Hollywood Undead have a whole arsenal of influences. That's precisely why their sound is so enigmatic and edgy.
On Desperate Measures, Hollywood Undead further carve out a style that's all their own. Industrial gnashing gives way to massive rock n' roll choruses and some of the most raucous raps to ever be committed to tape. "Explosive" doesn't even begin to describe just how fiery Hollywood Undead's latest musical time bomb is…
In order to get closer to their music, Hollywood Undead's J-Dog and Funny Man shared their playlists with ARTISTdirect.com editor and Dolor author Rick Florino in this exclusive interview.
Check out their playlists below and pick up Desperate Measures now!
J- Dog's Playlist:
1. The Sleeping
J-Dog: I'm listening to this band called The Sleeping that we toured with. They sound like a mix between At the Drive-in and Murder City Devils. They're really good. Funny Man's been into Bring Me The Horizon. We played some shows with them in England, so he's been listening to them nonstop. I was into them, now he started listening to them. The Sleeping's one of the only new bands I've been listening to recently though.
J-Dog: I put my shit on shuffle and let it go. I've been listening to a lot of AC/DC lately for some reason. You know how you go through phases with bands? I always do that. It's usually one band at a time with me. Right now it's AC/DC because I watched their Behind the Music again. It's such a good one. All the shit they've been through is crazy.
J-Dog: I'm listening to a band called Perish. They're a metal band but they've got melodic choruses. I've always liked metal that has melodic choruses that get ingrained in your brain. They're from Orange County—the dirty OC [Laughs].
Funny Man's Playlist:
1. Queens of the Stone Age — Songs for The Deaf
Funny Man: That's my all-time favorite album by them. The first song is awesome!
2. The Talking Heads — Best Of
Funny Man: I'm always listening to them! I like his style and the storytelling. It's great shit!
Funny Man: I'm always listening to the Dub-C album. I picked that up in Vegas when we were last there, and I don't think I've stopped listening to it. I heard that album when I was a kid, and I still love it!
