The Wraith: Shangri-La

In September 2003, Insane Clown Posse was voted the worst band of any musical genre in Blender, with The Wraith: Shangri-La named as the group’s worst album.[18] Despite describing Insane Clown Posse as “imbecilic white rappers”, the magazine complimented the album for its “charming, good-natured idiocy.”[19] — Wikipedia entry on ICP

Considering all the other crap they had put out prior to this, the message of the liner notes and “Thy Unveiling” really don’t come as a surprise at all. It’s always been obvious that they believe in God and heaven and hell, and are looking to spook other morons into toeing a Christian line in order to get through the pearly gates and perpetually indulge in drug abuse, violence, treating women like pieces of meat, and other suitably holy activities. (*yawn*) Most of the album strongly reflects this.

The Butterfly story: It’s cute that they are that sensitive to the plight of an insect, but heaven’s a lie. Learn from your mistakes and move on, instead of turning them into justification for self-righteous belief in bullshit.
