When I first started writing heavy metal reviews, back in the days of AOL 4.0, it was for one goal only: to someday write a list of six songs related to a Detroit rap outfit that dresses like clowns and sprays people with soda. I tried and I tried, but I never seemed to be able to convince my editors that such a list would ignite the internet into a powerful frenzy, forever immortalizing their publication. That is, until now.
In celebration of RFT Music editor Daniel Hill and I possibly being stabbed to death by swiss army knives or maybe drowned in a river of Faygo and bongwater at the Gathering of the Juggalos (which we will be attending/covering for the next five days), I am finally able to live out that dream.
6. The Gories - "Trick Bag"
Who are the Gories and why are they first on this list? Because I'm trying to set a tone to keep you reading, you pinhead. The Gories were a garage rock band that started in the '80s and featured Mick Collins, who later went on to form another excellent band, the Dirtbombs. For those of you who are hip but still clueless, maybe you will know the Dirtbombs from a three-way split with the Terrible Twos and Dan Sartain. And for those few of you who are still reading this paragraph, the record that "Trick Bag" appears on was produced by Mike E. Clark. Clark is also known for his groundbreaking work with Insane Clown Posse, Twiztid, Axe Murder Boys and a ton of other Psychopathic Records artists.
5. Twiztid - "Bagz"
Twiztid, otherwise known as Jamie Madrox and Monoxide Child, are Insane Clown Posse acolytes. All I know about Twiztid is that back when I used to hang out with this dude named Jesse in high school, he would play this song all the time while smoking pot. I once watched him eat a bunch of magic mushrooms on a McDonalds cheeseburger and we had to sit in his car for a long time before he was okay to drive again. Anyway, I've always had a soft spot for Twiztid as a result. Not to mention the lyric, "your parents hate us cuz we smell like cannabis and remind them of the incubus," is pretty sick.
