Music has a long tradition of inspiring fanaticism within fanbases. Consider the babybooming-pensioners at any Jimmy Buffet concert, the Parrotheads. Consider the smelly burnouts who follow around The Grateful Dead, the Deadheads. Even “Weird Al” Yankovic has a legion of rabid fans called “Close Personal Friends of Al.”

Now consider the Juggalos.
