I'm not much for God or the Devil, but I do listen to a Christian band. I've mentioned this to some people, but it bears being told here. If you take that perceptual half step to the left, tilt you head and squint just a bit you will see that the wickedest most hated band in the world worships the same deity as most of the people who protest them. Songs like "Crossing thy bridge" and "Thy Unveiling" flat out say it, not to mention all the songs about heaven and hell, their motto of punishing the evil of the world and holding up a mirror to the world to show them how fucked up things are like they do in "Terrible". I.C.P. talks about stuff that most other bands would never dream of, and they do it in a way that helps you actually think. Imagine that, a band that can get you to think about the world and whats wrong with it, and then give some idea of how to make it a little better. A band that actually takes care of it's fans, gives them a little bit of random flavor or just shows up at a canceled concert to give free shit away as a way to say "Sorry we had to cancel the show". I get all kinds of comments when I say that I.C.P. is my favorite band, from "Why do you like THEM!?!?!?" to "God they suck" to "You?!?! A juggalo?!?!? No way!!". So yeah, I'm a fucking juggalo, and I'm gonna stay down with the clowns. And if you still have no idea what could be so good about them, do yourself a favor and maybe, ya know, LISTEN to a few of their songs. Buy an album or 7. Get the Jokers cards, and really pay attention to the things that they talk abot. Yeah, there is some straight up silly shit on the cards, and some totally wicked violent shit too. But there is also a bunch of stuff that might have you nodin' your head and saying "Yeah, they got a point there" or "Damn, I would so love to do that to a pedophile". You all have read that old Dr. Seauss story about Green eggs and Ham, right? Well, if you are going to hate something, at least try to hear what they have to say first. And I'm not talking just playing it and dealing with it... I mean really LISTENING and actually THINKING about what is being said. Just try, it's all I ask.
Anyway, my pimping of the clowns is done for now, so back to your lives. Have fun, and carry a sharp axe ya'll.
