Butch Vig
Butch Vig, Green Day's producer on 21st Century Breakdown, has been included in a list from NME counting down the 20 best producers of all time.

"Key to Nirvana's 'Nevermind' was the muscular sound of producer Butch Vig, who made sure the record's guitar packed an all-mighty Herculean punch. The Garbage man has since produced the Smashing Pumpkins, Green Day and Sonic Youth, and continued to work closely with Dave Grohl, helping the Foo Fighters grow into world beaters. A true great? You betcha."

The list, which is a result of a reader's poll, also includes Rick Rubin, George Martin, Dr. Dre, The Neptunes, and many more.

Vig and Green Day won a GRAMMY for Best Rock Album with 21st Century Breakdown in 2010. Find out more about Vig in our biographies section.
