Del Shannon (født 30. desember 1934 i Coopersville i Michigan, død 8. februar 1990) var en amerikansk Rock 'n' roll´er og country musiker og låtskriver. Hans døpenavn var Charles Weedon Westover. Tidlig på 60-tallet hadde han hits med Runaway, Hats Off To Larry og Keep Searching, men etter The Beatles og den britiske bølgen, ble Shannon satt i skyggen. I 1989 overtok han etter Roy Orbison i Traveling Wilburys, men Shannon begikk selvmord kort tid etter.

Del Shannon ble innlemmet i Rock and Roll Hall of Fame i 1999.
