Juggalo or Juggalette (the latter being feminine) is a name given to fans of Insane Clown Posse or any other Psychopathic Records hip hop group. Juggalos have developed their own idioms, slang, and characteristics.[1]

History

The term originated during a 1994 live performance by Insane Clown Posse. During the song "The Juggla", Joseph Bruce addressed the audience as Juggalos, and the positive response resulted in Bruce and Joseph Utsler using the word thereafter to refer to themselves and their friends, family, and fans, including other Psychopathic Records artists.[2] Juggalos have compared themselves to a family.[3][4] Common characteristics include drinking the inexpensive soft drink Faygo and wearing face paint.[3] They view the lyrics of Psychopathic Records artists (which are often violent in nature) as a catharsis for aggression.[5][6] Several well known figures have identified as Juggalos. These include professional wrestlers Kazushige Nosawa[7] and Vampiro,[8] and rappers Chuck D,[9] Coolio,[10] Kung Fu Vampire,[11] MURS,[12] and Vanilla Ice.[13] According to Utsler, "[Juggalos come] from all walks of life -- from poverty, from rich, from all religions, all colors. [...] It doesn't matter if you're born with a silver spoon in your mouth, or a crack rock in your mouth."[14]

The Gathering of the Juggalos

The Gathering of the Juggalos is an annual event for the Juggalo Family put on by Psychopathic Records first staged in July 2000.[15] Described by Bruce as a "Juggalo Woodstock", the Gathering of the Juggalos spans four days, and includes concerts, wrestling, games, contests, autograph sessions, and seminars with artists.[15] The 2000 Gathering featured Kottonmouth Kings, Project Born, and Vampiro, who both wrestled and performed.[15] The second Gathering of the Juggalos was held from July 13–July 15, 2001 at the SeaGate Convention Centre in Toledo, Ohio.[15] The event featured the same activities as the first Gathering of the Juggalos, as well as guests such as Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, Tech N9ne, Vanilla Ice, and Three 6 Mafia.[15]
