A mixture of rock and rap (while deftly avoiding the “nu metal” ethos of almost a decade ago), Hollywood Undead are deveoloping a rapidly growing fanbase with the release of their debut album, Swan Songs.  The group’s first single, “Undead”, was featured in the Super Bowl commercial for the upcoming G.I. Joe film. 


Bringing hip-hop’s love for their hometown to the table along with metal angst and hair-metal’s penchant for good times, Hollywood Undead’s sound is as unique as their look.  Keeping their identities secret beneath masks (à la Slipknot), Hollywood Undead are arguably one of the most interesting and exciting acts to hit the scene in years.
