Derrick William Plourde (October 17, 1971 – March 30, 2005) was a drummer who was born in Goleta, California. Active between 1989 and his unexpected death in 2005, he was a former member of Lagwagon, Bad Astronaut, Jaws, The Ataris, Mad Caddies, Rich Kids on LSD, and others. Suspected as bipolar and battling drug addiction, Derrick committed suicide by gunshot on March 30, 2005.[1]

His former band, Lagwagon, produced a tribute album titled Resolve in his honor. He is also mentioned in the NOFX song "Doornails", on their Wolves in Wolves' Clothing album.

He also drummed for Mad Caddies in Rock The Plank. The Mad Caddies song Don't Go is possibly a tribute to him.[2]
