Keith Flint in the "Firestarter" video.

Keith Flint (born 27 March 1969) is a member of the British hard dance/rave band The Prodigy. Flint was born and raised in Braintree, Essex. In the late 1980s he met the DJ Liam Howlett in a rave club and expressed his appreciation of Howlett's music. Soon after, in 1990, he joined Howlett's new project, The Prodigy. Originally he was only a dancer, but in 1996 he was the vocalist on the hit single Firestarter. The accompanying video was extremley controversial, and showcased Flint's new, punky look. This trend continued with the next Prodigy single, Breathe, on which Flint performed the lead vocals. The 1997 album The Fat of the Land featured Flint's vocal contributions to several tracks. In 2002 the single Baby's Got a Temper was released. It was heavily influenced by Flint's punky style, which lead to Howlett later discrediting the song. On the next Prodigy album, Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned, Flint did not perform any vocals, although he did sing on one of the tracks on the Hotride single.

Flint has also experimented with several side projects, including the bands Flint and Clever Brains Frying.

Flint is easily recognized by his outlandish, punky clothing, make-up and hair style (which changes colour regurlarly). His vocal style is also somewhat punkish, resembling other punk bands like The Sex Pistols etc.
