D.H. Peligro (b. 1960, St. Louis, Missouri, real name Darren Henley) was the drummer for the classic punk band Dead Kennedys from February 1981 until their breakup in December 1986. He reunited with the DKs in 2001 during their reformation without former frontman and primary songwriter Jello Biafra.

He plays drums on the albums Plastic Surgery Disasters, Frankenchrist, and Bedtime for Democracy. His drumming can also be heard on the EP In God We Trust, Inc. and the singles/rarities collection, Give Me Convenience or Give Me Death. He has also drummed with Red Hot Chili Peppers, Nailbomb, Feederz and SSI.

The name Peligro means “Danger” in Spanish.

Peligro is one of the former members involved in a civil fraud complaint against Jello Biafra, accusing Biafra of withholding royalties and creative privilege to license Dead Kennedys songs.

A debut album, Peligro, was released in 1995 on Biafra’s own Alternative Tentacles record label, but was deleted from the catalog in 2001.

D.H. Peligro is the frontman for his band called Peligro. He has released three albums, Peligro, Welcome to America and Sum of Our Surroundings, which won Rock Album of the Year from the American Independent Music Awards. Peligro’s sound is known to be an eclectic combination of punk, reggae, funk but more metal than anything. He recently made a punk rock cover of Jimi Hendrix’s Purple Haze, nominated for a Grammy Award. As well as Peligro, he has fronted bands such as Reverend Jones and the Cool Aid Choir, Al Sharpton’s Hair and The Hellions.

    "I just like the shock value. I've always been about the value of shock value." - Anyone who thinks that old age may have dulled former Dead Kennedys frontman Jello Biafra's rage and fury are in for a rude awakening when they give a listen to the latest release by his band the Guantanamo School of Medicine, White People and the Damage Done. Biafra talks about the "savage" new album, and his favorite songwriters who inspired it. The founder of Alternative Tentacles also tells us the stories behind such Dead Kennedys classics as "Holiday in Cambodia" and "California Über Alles," and explains why he does not plan on reuniting with his former bandmates any time soon:
