Win a Hollywood Undead Prize Pack - WINNERS ANNOUNCED
Dread Central, in conjunction with Total Assault, has lined up a special contest for fans of the band Hollywood Undead to commemorate the release of their two-disc CD/DVD Desperate Measures.
If you're not familiar with Hollywood Undead (official site here), don't mistake them for just another "rap rock" band. They craft incisive, sharp, and sarcastic raps that slash the jugular of mainstream pop culture. They're something new, dangerous, funny, and alive. Deuce busts out the melodies. Johnny 3 Tears, J-Dog, and Charlie Scene lead the lyrical charge while Funny Man drops rhymes, and Da Kurlzz hypes the fray. Donning individual masks, Hollywood Undead possess a dark aesthetic that's connected to their hometown's depravity.
Here's what they're offering Dread Central readers:
1st PLACE Prize: 1 Autographed Skate Deck, 1 copy of the CD/DVD Desperate Measures, 1 Hollywood Undead T-shirt
WINNER: Nicolette S. Alcala
2nd PLACE Price: 1 copy of the CD/DVD Desperate Measures
WINNER: Barbara Henderson
To enter, send us an E-MAIL HERE that includes your full name and mailing address, and we'll do the rest. Winners will be announced November 6th.
