John Bonham’s Grandson Jager Henry Drops Pop-Punk Song ‘Hate Me’

Hunter Henrik is the deceased’s grandson, great John Bonham, and he continues his family’s musical legacy by creating his own songs. Today (September 15) he’s added to his catalog with a new pop-punk track called “Hate Me.”

Unlike his father Jason Bonham and his grandfather before him, Henry’s musical path shows him behind the microphone rather than behind the drum kit. He did not follow in the footsteps of Led Zeppelin sonically, either – the song’s angsty nature is closer Machine Gun Kelly than the bluesy rock giants of the 70s.

“My voice is my instrument,” the young rocker stated in a press release for the song. “My genre is also a bit different, but it’s all rock’n’roll.”

“Hate Me” is the product of a studio session that started with a drum beat and a bass line. After receiving a “dramatic phone call,” according to the video’s description, Henry had all the inspiration he needed to write the lyrics.

Although Henry’s last name is actually Bonham and he still uses it on his Instagramhe chose to drop it when it comes to his music.

“I was always talked about because of my last name so I thought why not change it up a bit and basically took my last name and replaced it with my middle name and it had a nice ring to it,” he explained.

The rocker previously teamed up with Cereal‘s Ray Luzier for a song called “Love yourself,” which was published in February this year. He has a performance scheduled for tomorrow night at the Viper Room in Los Angeles — get tickets here.
