death Dealer". Starting off both the album itself and the recording career of the band, the first song famously begins with lead singer Danny Joe Brown growling "Hell yeah!"

"Dreams I'll Never See" is a cover of The Allman Brothers Band's song "Dreams" from their debut album, via Buddy Miles's reworking of the song from Them Changes (1970).[3]
