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 by Buckethead. The concept of the album is a tour around the construction of Bucketheadʼs fictional amusement park, “Bucketheadland”, because of this, the album has been split into distinct sections of the areas of the park.

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