Hollywood Undead

hollywood_undead_002Hollywood Undead is a rap metal band from Los Angeles, California. The band originated in 2005 from a song titled “The Kids” that Deuce and J-Dog posted on the band’s MySpace profile to positive reviews, leading them to form the group Hollywood Undead with their friends, which they filled with pictures of themselves in hockey masks.

In their first nine weeks on MySpace they had almost a million plays and by 2006 they were said to be leading MySpace’s top unsigned artists list with over 8 million plays. By November 2008, the band had over 440,000 friends on MySpace. They made their live debut in August 2008 at the Virgin Mobile Festival after winning 285,000 votes, over half the total, in a Book the Band contest against four other bands. They signed a contract with A&M/Octone Records and their first album, Swan Songs was released on September 2, 2008 and reached #22 on the Billboard 200 in its first week of release, selling 21,000 copies. They recently played many shows including opening day on the main stage of Download Festival 2009. They released Swan Songs B-Sides EP on June 23, 2009 through iTunes.
