Also performs as: H.R. (Paul D. Hudson of Bad Brains)
H.R. (Hunting Rod or Human Rights) (born February 11, 1956) is the stage name of Paul D. Hudson, the lead singer of the hardcore punk band Bad Brains. His vocal delivery is very diverse, ranging from a rapid-fire nasal whine, to feral growling and screeches, to smooth near-crooning or staccato reggae rhymes. He has departed the band periodically to pursue solo efforts that are more mellow reggae than Bad Brains' usual punk/metal offerings. He is the older brother of Earl Hudson, Bad Brains' drummer.
