Steve Turner (born March 28, 1965) is an American guitarist, most famous for his work with Seattle band Mudhoney.

Turner was born in 1965 in Houston, Texas. His first band was called The Ducky Boys. The line up included future Pearl Jam member Stone Gossard. The Ducky Boys split around 1983. Turner later found Mark Arm in Mr. Epp and the Calculations, which Arm described as "The worst band in the world". Mr. Epp played their final show with Turner in 1984. Turner was also present in Green River which again featured Arm and Gossard, and also acquired the services of Jeff Ament (later Pearl Jam) on bass guitar. Turner left the band in 1984, citing differences with the "careerist" Ament. Arm and Turner brought Mudhoney into existence on New Year's Day, 1988. The Melvins bassist Matt Lukin was brought in, as was Dan Peters on drums. With Mudhoney, Turner recorded all their albums from Superfuzz Bigmuff in 1988 to Vanishing Point in 2013. Turner also appears in sideprojects such as The Thrown Ups, Monkeywrench, The Fall Outs and has his own side project of solo recordings in a folk-vein.
