JadaL (English: Controversy) is a Jordanian Arabic Rock band from Amman, Jordan, formed in 2003 by Composer/Music Producer/Guitarist Mahmoud Radaideh, which has held various members over the years.
When the band released their first single ‘El Tobah’ (Repentance), a cover of Abdel Halim Hafez’s legendary love song, their musical style, coined as Arabic Rock, was described as ‘groundbreaking’ due to its unique blend of rock and Arabic, or more specifically Jordanian, lyrics.

The album was well-received, staying true to their principles and ‘polished’ rock sound. Produced by Mahmoud Radaideh & Hanna Gargour, the album also featured Palestinian Hip-hop artist DAM on the track ‘Ya Bani Adam’ (You Human Being) .
In 2011 a new single was released, 'Bye Bye 3azizi' ( باي باي عزيزي) (Bye Bye My Dear), written and composed by Mahmoud Radaideh and main vocals performed by Ahmad Zoubi.
