Let me start off by saying, I am not a fan of Insane Clown Posse. Don't get me wrong, I love me some Napalm Death, Cannibal Corpse, and on occasion some Severe Torture. But ICP just hasn't made it past my crap filter.(still, not as bad as Brokenctde) My encounters with their fans(Juggalos) has consistently been less than congenial. They are obnoxious, belligerent, short pants wearing sociopaths who would gladly dangle a baby above rabid Pit Bulls and have the video up on MySpace within minutes. But, whether you love or hate them, there is one sure thing. They are not boring. They revel in pissing off everybody equally and they are damn good at it. My most memorable Juggalo moment was at Rock And Shock 2009 at the DCU Center in Worcester, MA. The bottom floor of the convention center was the horror festival, the top floor was a High School Cheerleading competition. ICP was playing up the street at The Palladium that night. Juggalos like to get to the venue early, to make sure they get in, and to vandalize the surrounding area. But that day the Palladium was having none of it, so they dispersed the make up clad pack of society's dingleberries, which sent them in the direction of the DCU Center. The Rock And Shock crowd could handle them. The Juggalos blended right in with attendees dressed as Freddy Kruger and Pinhead. But a few found their way into Cheerleading central. Imagine a group of kittens and their overbearing cheer parents being besieged by a group of things that look and act like the little psycho voodoo doll in "Trilogy Of Terror". As the Juggalos gnashed there discolored teeth at the cream of school spirit I thought, "This is natural". The Chinese call it Yin Yang. Each group, while completely opposite, actually were interconnected, giving reason for each others existence. Then I thought, "Nah, these guys are just assholes". But again, they were first-rate.
LOL that is classic.....the los are good people Hsu. sure, there's idiots & assholes, but for the most part they are a fun-loving culture, & some are actually pretty intellgent. I guess it all comes down to whether you "get" the music & can enjoy it, as with any music. There's not too many that listen to Napalm Death
