With two platinum albums and five gold albums, the hard-core hip-hop duo known as Insane Clown Posse has a legion of loyal fans. But none, apparently, at the FBI headquarters in Washington, where anyone who listens to the posse's harsh music is regarded as a gangbanger who should be under constant watch. But there's no law against indulging bad taste, in music, art or food, and a good thing, too. We couldn't afford to build enough prisons to hold the guilty.
DETROIT (AP) — The Insane Clown Posse sued the U.S. Justice Department on Wednesday over a 2011 FBI report that describes the rap-metal duo's devoted fans, the Juggalos, as a dangerous gang, saying the designation has tarnished reputations and hurt business.
It's official: From presidential campaign politics to a world gone "Gangnam Style," 2012 was the most dubious year yet.
Matthew Lillard's filmography runs the gamut, from playing a killer in the original "Scream" and the goofy Shaggy in the "Scooby-Doo" movies to showing a more dramatic side of his talent opposite George Clooney in "The Descendants" and Clint Eastwood in "Trouble With the Curve."
The Roots saved some of their love for Whitney Houston.
Their horrorcore hip-hop — pervaded by profanity and violent imagery — has been called degenerate, depraved and disgusting. Their fans, the Juggalos, are derided as a dangerous, clown-makeup-wearing cult. What could anyone say about Insane Clown Posse that's any worse? How about calling them Christians.
"When we started rapping, we were broke as could be. And we were pissed off about everything," he says. "But for the last 20 years, there's so much love around us from Juggalos that I can't walk around being salty about everything, and think this world sucks, or this country sucks. Because we don't feel that way anymore."
That, he says, makes the frequent criticism of the band less important than ever.
