Is It A Sin To Listen To ICP ?
This weeks’ Ask A Juggalo with Vinnie Monaster aka Vinnie the ICP Kid is now available in the Detroit Metro Times!
Today Vinnie answers: “Is it a sin to listen to ICP ?“
“I understand completely where they’re coming from and, in my opinion, as long as we are completely on the same page, this is nothing more than entertainment. We can sit there and we can decipher and interpret what we read in scripture or the Bible. And I don’t want to offend anybody, but this is 2015. At this point, there are many things that would not have been acceptable in the ’50s, ’60s, ’70s, the ’80s, or even in the ’90s. Until 2000, I don’t believe that this world was anywhere near as open-minded and understanding as it should be. In my opinion, I’m also Christian — would I in God’s church start reciting or singing foul or profane language? No. Would I go into church with a Shaggy 2 Dope “Fuck Off” T-shirt? No. At the end of the day, it’s just entertainment, and it’s crazy to me to think that you would be disrespecting the Lord by listening to their music…“

I have to say, I agree. Any music created through Psychopathic Records is not a sin to listen to because if it was, well one, we’d all be damned, and two, why isn’t any of today’s music on the radio also sinful? I mean, there’s plenty of music with cusses and profound words used to describe some foul deeds. The difference is, ICP‘s and any Juggalo‘s music has a story behind it, one that encourages Juggalos to live a better life for themselves… well some of the songs do at least, other’s are just for fun.
