Bucketheadland is the debut studio album by solo artist Buckethead. It was released on John Zornʼs Japanese record label, Avant, in 1992. It features several samples of the 1960s Japanese television series, Giant Robot, amongst guitar riffs and several fast, technical solos. The concept of the album is a tour around the construction of Bucketheadʼs fictional amusement park, “Bucketheadland”. Because of this, the album is divided into sections that relate to distinct areas of the park.

A sequel was released in 2003, simply titled Bucketheadland 2.
