Butch Walker (born Bradley Glenn Walker on November 14, 1969) is a recording artist, songwriter, and record producer.
Walker grew up in Cartersville, Georgia and stood out as a guitarist and performer in several rock bands in the '80s including Bad Boyz and Byte the Bullet. In 1988, he took Byte the Bullet to LA and they were signed to Virgin Records within the year. The band changed names to Southgang and released two albums, Tainted Angel in 1991 and Group Therapy in 1992. Southgang was one of the first bands to tour China in the early '90s.
Afterwards, Butch took over lead vocals and with ex-SouthGang members Jayce Fincher and Mitch McLee formed several bands in the 90s including Floyds Funk Revival, The Floyds, and the popular pop-rock band Marvelous 3. After the break-up of the band in early 2000, Butch then began a solo career, releasing the albums Left of Self-Centered in 2002 and Letters in 2004, finishing 2005 playing over 200 live shows across both the US and Japan. In 2006 he released an album called "Butch Walker and the Let's Go Out Tonities". Butch Walker was recently featured as a headlining artist on the My Space promoted Inaugural Hotel Cafe tour - supporting independent artists from the Los Angeles Venue of the same name.
Several of his songs have been hits for other artists, including Bowling for Soup's Girl All the Bad Guys Want and Avril Lavigne's #1 Hit My Happy Ending. He has written and produced albums for such artists as Bowling for Soup, Pink, Lindsay Lohan, Avril Lavigne, Lit, Sevendust, The Donnas, American Hi-Fi, and SR-71.
He is also featured in Tommy Lee's new album Tommyland: The Ride in the song "Good Times."
In late 2005, he released his first DVD "Live At Budokan."

- LyricsYou say hello, inside I'm screaming I love you.
You say goodnight, in my mind
I'm sleeping next to you.
You drive away
From my car crash of a heart,
- LyricsMaybe it's just me, but you seem finally happy
I don't think I've seen your face just glow like a neon sign
And maybe we should be alone for ever after,
'Cause even though the nights are long...
At least I'll make it another day
- LyricsLook at you standing there
High as hell, on the roof
Wind blowing hair into your mouth
And no shoes on your toes
Look at me sitting here
- LyricsHey little party girl
Where do you wanna go
I didn't come from your scene
So many people that I should know
Like every door guy in this city
- LyricsSo you grew up in a town where everybody's all the same
Like a city full of zombies going by the same name
Saying eat this, wear that, think ya know just where it's at
When everybody's just alike, now tell me how you deal with that?
