My Record Collection by Hollywood Undead's The Funny Man

In My Record Collection, we dig down to the bottom of musicians' souls to find out what the most treasured parts of their record collection are. This week, it's the turn of controversial rockers Hollywood Undead and their frontman Funny Man. Here goes...

 

The first record I ever bought with my own money was…

"It was 2 Live Crew's As Clean As They Wanna Be. I grew up hearing my cousins bumping stuff like 2 Live Crew and thought it was cool and they were always on top of who was hot or not. So then one day I was walking through a thrift store and came across that record, and as a kid, I thought I struck gold and knew I was about to be the coolest kid on the block."

 

The record that made me want to be in a band was…

"Red Hot Chilli Pepper's Californication! I live my life as a 'War Child'."

 

The record I've played more than any other is…

"This is Three 6 Mafia's When The Smoke Clears. I bought this Chevy pick up truck from a friend and he left the Alpine CD player on deck, along with 2 12” sub-woofers. And some other aftermarket speakers, not that factory s**t. Full on stereo system, the works! So anyways I brought that album with me on the day I purchased that truck and never took it out of that CD player."

 

The record that always make me feel good is…

"Talking Heads' Stop Making Sense. I get this sensation of excitement every time I listen to this live performance of the Talking Heads. everything about it is on point and by far one the best shows I have ever seen live. “David Byrne is GOD” as I yell this at the peek of my mushroom trip laying in the grass with my girlfriend at Vondelpark in Amsterdam. The Talking Heads will always and forever make me feel good."

 

The record I turn to when I'm feeling down is…

"Anything by Frank Black. He speaks to me and I’ll leave it at that."

 

The record I think is the most underrated of all time is…

"Britney Spears' Blackout. I’m sorry, I don’t have an answer for this question. So I turned to my girlfriend and asked her what she thinks the most underrated album is and without thinking about it, she yells “BRITNEY SPEARS, BLACKOUT!” She thinks this was the album that got looked over and forgotten about. She’s the Princess of Pop!"

 

The record with my favourite cover art is…

"Any Pen & Pixel work from the late 90’s, CMP, Born 2Twice, all that..."

 

The record with my favourite title is…

"This has to be Snoop Dogg's Doggystyle. Who doesn’t like Doggystyle? Snoop is a true innovator a new age funkadelic funk lord brought into this hip-hop game and all he seems to do is amaze the world as an artist, so this album title goes deeper than you will ever know."

 

The record I cant understand why everybody loves is…

"I remember always asking this kid in my algebra class back in high school why he liked listening to The Smiths, he never had an answer me. and I’m sure if I saw him today, he still wouldn’t have an answer for me. Just like everyone else who listens to The Smiths."

 

The last record I bought was…

"Hollywood Undead's V. My band and I just put out a new album and we wrote a little something for everyone, listen and enjoy, check it out!"

 

The record I'm most looking forward to hearing in 2018 is…

"Nightmares On Wax's Shape The Future. Really looking forward to this dudes new album coming out. He always puts out fun stuff to listen to, his music allows me to escape from reality and to just enjoy what I am listening to."

 

The greatest record of all time is…

"It is Talking Heads' Speaking In Tongues. This record was introduced to me by my pops, growing up he always had this album playing in the garage amongst other great albums. my dad has a pretty sweet collection of vinyl and growing up listening to his records, Talking Heads - Speaking In Tongues stood out to me the most..."

 

Hollywood Undead's new album V is out now and available here in hmv's online store.
