Young ~ Hollywood Undead

Hollywood Undead is an American rap rock band from California, fusing rap and metal with elements of rock and metal, formed in 2005. The band members perform in individual masks in order to maintain an air of mystery. This originated from the members’ MySpace profile which they filled with pictures of themselves in hockey masks.

The band originated in 2005 from a song titled “The Kids” that Deuce and J-Dog posted on the band’s MySpace profile to positive reviews, leading them to form the group Hollywood Undead with their friends Johnny 3 Tears, Charlie Scene, Funny Man, Da Kurlzz and Shady Jeff. Shady Jeff later left, leaving the band with only six members. In their first nine weeks on MySpace they had almost a million plays and by 2006 they were said to be leading MySpace’s top unsigned artists list with over 8 million plays. By November 2008, the band had over 440,000 friends on MySpace. They made their live debut in August 2008 at the Virgin Mobile Festival after winning 285,000 votes, over half the total, in a Book the Band contest against four other bands. Their popular song “Undead” is featured on the Madden NFL 09 soundtrack and was released as an official single on August 19, 2008, making it the second single from Swan Songs. Their song “Young” is featured as one of the 20 bonus downloadable tracks in the music video game Rock Band 2. “Undead” is also featured in a trailer for the new G.I. Joe movie G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra (2009).

We are young
But we have heart
Born in this world as it all falls apart
We are strong
But we don`t belong
Born in this world as it all falls apart

I see the children in the rain
Like the parade before the pain
I see the love I see the hate
I see this world that we can make
I see the life I see the sky
Give it all to see you fly
Yes we wave this flag of hatred
But you`re the ones who made it
Watch the beauty of all our lives
Passing right before my eyes
I hear the hate in all your words
All the words to make us hurt.
We get so sick we`re so sick
We never wanted all this
Medication for the kids with no reason to live.

So we march to the drums of the damned as we come
Watch it burn in the sun
We are numb

We are young
But we have heart
Born in this world as it all falls apart
We are strong
But we don`t belong
Born in this world as it all falls apart

As we walk among these shadows
In the streets these fields of battle
Take it up we wear the mantle

Raise your hands with burning candles
Hear us whisper in the dark
In the rain you see the spark
Feel the beating of our hearts
Fleeting hope as we depart
All together walk alone
Against all we’ve ever known
All we’ve ever really wanted
Was a place to call our home
But you take all we are
The innocence of our hearts
Made to kneel before the altar as you tear us apart

So we march to the drums of the damned as we come
Watch it burn in the sun
We are numb

We are young but we have heart
Born in this world as it all falls apart
We are strong
But we don`t belong
Born in this world as it all falls apart

We will fight (we will fight)
Or we will fall (we will fall)
Till the angels save us all
We will fight (we will fight)
Or we will fall (we will fall)
Till the angels save us all
We will fight (we will fight)
Or we will fall (we will fall)
Till the angels save us all
We will fight (we will fight)
Or we will fall (we will fall)
Till the angels save us all

We are young but we have heart
Born in this world as it all falls apart
We are strong
But we don`t belong
Born in this world as it all falls apart

We are young but we have heart
Born in this world as it all falls apart
We are strong
But we don`t belong
Born in this world as it all falls apart

About DJ Allyn

DJ Allyn is a burned out radio guy who went on to become a burned out sound engineer for a few Seattle area grunge bands in the 1980s and 1990s. Left the madness of worldwide tours with bands, cleaned up my act and went into the relative sanity of sound engineering for television series. Currently working as the Director of Sound for a television series being filmed in North Vancouver, British Columbia. I am always on the lookout for interesting videos, old music, and fun.
