Farhad Mehrad (Persian: فرهاد مهراد‎‎), (January 20, 1944 - August 31, 2002) widely known in Iran as Farhad was an award winning Iranian rock singer, songwriter, guitarist, pianist and icon. He rose to prominence among Iranian rock and folk musicians before the Iranian Revolution, but after the revolution he was banned from singing for several years. His first concert after the Iranian Revolution was held in 1993. To this day he is considered one of the most influential and respected Iranian artists of all time.

Farhad is most well known for his song "Jomeh", a revolutionary song which was written in opposition to the 1908 Bombardment of the Majlis, which is regarded in Iranian history as "Jomeh Sia", or Friday of Darkness. It's also a ballad in tribute to the Siakhal Incident of 1971.
