(I particularly enjoy the interplay of the "clowns" (is that how they refer to one another?) and the non-clown people.)
Also for your enjoyment, the A.V. Club recently did an interview with one of them, Violent J. One of my favorite quotes...
Sometimes in our heads, when we’re making a song—like a typical wicked song with some scary themes to it—it plays itself a lot better in our head when it’s all left to the listener to decide how things look and what the story’s like. But when we actually try to do it on film, and show Shaggy and myself cutting people’s heads off or cutting their necks, something weird happens, and it’s not cool. In our opinion, it’s not cool to actually see us doing the murders, as cool as it is to imagine it when you’re hearing the song. That’s our opinion.
I don't hate Insane Clown Posse. In fact, I'm envious. They found a niche and filled it. It's fascinating. I would love to hear from a fan and ask them a bunch of questions as to the appeal of the band. At least I think I would.
