-->"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 [[EmoTeen 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 HipHop-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 Music/LedZeppelin and Music/MotleyCrue).

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 [[MagnumOpus their best album to date]], and it has done really well on ''Billboard'' charts (hitting #4 on the ''Billboard'' 200).

For more controversial tropes, see the [[YMMV/HollywoodUndead YMMV tab]].

'''Past members:'''
* Deuce

!Provides examples of the following tropes:

* AGodAmI: Johnny 3 Tears in Undead.
* AllMenArePerverts: A lot of their songs are about this, most notably, Charlie Scene's antics
* AutoTune: Used frequently on ''Swan Songs''. Slightly less on ''American Tragedy'', but it's still noticeable.
* BeardOfSorrow: Their song about spiraling into depression and alcoholism has the line, "I haven't shaved in a week".
* BoastfulRap: A ''lot''.
* CoolMask
* CoverVersion: [[MotleyCrue Shout At The Devil]], [[Music/LedZeppelin Immigrant Song]], and Operation Ivy's "Bad Town".
* {{Crunkcore}}: Mostly their earlier and unreleased material.
* DarkerAndEdgier: ''American Tragedy'', which significantly reduced the number of party songs and focused on more serious topics, and had a more rock-oriented production style with less obvious electronic influences.
* {{Dissimile}}: For those of you who are not aware of the slang term "down with the dick" (which is not on UrbanDictionary but apparently means [[AllWomenAreLustful a female who loves to sleep around]]), this band's use of the line may introduce [[{{Transsexual}} another image]] into the listener's head. It doesn't help that Hollywood Undead once collaborated with another MySpace celebrity, [[DragQueen Jeffree Star]].
* DoNotCallMePaul: Daniel Murillo is the only one who goes by their real first name.
* KidsRock: "[[SubduedSection Young]]"
* LovableSexManiac: The entirety of "Everywhere I Go" is about this:
--> ''[[TitleDrop Everywhere I go, bitches always know that Charlie Scene has got a weenie that he loves to show]], [[ThisIsForEmphasisBitch bitch]]''
* LyricalDissonance: Bullet
* MalevolentMaskedMen: Averted. As noted in multiple reviews, their masks and music are not at all menacing. One mask has a butterfly on it. Really.
* TheManIsStickingItToTheMan: Goes after ''the mainstream'', even though they've gained a lot of their fame through [[{{MySpace}} one corporation]] and are now signed to a major label.
** The video for their single "Been To Hell" is a vicious TakeThat at the so-called Hollywood Dream.
* MetalScream: Have utilized this many times.
* MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness: 7 or 8, you decide. But most likely an 8.
* {{MySpace}}: First gained steam there.
* NotChristianRock: Danny. The only way you'd be able to tell he's even religious is the cross on his album 2 mask.
* OddNameOut: Charlie Scene, Da Kurllz, Funny Man, J-Dog, Johnny 3 Tears, and... Danny.
* PrettyFlyForAWhiteGuy: Some of their material exhibits this.
* RapMetal
* RefrainFromAssuming: A kind of weird example. The song that has "This love, this hate is burning me away" as its chorus? That's Knife Called Lust. The song that uses the line for its ''bridge'' is This Love, This Hate.
* ShoutOut: To Bob Saget, Ashton Kutcher, TilaTequila and [[{{MySpace}} Tom]].
-->Paris Hilton said "That's hot" [[LovableSexManiac when she saw my cock]].
* SignatureSong: "Undead", which, ironically, is based on [[Music/OzzyOsbourne another signature song]].
* StealthParody: ALL of their Crunkcore stuff should be taken tongue in cheek.
* TheStoner: Funny Man. It's un clear if there's ever been an interview he hasn't shown up to absolutely blazed.
* TeenyWeenie: The ending of the video for "Everywhere I Go".
* ThemeNaming: Deuce and his sister (also his solo band's keyboard player) are called Aron and Arina Elrichman.
* TitleDrop: In American Tragedy the song Been to Hell features this line
--> ''I'm the reason you came here, I'm [[TitleDrop the American tragedy.]]
* VocalTagTeam: Every member contributes.
