No, Juggalos really are the worst kind of people. Yet, I must admit a certain fascination.

If you can't make fun of people who idolize grown white guys who paint their faces like clowns and rap poorly, who's left to make fun of?

I mean, really, aren't Juggalos a few steps down from Bronies, PUAs, and Furries?

It's still a step up from NordicFest.

I've been a little out of the loop. Is ICP still claiming that they have been Jesus freaks all along, and this whole show was just to rope in some new converts to The Man?

/Or did someone point out that their fans aren't smart enough and the rest of the world didn't buy it all?

I read the Jon Ronson interview with them in Lost at Sea. It made them seem actually human, and  a little confused.

I think they are as surprised as anyone that it has gone this far and are just trying to ride the gravy train for as long as they can.

If Gene Simmons can do it, so can they.

I unfortunately work in an area where there are many Juggalos. To a person every single one of them is either an obnoxious violent asshole, addicted to meth or recently incarcerated.
They deserve every bit of mockery and scorn sent their way

I still can't quite figure out what the draw is.  The fans all appear to fit the profile of rejects desperate to belong to something, but that still doesn't explain why go THERE.  The "music", if you can call it that, is utter rubbish, the fans don't seem like anyone I'd want to hang around.  Only thing I can figure is people go for drug connections.

I love that video, you can tell that after only 30 seconds or so they're all tuckered out.  Hell, I'll get into a Electric 6 mosh pit for a good 45 min, get my ass tossed around, throw some boes, and still be ready for more.  I've also seen some mosh pits I wouldn't set foot in to ie Pantera, Ministry and Tool.  I'm old now, so I'll just enjoy a show from a distance, ear plugs and all.

I'm sure it has been said before by smarter folks than myself, but ICP is really no different than any other religious group that feeds off persecution (real or perceived). Their use of violent imagery is no different than the songs about various wars and battles (albeit they tend to focus on the micro-level details and gory parts rather than the macro level aspects of fighting). Yes, 99% of them are working class and probably use drugs but I'm sure the social capital built in their community is stronger and more authentic than much richer folk going to mainstream music festivals.

Not that there aren't plenty of perfectly valid criticisms about the fanbase, but your argument there wasn't one of them. It basically boiled down to "I can't imagine why anybody would like what I don't like".

Also, for some dumbass reason or another, this little gathering has a tendency to draw some decent acts. B-list at least. Soulfly, Brotha Lych Hung and Tech N9ne aren't radio artists (well, Soulfly isn't anymore anyway), but they're not lightweight nobodies like most of the others, either.

Plus they've got Charlie Murphy doing a comedy set. Jim Norton too.

/ ICP works much better as a low-budget comedy duo than a rap group and I think they know it
 
2013-07-15 02:29:53 PM
 Either they're cutting back on budget or I'm growing blissfully too old to know who plays at a Juggalo Festival.  In the past they had bands who I never wanted to see, but I had at least heard of.     This seems like all of their sycophant bands jumping on their record label gravy train.

A female friend of mine says that if anything, Juggaloes are *very* body-positive. You just get down and let whatever you have swing in the breeze.

Just wait until the hipsters figure out it would be the epitome of ironic cool to be "in" with the Juggalo scene.

As a struggling musical band/rapper from Michigan, it must be really devastating to put on facepaint, get really bad tat art, put some phonetic spelling in your band name and rap about smoking ditch weed and have ICP tell you "Sorry, we just can't put you on our festival lineup.  We just don't think you match the high musical standards set by Blaze Ya Dead Homie, Boondox, Anybody Killa and Lil Wyte.  We just don't have a spot for you."

I've never had a face to face conversation with someone who identifies as a Juggalo, but there is a theme in a lot of interviews I've seen or read, which is that a lot of Juggalos/Juggalettes see other Juggalos/Juggalettes as sort of extended family. And  it's not really hard to see why.

And I have to be honest, I find the cultural aspect fascinating.
