This article is about the guitar player, for the Pet Shop Boys song, see Euroboy (song).

Knut Schreiner (born 14 December 1974 in Oslo, Norway), better known by his stage name Euroboy, plays lead guitar in Turbonegro (aka Stierkampf, Turboneger, TRBNGR), noted internationally for the album Apocalypse Dudes. As Euroboy, Schreiner usually appears on stage in an all black attire, sporting a Schutz-Staffel Totenkopf officer's hat. His style of playing is strongly influenced by James Williamson of the Stooges from 1971 to 1974. Schreiner has confessed that Raw Power (1973) by the Stooges is one of his all-time favorite records. He is also influenced by Ace Frehley of KISS and Angus Young of AC/DC. Schreiner is also the lead guitarist and lead singer of his own band Euroboys, (formerly known as Kåre And The Cavemen). He also took part in the Black Diamond Brigade.

Knut Schreiner has produced bands such as Turbonegro, Amulet and The Lovethugs. In 2002, he finished building his own studio with Anders Moller of Euroboys. This is called Crystal Canyon and is located in Oslo.

In March 2008 he was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Disease. He has said that he is optimistic about his recovery and that he expects to be completely cured by the fall. In November, 2008, he stated in a blog entry that his cancer has been cured, and that there are no traces of it in his system. And said as of early 2009, will work on a new Turbonegro record.
