Out My Way is a mini-album released by the alternative rock band the Meat Puppets in 1986. It features a more hard rock oriented sound than the band usually has, leading some critics to say that the sound is similar to southern/hard rock stylings of ZZ Top. The EP was reissued in 1999 by Rykodisc with additional bonus tracks.

The cover art is by Curt Kirkwood.
