As a Juggalo: Do any ICP persons or Juggs endorse punk rock? 

Q: Do any ICP persons or Juggs endorse punk rock?

A: Absolutely, 110 percent. Actually, the gentleman that introduced me to Alex Abbiss — you know, their original fuckin' president and manager— and then put me onto the cats that put on the MTV Shockumentary was a huge fan of fan of Insane Clown Posse, and frontman for an awesome Detroit punk rock group called the Bump-N-Uglies, Justin "Bubba" MacKenzie. At the end of the day, Justin was a great friend and a great visionary. There are an enormous amount of Juggalos and Juggalettes that are also punk rock fans. I don't know if it's because punk rockers are extremely open-minded and great people, just like the Juggalos and Juggalettes, or that we share the same passion as far as being a little bit different, and in my opinion, a better class of person that is not 100 percent focusing on just strictly what the mainstream dictates. Even though they're in two different classifications, at the end of the day, they run hand in hand with each other.
