"D'yer Mak'er" is a song by English rock band Led Zeppelin, from their 1973 album Houses of the Holy.
This song was meant to imitate reggae and its "dub" derivative emerging from Jamaica in the early 1970s. Its genesis is traced to Led Zeppelin's rehearsals at Stargroves in 1972, when drummer John Bonham started with a beat similar to 1950s doo-wop, and then twisted it into a slight off beat tempo, upon which a reggae influence emerged. The distinctive drum sound was created by placing three microphones a good distance away from Bonham's drums.
"D'yer Mak'er" is one of the few Led Zeppelin songs where all four members share the composer credit. The sleeve on the album also gives tribute to "Rosie and the Originals", a reference to the doo-wop influence which was evident in the song's style.
No Mercy released a cover of "D'yer Mak'er" on their European debut album "My Promise" in 1996.
