"Hater" was an American rock band from the 1990s, a side project mostly under the direction of Soundgarden bassist Ben Shepherd. Additional members included Soundgarden drummer Matt Cameron, John McBain (ex-Monster Magnet and, later, partner of Cameron and Shepherd in Wellwater Conspiracy), and Brian Wood, brother of Mother Love Bone vocalist Andrew Wood.
The band released two albums of their brand of garage/psychedelic rock: their self-titled debut in 1993; and their follow-up, ''The 2nd'', which was recorded in 1995 but released in 2005.
