Budd is the first release by the Chicago noise rock band Rapeman. The first three songs on the EP were recorded live. The title is a reference to Budd Dwyer,[3] a politician who committed suicide during a televised press conference. The lyrics of the title track contain references to phrases used during the incident.

It has been re-released as bonus tracks at the end of Two Nuns and a Pack Mule, the band's only LP.

Studio versions of the first three tracks were originally planned to be used, but the band later decided in favour of live versions. The demo tracks are currently available in trading circles.
