Justin Danger Hawkins (born Justin David Hawkins on March 17, 1975) was the former lead guitarist and singer of The Darkness. He plans to begin writing music for films.

Hawkins fully developed his love of rock music while playing with the now defunct heavy metal band The Commander. They are affectionately credited on The Darkness` d├ębut album Permission To Land — (your wish is my Commander).

He is known for wearing catsuits, and his flamboyance and exaggeration. His playfulness has seen him fired by his brother Dan Hawkins from several different bands. He considered himself a lead guitarist until Dan saw him performing an interpretative mime to Queen`s "Bohemian Rhapsody" in The Swan public house, in Beccles, on 31 December 1999 whereupon they realised his potential as a frontman.

In 2005 Justin set up a solo project, called British Whale. His debut single, This Town Ain`t Big Enough For Both of Us, a cover of the 1974 hit by Sparks, was released on August 15th 2005 reached Number 6 on the UK Singles Chart. In 2006 Hawkins released a second single, available only on download, an unofficial World Cup anthem called England.

In October 2006, Hawkins left The Darkness band.
