You might think a band that dresses up as evil clowns and performs hard-core hip-hop would have trouble attracting a large fan base, but you'd be wrong. Insane Clown Posse is popular. So popular, in fact, that their fans have their own name — Juggalos — and their own annual festival. This year's Gathering of the Juggalos, held in southern Illinois, featured a performance by reality-TV star turned hip-hop newbie Tila Tequila, who was reportedly hit with rocks, garbage and human excrement thrown by angry Juggalos. Maybe her music just wasn't up to the Juggalos' standards. After all, it's hard to beat the Insane Clown Posse song "Miracles," which features the mind-blowingly poetic line, "Water, fire, air and dirt/ F______ magnets, how do they work?"
