The Banger Music Hour rocks your face off each week, with a cornucopia of indie rock and metal from around the globe. Broadcasting straight out of the gritty airwaves of “Detroit Rock City”, The Banger Music Hour is hosted by syndicated talk show host John Lebang and co-hosted by Shady (Bangerverse). Together they support the rock music artists of the world one song at a time.

  Each new volume of the BMH is jam packed with the latest tunage, interviews and featured segments, including “Crank It or Jank It”, "The Double D", and Requests. Past episodes have also included interviews with Sponge (Detroit), Limberlost (Seattle), Rexoria (Sweden), The Dark Clouds (Australia), Prowess (North Carolina), Dead In 5 (Detroit) and many others.


  Also, songs featured during the Banger Music Hour are eligible for nomination in The Banger Music Awards. This is our annual celebration of independent rock music, and an extravaganza featuring presenters from all over the world with amazing indie rock music. The awards show is heard exclusively, live on Pure Rock Radio. 2021 Banger Music Awards air January 16th, 2020
