God Rest Ye Merry Juggalos

Santa Clown is coming to town.

I have no explanation for this. It's not quite an homage, not quite a parody. I find it every bit as bizarre as you do.

This is so perfect you scare me. Why, why? How?? How do you possess such diabolical skills?

It's just that two things had to happen for this to exist. First, you had to come up with the idea. Doing that I can understand. But second, you had to have the follow-through to actually go through with it.

"Jump down the chimney, take a dump on your floor!"

Yeah! That was pretty fucking great.

Why do you have to swear so much? There are better ways to express yourself, you know. *shakes head sadly* also, get a haircut

That circus synth line is pretty swell.

No way. There is no way this song exists.

Wow. I'm having undergraduate flashbacks to when I was roommate with an ICP fan. He even had a cat named Faygo (good cat... I miss him). This is a creepily impressive impersonation.

Glad you guys enjoyed this. It really started with the title: I heard "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen" on the radio one afternoon and thought it would be funny with Juggalos. I worked out the beat a couple hours later, but didn't write the second verse until, I think, Christmas Eve.

I have a sort of strange thing with ICP. I've really only been exposed to them through my cousin--a lifelong (real) rap fan who, presumably by virtue of being a white kid in the semirural South, got into ICP in the mid-90s. I remember riding home from the airport with him, blasting ICP in his rattletrap pickup with the "sick" system and thinking it wasn't so bad. I wouldn't count myself as a fan, by any stretch, but I get what they do, and I can dig it, if I'm in the right mindset.

Plus I like swearing and cartoon violence.

I have about the exact same experience with and opinions of Insane Clown Posse. It only starts to weird me out when my brain loses the "cartoon" part of the violence.
