An American rap rock band, Hollywood Undead were formed in 2005 after founders Jorel Decker (J-Dog) and Aron Erlichman (Deuce) picked the name from a song called "The Kids". J-Dog and Deuce then recruited "whoever was in the room and can play instruments"; Jeff Philips (Shady), George Ragan (Johnny 3 Tears), Jordon Terrell (Charlie Scene), Dylan Alvarez (Funny Man), and Matthew St. Claire (Da Kurlzz).
Like their formation, the first album was an instant work, taking only a year to get done. However, the young group had a difficulty landing a company that would not constrict their creativity. Their first label, MySpace Records tried to censor the album so they left and signed with A&M/Octone Records. "Swan Songs" was finally released in September 2008.
