The Outlaws is an English instrumental band that recorded in the early 1960s. One time members included Ritchie Blackmore, Chas Hodges, Bobby Graham, Ken Lundgren, Mick Underwood, Reg Hawkins, Billy Kuy and others.

Their name was originally conceived by Joe Meek, who needed a backing group for Mike Berry's "Set Me Free" in 1960. After that recording, they continued being one of the 'house bands' of his recording studio in 304 Holloway Road, London. As such, they were used for recordings, demos and auditions. Many of their songs were written by Meek and credited to his pseudonym Robert Duke. They appeared as themselves in the 1963 British film Live It Up!.

They also recorded singles in their own right, see discography below.
