The Insane clown posse are a mainstream band – Juggalos are not underground


One of the biggest lies making the rounds at lotb forums http://www.planet-lotb.com/forum/ is that the insane clown posse – icp are a underground band and that juggalos are underground .

Some of the posts proving juggalos and insane clown posse is mainstream while their sheep fans still think they are underground . Icp has gone to a lil wayne concert and will be appearing at a concert with him – lil wayne one of the number one names in mainstream rap just adds to icps non underground image , but theres more. Fans looking to escape and find a band that is picked on and unknown better start looking elsewhere.

ICP plays on MTV = Mainstream

ICp plays on VH1 = Mainstream

ICP merch sells at Hot Topic = Mainstream

ICP attends red carpet events = Mainstream

ICP plays on radio and television music channels = Mainstream

ICP in the news every week = Mainstream

Icp have had mainstream acts such as method man in their so called underground concert = mainstream

ICP and juggalos are parodied on snl every 2 months = mainstream .

Icp has wrestled on wcw and wwe in front of millions of people and had their music played = mainstream.
In the mid 90’s Icp wrestled mid tier in wwe and wcw and were on your tv set weekly
their music was on multiple wrestling cds
they had lets go all the way ,homies and now miracles play non stop on mtv and vh1
they get sent up by Saturday night live 3 times a year and you say they are underground

“It’s not that they used sprite as backers to help jet them into mainstream… along with MTV’s help too. And they wen’t on WWF… can’t get more mainstream than that. If you understand the workings of the music industry, and the role of promotors, you can see that ICP has sold out. And all the jujubies or what ever they call themselves – it’s cool to flash the merch and the symbols, and the bumper stickers…
At some point you have to realizes that it’s become a fashion. They sold out just like the clash. Not in it for the movement, in it for cash.”

I bet even your grandma knows who icp is but probably couldn’t tell you who kanye west is.

Its now time for juggalos to admit they are not a family and the music they like is mainstream as they cannot keep the underground label of other horrorcore artists like esham .

  1. there are so many people that want access to anything that involves ICP. its kind of hard to stay none mainstream when you are a good band, no matter how much you really want to. They are underground in the fact that they have started their lable from the ground up and they are not working under someone getting told what to write song about of to sell more records because they are their own bosses.

    DEF JAM AND CASH MONEY RECORDS ARE UNDERGROUND BY YOUR DEFINITION ???
    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHA

  2. MAINSTREAM means radio play and ICP has only had a couple songs on the radio…so if you want to get technical study your shit bitches

    ONLY A COUPLE ???
    NEARLY EVERY SONG WITH A FILM CLIP HAS BEEN PLAYED YOU FUCKING IDIOT

  3. except that they want to be loved by everyone. and want everyone to be like them.; ICP could care less if you liked them b.c they are who they are. get over it and stop being a hater. Let people live their lives in peace and stop being such an irrogant human. Your way of life may be better for you and you know what do it if you want. just try to stop ruining other people’s because you have to disagree with them on something as small as Music. and entertainment. You are a pathitic if the things that other people listen to for entertain bothers you so much. get your own life and stop wanting ruing our.

  4. also if you look into the history of Def Jam the founder was Rick Rubin and he was in a band called “hose” but if you continue to go through the history you find that he went and recorder under other lables after he had created his own. ICP did record records not under Physocpathic Records but that was before the idea was even creaeted.

  5. no one gives a fuck. everyone has their own preferences. stay off icp’s dick. people hating on them has made them famous. them getting bashed on SNL isn’t exactly in their control. i dont understand why people continue to cry about icp. theyve been around since early 90’s i would fucking hope that people would know about them by now. and fuk kanye sweater wearing hoe west. and as if theyre gunna pass up going on wwe just to stay underground. be jealous bitches

  6. “DEF JAM AND CASH MONEY RECORDS ARE UNDERGROUND BY YOUR DEFINITION ???
    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHA”

    When they were on def jam it was after the big melinko controversy, they were in the mainstream scene at that time. They left. Now they may not be as underground as your little brother rapping on a duel caset deck in your moms basement but they are Independent and independent is the true definition of underground.
    I don’t even know what cash money records are so I’m sure ICP was never signed to them. Show me proof and I’ll retract my statement.

    “ONLY A COUPLE ???
    NEARLY EVERY SONG WITH A FILM CLIP HAS BEEN PLAYED YOU FUCKING IDIOT”

    Ok, maybe I’m just an ignorant juggalo but this doesn’t even make any sense. What the Fuck do you even mean by this? Every song that they sample a movie in?

    EVERY SONG THEY MADE A FILMCLIP FOR HAS BEEN PLAYED ON MTV AND VH1
    YOU DONT SEE THAT SHIT OFFERED TO REAL UNDERGROUND ARTISTS

  7. Oh and juggalofever, every CD that ICP has released has been on 1 of 3 labels, Psychopathic, Joe and Joey, and Rude Times. Rude Times was for everything Bass-Ment cuts and prior. Dog Beats and on has been Psychopathic. Now, They have been signed to Jive, Hollywood, Island, Def Jam, and D3 but Psychopathic was still making the music.

  8. WHAT THE FUCK IS A FILM CLIP!? A music video? When the fuck did Juggalo Island get MTV play? When the fuck did Real underground get air play? when the fuck did For the people get on VH1? when the fuck did anything other than Lets go all the Way, Miracles, halls of illusions, and Tilt a Whirl get any time on TV?

    Oh yeah, and “Real” Underground artists don’t have a budget to make a video worth watching. Ever watch an Esham vid? THEY SUCK! Even when he had a budget on Psychopathic he made a SHIT DVD for A-1 Yola with a shit camcorder. Every vid he’s made has SUCKED.

    MORE RACIST ESHAM HATE BY JUGGALOS
    ESHAM MAD JUGGALOS
    HE CAN DESTROY THEM DMT SESSIONS

  9. There aint no Esham hate here bro. I got Reel Life tatted on my wrist mufucka.

    Eshams vids just suck. Every single one of them SUCKS. They are unwatchable. simple as that.

    THE FEAR IS GREATER THEN ANYTHING ICP HAS DONE PERIOD.

  10. Forgot all about that vid, it’s dope as fuck, I love that vid and I love that song. So in that regard I retract my statement of “every single one of them sucks”. To bad it’s the good one he’s got and it came out in like 93, shits nearly 20 years old.

    Woo Woo had decant production and it looked good but it and the song was Esham ultra light.

    E needs to get back to pre Tongues style shit. Repentance had some good shit, A1 was decent at best, Lambs was 87% filler tracks and I haven’t heard much of SA or SE but what I have hasn’t impressed.

    Look, I love Esham, I respect everything he’s done I was just using him as an example of an artist that doesn’t have the ability to get his videos on to the TV and shit due to budget and more recently shitty content.

  11. As far as icp is concerned, I love their old shit, don’t listen 2 the new shit, its garbage:/, selling out shiiiiit I would say yea they have gotten dam close to makin it seem that way, playin @ that festival so what! They played @ woodstock 99! That’s a mainstream festival, its bot like they do it all the time, haha o well I will still listen 2 the other artists on the label🙂

  12. You guys used to talk shit about esham. And now you are swinging from his beansack. Esham is a shitty rapper, and always has been. The only reason he was famous to begin with was because he invented the wicked shit. Icp took it to heights that eshams dead soul couldn’t get to. Icp is more successful that esham or any member of the JH will ever be. Whether you like it or not.

  13. alright asshole’s just because mainstream sample’s them doesnt make them mainstream , they are their own thing , as for having radio songs and hits i have never heard them on anything but sirius radio and that is different because its uncensored and doesnt pander to mainstream

    but in the end you have to be smart enough to realize in this buisness you have to make comprimises and as far as it goes icp has made very few , they love their fans showing it with festivals ,wrestling events ,musical guest;s and an open invitation to not be judged .

    icp build their own industry they didnt have record executives making them comprimise along the way like so many others ,even tupac had to comprimise more than icp just to be heard so give credit to the smartest scrubs their is , they got a legion of outcast’s all looking for a good time ,some faygo and nedden for all
