Chris Connelly is a Scottish musician who became famous for his industrial music work of the late 1980s and early 1990s, particularly his involvement with the Revolting Cocks, Ministry, The damage Manual and Murder Inc. He has since established himself as a talented alternative singer/songwriter. His vocal style is often compared to that of Scott Walker and David Bowie.

In 2008, Connelly published a memoir of his early years in the music industry, Concrete, Bulletproof, Invisible, and Fried: My Life As A Revolting Cock (ISBN 0946719950). It describes his professional debut in Finitribe; meeting Al Jourgensen in London; his involvement with the Cocks, Ministry, PTP, Acid Horse, Killing Joke, and Pigface; and the development of his solo career.

In 2014, Connelly started a new project called Cocksure with Jason Novak of Acumen Nation and DJ? Acucrack. He also joined another project with Paul Barker (Ministry, Lead Into Gold) called Bells Into Machines.
