“As you may have read, the Gathering of the Juggalos is a four-day event, hosted by Insane Clown Posse, that consists of horror rap, lots of drugs, women flashing their breasts, horrific sanitary conditions and Faygo soda, the event’s officially unofficial drink, which is poured, chugged and sprayed in ample amounts. Last year, the Gathering drew attention after performer Tila Tequila was pelted with empty bottles and feces. But the bands who play here, and their fans, have been the subject of hand-wringing news reports for years. Insane Clown Posse sell shirts that say, “Most Hated Band in the World,” which is hard to argue with. It would not be an uncommon opinion to say the Juggalos represent the end of civilization.
Of course, whatever poor people are up to always represents the end of civilization. Anything that makes poor people get loud and rowdy scares us middle-classers — which, thank you very much, I am.”
