Johnny 3 Tears is one of the five current members of Hollywood Undead.


Personal Background

George Arthur Ragan was born in Los Angeles, California on June 24, 1981. He first met future band mate J-Dog when he was very young, but they didn't like each other when they first met. However, years later, they ended up in the same band.

He used to date a girl named Carly, along with a few others before meeting a woman named Asia. They have a daughter together, named Ava Ragan and are married since January 19, 2018. Asia recently announced on her Instagram that they are going to have another baby in November.

He lived in California almost all his life, most recently in Huntington Beach, before ultimately moving to Nashville, Tennessee with his family.

Band Position

He is typically a vocalist doing raps in more serious, sad and/or angry songs. Despite this, he has rapped in less mature songs like No. 5 and One More Bottle. In I'll Be There and Sing, he does clean vocals for the first time (for the band).

His favorite song off of American Tragedy is S.C.A.V.A.. He posted on Twitter in January of 2015 that his favorite Hollywood Undead song is Outside. He also claims I'll Be There to be one of his favorites from Day of the Dead along with Does Everybody in the World Have to Die.

During an interview with Impericon in 2017, he listed I Don't Wanna Die and Young as some of his favorite songs.

His favorite songs from V are Your Life, Renegade and Pray (Put 'Em in the Dirt).


Hollywood Undead

Johnny's first mask in 2006 was a white goalie mask with huge, symmetrical black splatters dropping from its eyes. The splatters were flowing towards to the sides of the mask. The mouth was covered with the regular silver duct tape.

Later, he changed it to a golden mask. He kept the black splatter but it wasn't symmetrical anymore and flowed straight towards the mouth. The mouth was covered by two black warning tapes that said "Time Again" in red.

Swan Songs

Johnny took a new approach to his mask and made it a sky blue shade with a white "3" on the left side of his face. There was a big black butterfly on his right eye, and four orange butterflies near it. He also had especially big holes cut for his eyes.

American Tragedy

Johnny's mask is now colored with a lighter shade of blue. The mask no longer has the mouth cut and the size of eye cuts have also reduced. The butterflies are slightly more detailed, with the biggest butterfly also having a skull on its left wing. The "3" on the left side is much larger and takes up most of the left side of the mask. The "3" also lights up.

Notes from the Underground

Johnny elected to make the mask look more human-like, as well as somewhat of an artifact. There is a chiseled pattern, as well as minor artificial dust. It is colored with a darker shade of blue. The "3" on the mask lights up in white and it remains large. The small monarch butterflies are gone and the previously black butterfly now takes away the majority of mask's right side. It also lights up in a bright yellow.

Day of the Dead

Johnny's mask looks cleaner and more streamlined to his previous mask. The butterflies were moved to the left side of the mask, they are light blue on the whitish background. A continuous pattern of the "Dove and Grenade" and the butterflies can also be seen there. The cracks on the mask have been reduced to simple scratches. The "3" on the left side is silver. The upper left-hand side and the lower right-hand side of the mask also seem to have their colors washed out giving them an almost white color. He also has a teardrop under his right eye in a slightly darker color. It no longer lights up like it did in the previous two renditions.


Like most members of the band, Johnny has also replaced his mask with a chrome one. His new mask is still very much detailed, much more so than the other members'. His mask is covered in three different kinds of carvings of butterflies. He now has two threes on his mask on both sides of his face.

Johnny has a silver mask with blue threes, a golden mask with black threes, and a red mask with white threes.
