Insane Clown Posse
Insane Clown Posse
When Insane Clown Posse (ICP) emerged from the darkness surrounding Detroit's underground music scene in the early 90s, the world had yet to imagine the impact that the hardcore hip-hop style spawned by these two artists — Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope — would bring to bear on mainstream music. Shunned by mainstream music players like MTV and castigated in the media, banned from radio airwaves and yanked from the shelves of "conventional" retail outlets, ICP was dealt a hand that seemed destined for swift and certain failure. Instead, the duo amassed a following of millions of fans endearingly called "Juggalos" and smashed through the ceiling of music industry expectation.
Over the course of a career spanning three decades, ICP repeatedly spat in the faces of industry experts and popular convention, building what is now recognized as the "Dark Carnival," a mythological community shrouded more with speculation than understanding. Based on the idea of an afterlife in which souls await their ultimate destiny in heaven or hell, the Dark Carnival was revealed in a series of ICP productions that vaulted the duo to uncharted industry heights in music, films, wrestling and festivals. ICP's underground messaging was led by Psychopathic Records, whose rally call of "defiance" prompted independent success amid an industry packed with short-lived, industry-manufactured artists with fickle fan bases.

Over the past 30 years, ICP has released more than 23 albums, including more than 10 RIAA certifications and the Billboard Top 200's longest running hip-hop record. Their latest release, "Bang! Pow! Boom!" debuted as Billboard's No. 4 album in September 2009.
Despite ICP's astounding album success, the true essence of the Dark Carnival emerges in the duo's live performances, perhaps best-known for huge stage sets, multiple costume changes, character extras and the trademark spraying of hundreds of liters of Faygo on the twisted mass of painted Juggalos in the audience.
Attila
Attila is an American metalcore band from Atlanta, Georgia, formed in 2005. Frontman Chris Fronzak started the band in high school and, not wanting to use typical death metal terms, adopted the name from Attila the Hun, which he came across in a book. Though their original formation was in 2005, the band did not start touring full-time until around 2010. They have released six full-length albums. Their most successful album About That Life was produced by Joey Sturgis, released on June 25, 2013 and debuted on the Billboard 200 chart at #22. Attila has toured across the United States with bands such as Hed PE, Arsonists Get All the Girls, See You Next Tuesday, Emmure, Chelsea Grin, Oceano, Falling in Reverse, and Metro Station. The band is currently signed to SharpTone Records, and released their studio album CHAOS on November 4, 2016.
