Personnel

Reception

The album did fairly well, selling over 10,000 copies in it's first week. Rick Florino of Artistdirect gave Notes from the Underground 5 out of 5 stars, noting that it is the best album of 2013 and best album Hollywood Undead has done to date, describing that the album "practically bubbles over with intoxicating, invigorating, and infectious energy." He uses Dead Bite as an example, and described it as being between "an industrial grind and some of the funniest Charlie Scene lines yet". Commenting on the track From the Ground, he describes it as the band's "heaviest cut ever" and "a testament to J-Dog's potent and powerful take on metal.", while pointing out Rain and Outside as the darker tracks on the record.

On the day the album became available for pre-ordering, the pre-orders alone peaked at #2 on the iTunes rock chart. Pre-orders continued to sell extremely well, continuing to chart at high spots on the chart. An entire month after the pre-orders became available for pre-ordering, it was charting at #8 on the iTunes rock chart. After release, it peaked at #1 on the iTunes' Top Albums chart. The album sold around 53,000 copies in its first week, peaking at #2 on the Billboard 200. As of August 27, 2013 the album has sold little over 212,000 copies. The album also reached #1 on the Billboard Canadian charts.

Trivia

  • Both the name and the cover of the album were insipred by two of Johnny 3 Tears' favorite books. The cover was inspired by the cover of the book "The Catcher in the Rye" by J. D. Salinger, while the title was insipred by Fyodor Dostoyevsky's "Notes from Underground".
  • Contrary to popular belief, this was the first album to include a titular track, with that track being From the Ground.
