Timothy Lockwood Armstrong (born November 25, 1965) is an American musician, songwriter, and record producer, best known for his work with punk rock bands Rancid, Operation Ivy, Downfall, and the Transplants. He is also the owner and operator of Hellcat Records.

Tim Armstrong was born November 25, 1965 and was raised primarily by his mother. At the age of five, Armstrong met Matt Freeman while playing Little League Baseball in Albany, California. Freeman and Armstrong soon formed a band through their shared love of bands such as The Clash and the Ramones. Armstrong married musician Brody Dalle in 1997 and the couple divorced in 2003. Much of the lyrics on the album Indestructible deal with Armstrong's feelings on his divorce.

Basic Radio was founded in 1986 and included Matt Freeman and Tim Armstrong and other members of the band following Operation Ivy. The band never released any albums or EPs and soon after their 'break-up' Operation Ivy was found.
