Hollywood Undead Earn 11 new platinum + gold song certifications

Congratulations to Hollywood Undeadwhich has just been awarded new platinum and gold certifications for a total of 11 songs by Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). The certifications were dated Sept. 19.

The band’s songs “City”, “Young”, “Black Dahlia” and “No. 5” from their 2008 album Swan songs; “Comin’ in Hot”, “Hear Me Now”, “Bullet” from the 2011s American Tragedy; “We Are” from the 2012s Notes from the underground and “Day of the Dead” from their 2015 album of the same name earned the gold awards, while 2008’s “Undead” and “Everywhere I Go” received the platinum title.

Before this week, they had one gold and one platinum certification from 2017 for the songs “American Tragedy” (2011) and “Swan Song” (2008), respectively.

A gold certification indicates that 500,000 units have been moved, and platinum is for songs and albums that have pushed 1 million units. Downloads and streaming are taken into account in these calculations – 10 downloads count as one unit, and 1,500 streams also equals one unit.

The rap-rockers released a series of singles throughout 2022, starting with the aggressive ones “Chaos,” and then revealed their eighth studio album Hotel California on Aug. 12.

“We were in a world of shit,” vocalist Johnny 3 tears shared by the album. “The opportunities for failure were far more prevalent than the opportunities for success. We hung out with gangbangers and drug dealers. The chances of overcoming were very slim. We made something special together because of the heartbreak and heartache that came from all our experiences.”

They toured with Papa Roach, Falling backwards and Bad wolves over the summer, but they don’t have any more upcoming dates planned right now. Until you have the chance to see them on the road again, you can buy merchandise from their new limited Halloween collection. See pictures of the pieces below – only 150 pieces are available.
