Hollywood Undead Albums
If you’re into rap-rock music, then you probably heard of the Hollywood Undead Albums. Hollywood Undead officially entered the music scene with the release of their first album “Swan Songs” in 2008. The band is composed of masked musicians nicknamed Charlie Scene, J-Dog, Johnny3 Tears, Funny Man, Danny, and Da Kurlzz. They were catapulted to media attention when their lead song “Undead” was featured in the movie “GI Joe: The Rise of Cobra.”
- “Swan Songs” is the band’s first album released in 2008, placing them into the mainstream. The album was described as a rather straightforward rap album with the usual headbangers, chugging riffs, and synth beats. Fans noted songs such as “Young,” “This Love This Hate,” “Sell Your Soul,” and “City” as the more noteworthy pieces in the album.
- “Desperate Measures” is the second Hollywood Undead album, which consists of six live recordings and six new studio recordings. Some critics panned the album and called more of a compilation since it featured a number of remixed songs or covers with only a few new songs added. Still, fans helped the album remain in the Billboard Top 200 with around 500,000 sales.
- "American Tragedy" is the rightful successor to the successful “Swan Songs” album, as the band delves into deeper and darker territories. The album consists of songs that deride their detractors and also include songs that feature industrial steam-punk remiscent of Wu-Tang Clan. The songs “I Don’t Wanna Die,” “Bullet,” “Pour Me,” and “Tendencies” take the listeners to the unsettling and unforgettable realms of every city’s underworld.
- "Swan Songs Rarities" EP is available via digital download only. It consists of three tracks that were not included in the original “Swan Songs” album. These include “The Kids,” “Bitches,” and “Circles,” which, like their other songs, are an explosive concoction of alternative rock, metal, and hip hop.
- "Swan Songs B-Sides" EP is also an addition to the original “Swan Songs” album. It was released in June 2009 and consisted of four tracks. These included “Pain,” “The Natives,” “Knife Called Lust,” and “The Loss.” The whole EP played a total time of 12:55.
