I was actually just about to talk about Hollywood Undead. I like "Tear It Up". I think it draws similarities to "Undead". I'm interested in checking out the covers on the album, wonder how it will be. Not too big a fan of "Dove and Grenade", but its still not bad. I consider their debut album very powerful and one of the best albums of last year.
I really dig Hollywood Undead. Their last album really broke them through to become one of the current top rock bands. However, some songs on their last record were more rap than Rap Rock, Nu-Metal, Rap Metal, whatever you wanna call it. Hopefully this new album will really solidify them as a legit rock band.
Rap/Metal, Rap/Rock, Nu-Metal, whatever you wanna call it, was never popular amongst so called "real rock and metal fans" but who gives a fuck what they think, I think HU are solid, and I hope their next album will continue the step up.
I'd mark for a Nu-Metal/Post Grunge/Hard Rock etc resurgance amongst radio and TV etc, burying the awful tripe of emo pop and "Indie" rock that's basically everywhere atm.
