Hollywood Undead Biography
Review The Artist (13)
Hollywood Undead can’t be pigeonholed into one genre, and that’s the last thing they’d want. A group of guys from the streets of Hollywood, California that bring everything to the table – hip-hop, rock and metal –masterfully creating a style and sound that’s uniquely their own.
Deuce, Johnny 3 Tears, J-Dog, Charlie Scene, Funny Man and Da Kurlzz are set to drop a musical bomb with their forthcoming debut album on A&M/Octone. The album, with songs produced by Danny Lohner (Nine Inch Nails), Don Gilmore (Linkin Park) and Deuce, includes album opener "Undead," which sets the tone, firing off a big melody and buoyant beats while track "No. 5" dissects the frivolities of Hollywood with witty, catchy choruses and "Los Angeles" examines the town's evil edge. Just as important to the band as their city, is the mystery behind it all. Donning individual masks, Hollywood Undead possess a dark aesthetic that's connected to their hometown's depravity.
With over 40 MILLION plays and 400,000+ friends on MySpace it is safe to say that Hollywood Undead have an internet cult following. However, Hollywood Undead have got the gusto to be earth shattering far beyond cyberspace. They're already knocking at your door, and they're about to break it down.
Hollywood Undead are about to drop a musical bomb. On their debut album (A&M/ Octone), they've concocted an explosive cocktail of hip hop, rock and metal, forging an alternative style that's primed to blow the scene up. They craft incisive, sharp and sarcastic raps that slash the jugular of mainstream pop culture. They aren't your standard rap or rock crew. They're something new, dangerous, funny and alive. Deuce busts out the melodies. Johnny 3 Tears, J-Dog and Charlie Scene lead the lyrical charge, while Funny Man drops rhymes, and Da Kurlzz hypes the fray. Donning individual masks, Hollywood Undead possess a dark aesthetic that's connected to their hometown's depravity. Tracks like "No. 5" dissect the frivolities of Hollywood with witty, catchy choruses. Album opener "Undead," sets the tone, firing off a big melody and buoyant beats. Meanwhile, "Los Angeles" examines the town's evil edge. However, Hollywood Undead has got the gusto to be earth shattering far beyond cyberspace. They're already knocking at your door, and they're about to break it down.
Hollywood Undead’s sound cuts with a distinct hip hop swagger and a brooding, hard rock aggression. The band recorded seventeen songs with production by Danny Lohner (Nine Inch Nails), Don Gilmore (Linkin Park) and Deuce. J-Dog describes the sound best. "It's different genres mixed together with no holds barred. The rap songs are straight-up club songs. The rock songs are in your face and industrial. It's a collaboration of six people with different thoughts, coming together and not holding back." Charlie Scene elaborates further, "It's the truth about what average, suburban teens are thinking. No one else is rapping about how those kids party and what they go through in life, but we are."
Everything was born from a collaboration by Deuce and J-Dog in 2005. They posted a couple of their songs on the internet, and within a day, they had a slew of friends and plays. They inked a deal with A&M/Octone in 2008, and they're ready to unleash their manifesto. Johnny 3 Tears delves deeper into the band's message. "Our music and lyrics are just a communication of our lives. That's the best way to define it. It's all extremely and explicitly honest about stuff we go through--love, hate and pain. People see that honesty, and they respond to it. I want it to last forever for them. It's not fleeting."
The masks contribute to the band's mystique. Charlie explains, "In order to keep everything a mystery, we didn't want people to know what we look like." That mystery is just as important to the band's identity as the city is. J-Dog continues, "I've seen too many people who just couldn't cut it out here. This city literally chews people up and spits them out. In Hollywood, there are aspiring actors, artists, crack heads, gang bangers, taggers, and homeless people. They all add to the culture. Growing up around so many different people made us who we are. Hollywood was always known for its rawness, and we have that." The world will soon see that Hollywood Undead is as raw as it gets.

* Okay, dude... for one, learn how to spell. I mean, seriously, you sit there and act like you know every little detail about Hollywood Undead when really, dude, you don't. You don't even know how to spell Charlie Scene's name, for Christ's sake! Learn your facts, dude.
I felt this was necessary. Learn to spell, Chrissy Girl, before you grammar Nazi others. Derpnuts. In other news, excellent band, just learned of them recently, going to find more of their music to listen to. Loved "Bullet" and "Dead Bite," so far!~
KURLZZ | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/24/11
I love Da Kurlzz, he's my favourite member like. It's not that I don't like anyone else, cos J-Dog and Funnyman's lines are beast and Danny's a great singer the same as Charlie Scene. J3T is awesome and I love everyone in H-U, especially
They're considered alternative | Reviewer: Lauren | 11/2/11
They're alternative mainly, with some rapping. And it's ok if someone spells stuff wrong. He didn't say he knew everything about them. Cut him some slack. I don't know much by them, but i love Bullet. It's an interesting happy-suicide song.

a lotof you guys have it all wrpng. | Reviewer: r-y-a-n_b-o-o-z-e-r | 7/28/10
a lot of you guys have got it all wrong. there is no song "we are young" its called young. another thing is the band themselves never read this s++t, only fans. but anyway yeah ther fkng awesome. scene and funny are of corse funny.but i think J-3-T or charely scene would be my favorites, funny brings a different element to the songzz. which is somtimes good, like bottle and a gun. favorite song with funny. but H.U. is al i listen to on my ipod. if undead came tyo pheonix this year before i move OMFG i wud die. haha my dad an i wud fight for those damn tickets, so they shud. ima member of DE UNDEAD ARMY!! PEACE.

I Love Hollywood Undead! | Reviewer: Jessi Phillips | 4/29/09
I Love Hollywood Undead! In fact last night April 28, 2009 I was at their tore concert with Sonny and Framing Hanley! It was intence. We made it to the front and got a lots of bruses and elbos and kicks, all worth to have the band throw thenself on us, and sing right to us. Every song they decicated it to someone. On their song pain Johnny Three Tears said "We dedicate this song to all those fight overseas and all those in the military because if it weren't for them we woodn't be able to do what we are doing now!" I screamed mi lungs out... for I have a boy over seas!!! The song was Pain! Perfect! Mi friends and I were screaming our lungs out singing with them! Every song! When Johnny Three Tears jumped into the stage he landed right on top of me, and held mi hand until he got his balence... Haha I Loved it! And when J-Dog jumped into the audience on his way back he kissed/lick mi friends face! Amazing, Awesome, Wicked, Hardcore, and the Damn Best Truthfull Band in the world! Every song goes right to the Heart! They understand and speak the truth! They fell what we feel making them the Best Band In The WORLD! I Love Yall!!!
