Welcome to Bucketheadland is a song by American guitarist Buckethead, featured on his 1994 album, Giant Robot.

As with the vast majority of his other songs, "Welcome to Bucketheadland" features no vocals, only Buckethead and other musicians. The song features a riff which sounds very similar to that of Ozzy Osbourne's Crazy Train, which is apparently simply because Ozzy Osbourne - and his late guitarist Randy Rhoads - have influenced Buckethead in the past. The song features spoken words over the music, coming from an unknown speaker, which mutters "come inside" and "Welcome to Bucketheadland" numerous times and also is heard saying "Buckethead was raised in a chicken coop by chickens?", referencing Buckethead's official biography.

Park Theme on Buckethead's 1992 debut album Bucketheadland is very similar to Welcome to Bucketheadland, featuring a different voiceover and a more 'electronic' feel, including a dance music-type beat. The solo is also different on this song; more complex and longer. Park Theme Extension, on the Dance Remixes second disc of Bucketheadland is also very similar to the two songs, but is longer and more electronica orientated, and it also features obvious bass parts.
