Derrick Edwin Bostrom (born June 23, 1960) is an American musician. He was the original drummer of the band Meat Puppets.

Bostrom remained a member until 1996 when the band effectively went on hiatus. Although Curt Kirkwood later revived the Meat Puppets, Bostrom has not performed with the band since. However, he has still remained somewhat active as a musician by releasing material under the name Today's Sounds as well as collaborating with Neil Hamburger and Cliff Sarde (on his Smoke N' Function project). Bostrom has also maintained the official Meat Puppets website since 1995 — and has continued to do so even when the band is inactive. Furthermore, he oversaw the Rykodisc reissue of the Meat Puppets' SST era albums.

In 2006, when the Kirkwood brothers began playing together again, fans speculated if Bostrom would also be involved in an upcoming reunion, however he dismissed the notion in a post on the Meat Puppets' website. Ted Marcus became the band's drummer in 2007,[2] succeeded by Shandon Sahm in 2010.
