School spirit will be in full effect at Florida Atlantic University as the campus hosts a bonfire to kick off the school year. And nothing says school spirit like the university president + the football team + a terrifying/clownish rap/rock band from L.A.
Hollywood Undead — who used to wear horror movie-style masks — has been stirring things up since 2008, and it is currently touring in support of its album Day of the Dead, featuring the single "Gravity."
According to FAU, Thursday night's bonfire and concert are open to the public:
