Term originally used to describe greasers.
"Hood," is what a greasr would originally be called (the term "greaser," wasn't developed until the early 70's)
"Lum," was short for "slums(ghetto)," which was were most "greasers," would usually live.

The fan base of the Dark-Pop Alternative Rock Band, The Neighbourhood, will refer to themselves as hoodlums. The Band currently holds four people, Jesse Rutherford, Zach Abels, Jeremy Freedman, and Mikey Margott. They had a former member, Bryan Sammis, that left the Band to pursue a solo career in music. The Band became more well known through their popular song, "Sweater Weather", which hit mainstream radios.
