I’ll be honest. I don’t really know a lot about the Insane Clown Posse. I’d heard of them, sure, and was aware that they were some kind of rap group, who were known for their wacky stage shows and wackier makeup and outfits. Also, they’re totally hardcore.

The Top Ten Cover Songs You Probably Didn’t Even Realize Were Cover Songs.

I’m beginning to get a little bit concerned that I’m becoming one of “those” music fans. The kind I used to make fun of for being to old, to stubborn and to locked into their own era of music, uninterested in expanding their listening experiences to anything beyond the music they know – the music they grew up with. People who still listen to “the Eagles” or “the Doobie Brothers” even though so much music has come out since then, and neither band was very good to begin with anyways. I was always confidant that this then would never be me. I’m young! I’m hip! I’m in the “know!” I keep up with whatever’s young and hip and in the “know!” Right? RIGHT?

Today we delve into the realm of popular music. Or, to be slightly more accurate, music that was briefly very popular, but is now an embarassment to the very idea of sound – yet somehow, still remains AWESOME.
