Patrick John “Pat” Badger (born July 22, 1967 in Boston, Massachusetts) is the bassist in the band Extreme. He is also a former member of Daemon, In The Pink, Super Trans Atlantic, and Tribe of Judah.

He sang backing vocals on both Dweezil Zappa's album Confessions and the Danger Danger album, Screw It!, along with his Extreme bandmates Gary Cherone and Nuno Bettencourt. He has also sung back-up on a live version of the Van Halen song, "When It's Love" on Sammy Hagar's live album, Live: Hallelujah, on which Cherone sang co-lead vocals with Hagar.[1]

In 2013 Pat initiated a PledgeMusic campaign[2] to help him release his first solo record, offering exclusives to pledgers and updates related to the project as well as past rare Extreme footage. The pledge reached its goal and the record entitled "Time Will Tell" was released in late 2014.[3]
