Hollywood Undead: Day Of The Dead Meaning
Song Released: 2014
Day Of The Dead Lyrics
Hold on, Holy Ghost
Go on, hold me close
Better run, here we come
It's the day of the dead
[Johnny 3 Tears:]
We come from a world of oblivion, bad dreams
I got all I need strapped right to my hamstring
I'm not really...

In a Nutshell it is about Religion being as Immoral and as Con-influenced as Underground Gangs.
Charlie Represents the Underground Gangs, Danny Represents the Church (through J3T and Charlie's eyes) As he uses A religious prayer (Hold on holy ghost, hold me close) Along with the Immoral side of "Better run here we come" To symbolize the power of religion. - J3T represents someone whom is of both sides of the situation. - Just Look at the Lyrics while keeping this in mind to prove my points further. It'll jump and stick to you.
- Also, "Day of the dead" can also mean "Day of religion" As Death is connected to religion in the biggest ways. - The Title is viewed Via Charlies Perspective, "The Dead" meaning "Religion"

It's about religion being immoral. As they were selling expensive jesus jewelry and there was also a religious sex hotline. Also the old woman presenter was having her tears makeupd on showing that the show is a ruse to get money.
This song, like most songs by Hollywood Undead, are most likely written with the concept of emotional instability in mind. I feel like this is what goes on inside the mind of somebody who has lost somebody close to them because of something stupid in society, causing them to hate mankind and this world.

It's about the resurrection & final judgement of all..those who have held on to the Holy Ghost & those who have run! It will be The Day of the Dead for all souls.
People are beginning to forget those that they have lost. And its fustrating that there being left behind and being called on like they used to be... The day of the dead or "El Dia de los Meurtos" is suppose to be a day where we celebrate(remeber) the people we have lost even if it was a long time ago.. Every one needs to be remembered. So thats what i get from the song.

It seems to my understanding this song is about experiencing ''the anger'' some of the band members themselves vented of towards the mixed mes sages that have been preached and received by them about the HOLY GHOST that they do want HIM to hold on to them, but feel they were let down in the so called living world that went away from them living within the Hollywood undead lifestyle world. Where now they're getting themselves in the mindset with the dead ancestor spirits that have been neglected and forgotten to be honored anymore with the so many years that have passed by. They're so upset 'cause they're not even called upon to look over and protect their family descendants that have been broken apart as families in this day of age. This makes them angry ghosts by the ''lack of''respect and honor that the living have accumulated throughout the years, not only for them on the ''DAY OF THE DEAD'', but for the living ones also that don't have much empathy, honor and respect for themselves as much anymore that the dead are mad and angry with.

To me its dealing with how religion has become money hungry and that most tv churches and things like that are one big show. The lyrics"hold on Holy ghost, go on hold me close " refers to the few that know the truth and hold on to it and fight to change how this is. I could also be really wrong but that's what I get from the lyrics and music video.

I believe that, like the music video, they're referencing the abuse of capitol and ability by "religious" groups. "hold on holy ghost" could be some form of hope things will get better, but this is only my personal opinion, and i could be wrong.

Day of the dead is a mexican holiday, also it references christianity, Holy ghost. it also could be about killing, beacuse he says, "Ive got all need strapped right to my hamstring." Referencing a gun
