ICP Are Actually Evangelical Christians!
Digging up an article about ICP being evangelical Christians on The Guardian is a rather amusing find right before the weekend. Yup, that’s right. Insane Clown Posse have this entire time secretly been evangelical Christians! They’ve only been pretending to be brutal and sadistic to trick their fans into believing in God. They released a song, Thy Unveiling, that spelt out the revelation beyond all doubt:
Some of those ICP Christian lyrics:
Fuck it, we got to tell.
All secrets will now be told
No more hidden messages
…Truth is we follow GOD!!!
We’ve always been behind him
The carnival is GOD
And may all juggalos find him
We’re not sorry if we tricked you.
According to the Insane Clown Posse expose article, the news “shook the juggalo community to its core”. While some fans claimed they’d actually had an inkling, having deciphered some of the hidden messages in several songs, others said they felt deeply betrayed and outraged: they’d been innocently enjoying all those songs about chopping people up and shooting women, and it was Christian rock? Are you an Insane Clown Posse juggalo that is outraged? Then let us know!
Violent J explained himself unapologetically to a New Jersey newspaper:
“You have to speak their language. You have to interest them, gain their trust, talk to them and show you’re one of them. You’re a person from the street and you speak of your experiences. Then at the end you can tell them: God has helped me.”
In the Guardian article about ICP actually bring Christians, the newspaper propes “But still, given that you were secretly Christian, are there any lyrics you now regret?”…to which the Insane Clown Posse frontman Violent J says quietly.
“Dumb, stupid, idiotic lyrics that I said without knowing any better. Back in the day. I really don’t want to say. There’s one lyric…just dumb lyrics. I said one lyric one time that I hate. I may have been feeling really down that day. I said something, I live with that every day. I don’t want to point it out.”
Turns out it was the track “Gangster Codes” and the lyric: “I took aim at a stray dog, and I blew out its brains, it was fresh as hell, no feelings for others, you gotta be cold.”‘
ICP’s Violent J says releasing Thy Unveiling, coming out as a Christian, was the most exciting moment of his life.
“It felt so good, brother. I was fucking in heaven. Let me tell you something: I would go running at night, and my feet wouldn’t even touch the ground. I had my headphones on, I’d be listening to Thy Unveiling, and I’d be in such a zone that my feet wouldn’t even be touching the ground. I’d be literally levitating.”
