Shane Bunting (born October 21, 1975 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada), better known by his stage name Mad Child, is a Canadian Rapper. He is half of the Vancouver-based hip-hop group Swollen Members. In 2009, he released his solo EP entitled The Mad Child EP. Mad Child can be recognized by his high, nasal, atypical voice. In late 2009 around the time of the release of the newest Swollen Members album Armed to The Teeth, news broke about Bunting's drug addiction. His opiate addiction was directly related to the 3 year "break" taken by the group.
