We Have Come for Your Children is the second and final studio album by the American punk rock band Dead Boys. It was recorded and released in 1978, on Sire Records. The recording of album was troublesome for the group and led to a break because of tensions with producer Felix Pappalardi once the band didn't think he understood their music. When they tried but were unable to get James Williamson of The Stooges to salvage the sessions, the band broke up a short time later.
