ICP feels qualified to do TV show; defends Juggalo fan base

Insane Clown Posse feels qualified to do pop culture Fuse TV show; defends Juggalo fan base

NEW YORK, N.Y. - They are the self-proclaimed "Most Hated Band in the World," and now they're bringing their own theatre of the absurd to the Fuse Network with the aptly titled "Insane Clown Posse Theater."

For 24 years, Joseph Bruce and Joseph Utsler have taken on the persona of wicked clowns, transforming themselves into their alter egos, Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope.

On their weekly forum, the Detroit-area rappers critique all things pop culture, claiming to bring an outsider's perspective "as people not involved with pop culture." A good part of the show has the guys critiquing music videos, much like Beavis and Butthead from a generation ago.

"Maybe this is conceited, but I don't care," Bruce said. "This is what we believe right here. Nobody is qualified to do something like this as ICP because ICP is the only group in the position in the history of rock 'n' roll that ever sold as many millions of records as we had and had as much success as we've had and it's still considered a joke. It's still considered the most hated band in the world."

With a sardonic smile, he added: "We love to be hated."

Perhaps that's just when it comes to their music because both want the show to go beyond their infamous Juggalo fan base. Throughout their long career, what the duo had lacked in terms of a mainstream audience was overshadowed by their dedicated, clown-faced fan base known as Juggalos.

A portion of this vast subculture has come under attack in recent years, and at one point the FBI had classified them as a "gang threat." The band filed a lawsuit that was eventually settled, saying that a majority of Juggalos are law-abiding folks who are simply misunderstood.

"Calling them a gang is people who fear what they don't understand," Bruce said.

Utsler added: "It's a huge body of people. In any group that large you're going to have people that aren't the most fantastic people in the world. You're going to have awesome people. So how can you say just because, like, there is a group of kids that happen to be Juggalos that are in a gang that you can say like, little Jimmy Beaver from Iowa in the cornfields is a gang member because he's a Juggalo? That's ridiculous. It's stupid."

The band started to gather this fan base in the mid-1990s with the song "The Juggla," and started calling people around them Juggalos. The name stuck and the fan base grew.

As for "Insane Clown Posse Theater," the guys have poked fun at videos by Miley Cyrus, D'Angelo, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, and Christina Aguilera. Besides watching music videos, they have a different guest star each week, make fun of red carpet photos and poke fun at different trends. One thing that they won't do is talk about news.

"I don't care about a royal baby," Utsler said. "I don't care about Detroit going bankrupt. I'm just living. And I don't know all the details. I don't know politics, who caused it or why it's caused? I'm just dumb like that because I don't care."

That's news to me? As far as we all know they haven't even had their day in court...

It's either poor research or amazing research. I'd imagine it's a mistake but then again maybe this has something to do with the aborted ICP seminar announcement. Just speculating.

It always bothers me that nobody seems to know where Juggalo comes from.

 

Even Wikipedia gets it wrong. Even Violent J seems to get it wrong sometimes.

 

 

The first time the word Juggalo was used in a song was on Beverly Kills 50187

"But I can Juggalo like you never thought you'd ever know... and I'm packin that fffffffffunk"

 

and then on Chop! Chop!, Esham starts the song by repeating the word "Juggalossss"

 

 

 

Funfact: Eminem sampled a loop from "Beverly Kills" for the beat to his song "Just Don't Give A Fuck".

I can juggalo like you never... seems to be a different context. Seems more like typical J mispronunciation style wordplay there. Just a substitute for the word juggle, but yeah that's probably the root of it all.

Thats the funny thing about settlements.  They often take place out of court or in lieu of proceeding to trial.  Well thats not that funny, but dumb acting smart is.  No relevance to your comment here just an observation on people who act like they know more about the case then they do myself included.

I totally agree that that's how it was said; same thing with pronouncing it "psychopatchic" instead of "psychopathic"
