Am I the only one who thinks it odd that a "subculture" that describes itself as "independent thinkers" all wear the same clothes, shoes, hair styles, and listen to the same music? Counter-culture?.... please, just another group of fad followers. Remember "Grunge"?
"If you want to be cool, come to my gang, It's where the smart kids are!" You just have to buy yourself a uniform and learn the mantra..
Just like Punk, and all of it's bastard offspring.
Does anyone remember learning about Maslows "Hierarchy of Needs"? Right in the middle is "Social Needs". The vast majority of people feel the need to belong to something, so I can see how acting like an elitist and dressing like a bum can be an attractive proposition, especially when its clear they haven't figured out who the hell they are yet. So while they are annoying and a waste, I agree that Juggalos are infinitely worse and should absolutely be eliminated Auschwitz-style...
