"Everywhere I go, bitches always know, that Charlie Scene has got a weenie that he loves to show."

Considered by many to be fairly polarizing, Hollywood Undead got their start writing rap songs about Emo Teens and posting them on MySpace. After gaining a following, the band's founders decided to officially form a band with anyone who happened to be in the room at the time, no, seriously. The band was the first act signed to MySpace Records, then switched over to A&M/Octone Records, where they released their first album, Swan Songs, in 2008, which had a mostly Hip Hop-oriented sound with a few rock songs. This was followed by a live album mostly consisting of songs from their debut and a few covers (including Led Zeppelin and Mötley Crüe).

After a long hiatus (partly caused by one of the founding members leaving the band), they released their second studio LP, American Tragedy, which featured a more rock-oriented sound. Critics and fans alike assert that the album is their best album to date, and it has done really well on Billboard charts (hitting #4 on the Billboard 200).
