Terrell said about the single ”Lions” from the album:
”That song was written by a guy in the band, Johnny 3 Tears. I think he must be like a big Lion King fan or he thinks of himself as Mufasa. He loves lions.”

”My sunglasses, I gotta bring my sunglasses, yeah because I wear them on stage and if I don’t have them on I’d probably look stupid, gotta have my shades on me.”
”People in the group have an idea or collectively have ideas.”
”It’s becoming more technical now, it’s becoming more digital so I think rock music is going to have to become more digital.”
During a 2017 interview, Jordon said that his favorite movies are:
- Boogie Nights;
- The Shawshank Redemption;
- Forrest Gump.
His brother plays the main character in the ”California Dreaming” and ”Been to Hell” music videos.
Terrell has tattoos on his knuckles that mention his dad and mom.
Jordon is a big fan of American actor Charlie Sheen. Actually, that’s what inspired his stage name. Interestingly, both share the same birthday, but, the actor was born 20 years before Terrell.
In December 2009, the band won Best Crunk/Rock Rap Artist at the Rock on Request Awards.
Terrell doesn’t like being called Jordon by his fans.
In April 2009, Hollywood Undead toured with Skrillex (American electronic musician) as “Sonny and the Blood Monkeys.”
Scene speaks Spanish fluently.
One time, Skrillex went on tour, but Deuce (a member of Hollywood Undead until early 2010) didn’t show up, so Terrell sang all his parts.
Jordon appeared at the Family Values festival, which also featured American metal band Korn.
During an interview, Terrell said about his mask:
”I used to wear Del Taco bags, a fast-food restaurant, because I couldn’t afford a Jason mask, like these guys did, so I just popped a bag on after I had a couple of delicious tacos.”
”But, it was so annoying wearing that thing, so I switched to a bandanna and that made it alot easier.”
Scene later added:
”I designed the front, it’s got like, a couple of my tatt’s on there, some of my ink. Uh, it’s got L-A, it’s got an AK47, you know, show people that I’m crazy.”
His bandana looks really close to his Desperate Measures bandana.
Charlie is classified as the “gangster” of Hollywood Undead.
When asked about his favorite horror films, the musician responded:
”I watch movies on Netflix all the time but I forget the names. But I saw a movie called The Pact that was pretty good.”
”I saw The Innkeepers and that was really good.”
Jordon knew future bandmate Funny Man from a young age.
