What is Miracle Drug?
It’s Ryan and Nash’s old band (the other two guys were Jonathan and Rob).
Does he prefer being called RK or Ryan?
He used to introduce himself as RK before the Tonight Tonight madness, now he goes by just Ryan. I don’t know which one he likes better, I assume he likes both. As of why he’s no longer called RK, it was because Taylor Swift tweeted about HCR and called him “Ryan” instead of RK when they played with her Tonight Tonight at Staples back in August 2011. So he goes by Ryan now because it’s easier to find him on the internet this way.
Does he have any pets? If so which are their names?
He has one cat named Superman and two dogs. One is called Sgt. Pepper and the other is Demo.
What are HCR fans called?
RK said that he always calls us ‘Firestarters’ because ‘it suits the wildfire like spread of music’ (he tweeted this back in 2010). But now that their music is all over the world, since 2011 it seems that they call us ‘Hot Chelle Raeliens’.
