FRIDAY FLICKS: THE ABSOLUTE FUNNIEST THING YOU WILL EVER SEE!

This week we keep rolling hard but we discover that inside we're full of tender feelings and childlike wonder. This can mean nothing else except that we're featuring Insane Clown Posse's utterly brilliant contribution to Christian rockdom. There's no comedy like unintentional comedy. . . .




Cut KISS in half, put them through a blender, attach some giant cajones to what comes out, and you have Insane Clown Posse. The two men who make up the posse, Shaggy 2 Dope and Violent Jay, are straight up thugs. Hailing from the mean streets of Detroit, drugged, angry, and producing homicidal, misogynistic rap songs, the middle aged musicians have, over the past twenty years, earned an ultra-loyal following and an ultra-vile reputation.

The key element of their shtick is that they only go in public with their grubby, goateed faces painted up to resemble demonic clowns. This practice has been picked up by their followers, known as Juggalos (a blending of "gigolo" and "juggling" [as in happy juggling clowns], I guess). Juggalos are doubtlessly the most adamant and brutal of any music act's devotees. ICP has been banned from numerous venues for the simple reason that event promoters fear having to pay for the broken windows and blood stains Juggalos are likely to leave in their wake.

In short, the Posse is as street as they could possibly be. They're almost too hardcore. There's no conceivable way Shaggy and Jay could sell out.

Except to Jesus.

In 2010 ICP came clean with their fans, admitting that they've been evangelical Christians all along. To drive the point home they recorded the below number, "Miracles," from the album Thy Unveiling. If you haven't taken this video in, my advice is to take a deep breath and make sure you're sitting down before you click.
