Drive by Shooting is a hardcore punk solo E.P. by Henry Rollins, credited as "Henrietta Collins and The Wifebeating Childhaters", which served as a precursor to the Rollins Band.

This recording is a mix of original songs and Rollins's versions of material by others. There is a cover of "Ex Lion Tamer" originally by the UK punk band Wire and a re-vision of a Queen's "We Will Rock You" with different lyrics. The title song is a parody of a cheery 1960s Beach Boys-style song as written by a violent street gang ("We're gonna get in our car / Gonna go go go / Gonna drive to a neighborhood / Kill someone we don't know.")
