so... the idiot clown posse has a new song about a guy breaking down and going nuts. it's called chris benoit. i think they sample one of his promos and a picture of him fades in and out during the video.

It seems they are using the term "Chris Benoit" as a slang for losing it, more than anything else.  Similar to people using "Go columbine" or "going dahmer" etc.  Not common but it exists.

“It’s about that loss of sanity,” Violent J said during a break in the shoot. “It’s about the snapping, that moment of panic.”

I kind of like the song, the last album was excellent in my opinion, hoping this one is as well.

maybe i should have posted my thoughts when i initially posted the video. at the time i was unsure about what i thought. i knew i didn't like it, but i found myself being more disgusted by it than i should have been considering all the terrible things i've said and laughed at. though one of my friends pointed out to me that there is a difference between making an offensive joke around friends and writing a song about a tragedy in an effort to make money. i understand what they say they're doing, but they could have done it tons of other ways. they can say that they're not glorifying him all they want, but the reality is they are glorifying his final acts. since that is the basis of the allusion to benoit. having his picture fade in and out as a man is being killed makes it even worse.

personal aside, i've always thought icp was terrible. not in an offensive way, just in general as a phenomena of ignorance and stupidity. even before they revealed they had no idea how magnets work.

Homeless, your last couple of sentences summarize my feelings on those two perfectly. I can't stand ICP.

I suppose I needed another reason to hate them, sure.

That song was somewhere between "god this is awful" and "I may vomit at any moment". Chorus, lyrics, everything...and to top it off they gave it that title.

I'm not a huge fan of rap music, but this doesn't even qualify.

I read a tweet one that said "Juggalos are the scratch and dent bin of the human race". I can't lie, it made me laugh pretty hard.
I'm the wind, baby.

for a rap song it teetered between madness (because of the lyrics and nature) and some form of twisted genius (because they probably were aiming for that and succeeded)

as far as I'm concerned if any future murders of a similar type and nature are perpetrated, and the media describes the murderer as pulling a "Benoit" I'll blame this song.
