Congrats to Sacramento’s Brotha Lynch Hung for securing a headlining spot at this year’s Gathering of the Juggalos. He is touring behind his new album Mannibalector, the third in his concept trilogy Coathanga Strangla. This release focuses on the struggles of a cannibal serial killer trying to balance his murderous urges with his family life. The video for the first single “Meat Cleaver” has multiple viewer warnings.
Insane Clown Posse’s 14th annual celebration at Cave-In-Rock, Illinois, is not only the world’s largest horrorcore music festival but also features hip-hop, comedy, hardcore, old nu-metal, obesity, drugs, “celebrity” poo assault, wrestling, strippers, poker, sweat, tattoos, fishing, the Miss Juggalette Pageant (TURN VOLUME DOWN), fan Q&A, a Big Butt Party, junk food, pajama parties, drugs, oil wrestling, carnival rides, Faygo, flabby tits, one shower trailer, booze, hookers, extreme wrestling, drugs, swimming in Hepatitis Lake, helicopter rides, flashlight wrestling, stuffed nedenholes, and drugs.
If you are unfamiliar with Juggalos, Insane Clown Posse or Psycopathic Records, you are missing out on one of America’s fascinating youth subcultures. ICP is widely considered to be terrible, their fans to be idiots and the Juggalo family to be a street gang, but this does not stop fierce loyalty and millions of dollars in annual revenue. ICP proudly wears the moniker of The Most Hated Band in the World. The fairest look at Juggalos I have seen is the short documentary film American Juggalo.
If all this tickles your fancy, the fun begins on August 7th, buy tickets here. Besides the Psychopathic Records family, other headliners will include Vanilla Ice, Tech N9ne, Onyx, & Sevendust. ICP is also hyping the video for their new single “When I’m Clownin” and tonight’s premiere of Insane Clown Posse Theater, where Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope get high and steal Beavis and Butthead’s schtick by reviewing pop videos.
