The Union Underground was a nu metal/industrial rock band based out of San Antonio, Texas, USA. Original band members included Bryan Scott, Patrick Kennison, John Moyer and Josh Memolo. They released one major label album, An Education in Rebellion, in July 2000 which featured the hit single "Turn Me on 'Mr. Deadman'."
The Union Underground was created by Bryan Scott (vocals) and Patrick Kennison (guitar). The name was borrowed from their recording studio which they called Studio Underground. They were later joined by John Moyer (bass guitar) and Josh Memolo (drums). The Union Underground sold more than 5,000 copies of their self-recorded/produced 1997 selftitled album and were noticed by a Columbia A&R exec, John Weakland, who later signed them to Columbia Records. Soon, The Union Underground was performing at the 2001 Ozzfest and other venues worldwide.
