Ali on his 37th birthday

Ali Tabatabaee (age 38) is the lead singer and occasional guitarist of the California punk band Zebrahead.

Before ZebraheadEdit

Tabatabaee formed Zebrahead with those he met in high school (La Habra, California).


Tabatabaee is the lead singer of the band as well as the organizer. His style normally includes a screaming rap type of vocals, but also a softer hip-hop sound in certain songs. In the majority of his songs, he sings the verses while Justin Mauriello (1996-2005) or Matty Lewis (2005-present) sings the pre-chorus and chorus.
