Christopher Tyng (born August 1968[citation needed]) is an American composer for film and television. He composed the music for several television series, including Futurama, The O.C., The Job, Knight Rider, Suits, High Incident, and Rescue Me.

As was noted in the audio commentary of the Futurama episode "The Problem with Popplers", Tyng is first and foremost a drummer; indeed, he accredits his composing proficiency to the awkwardness of lugging a drum set. As a convenience to him, his bandmates would often bring their instruments to his house for practice. Tyng, then, had access to many more instruments, which he then learned to play.[citation needed]
