Cordell Crockett (born January 21, 1965)[citation needed] is an American rock bass guitarist who played for the band Ugly Kid Joe from 1991 to their first breakup in 1997, and again since their reunion in 2010.[1] He also played bass on some of the songs on Atomship's The Crash of '47.


Crockett uses a wide range of different bass techniques including slapping, popping, finger picking, and plectrums. He also uses a bass guitar wah-wah pedal quite frequently, particularly in the Ugly Kid Joe songs "Same Side", "Sandwich", and "Funky Fresh Country Club".[citation needed]


His main influence is Black Sabbath bassist Geezer Butler.[citation needed] Ugly Kid Joe has covered many of their songs, including "Sweet Leaf" and "N.I.B." Other influences include Steve Harris.[citation needed]
