Kimberly Dianne "Kim" Shattuck (born July 17, 1963) is the lead singer, guitarist, and songwriter of the band The Muffs. From 1985 to 1990, she was a member of The Pandoras. In 2001, she was a singer, guitarist and songwriter for The Beards, a superpop side project composed of Shattuck, Lisa Marr, and Sherri Solinger.[1]

Shattuck sang on a NOFX song, "Lori Meyers" on the album Punk in Drublic, as well as on a Bowling for Soup song, "I'll Always Remember You (That Way)", which was included with the single "My Wena". She also collaborated with vocals for the Kepi Ghoulie song "This Friend of Mine" on the album American Gothic and The Dollyrots for their track "Some Girls" off the album A Little Messed Up. Shattuck is the namesake of Dr. Shattuck, a character on Mr. Show (HBO, 1995–1999).

In June 2013, it was announced that she would be joining the Pixies for their European tour that year, following the departure of original member Kim Deal; however, in late November of that same year, it was announced that she was no longer playing with the Pixies.[2]

Shattuck participated in a reunion of The Pandoras on July 4, 2015, at the Burger Boogaloo in Oakland, California. Although she played bass in The Pandoras, she was the lead singer and guitarist for the reunion.
