Stephen Lee "Steve" Klein (born September 29, 1979)[1][2] is a musician. Klein was a founding member of Florida rock group New Found Glory, for whom he was the rhythm guitarist and primary lyricist.

Having formed New Found Glory with frontman Jordan Pundik in 1997, Klein performed on seven of the band's nine studio albums. Klein also contributed guitar to the bands now defunct alter-ego side project, The International Superheroes of Hardcore, where he was known under the pseudonym of "Mr. Mosh". Klein made his production debut in 2011, on Man Overboard's self titled second album.

When writing lyrics for each of the band's albums, Klein has explained that he simply tries to "capture a different time period in our lives".

The band made an announcement via Facebook on December 12, 2013 that Klein was no longer in the band, due to "personal differences." Following this announcement, New Found Glory revealed that they would begin searching for a replacement. However, they ultimately decided to continue as a quartet.[3]

On March 12, 2014 idobi Radio reported that on the same day New Found Glory removed Klein from the band, Klein was arraigned on multiple felony charges, including lewd acts with a minor, and possession of child pornography.[4]
