Insane Clown Posse sues feds over 'gang' label


05:52 |

Insane Clown Posse plans to file suit against the federal government for the FBI's labeling of Juggalos -- as fans of the group are known -- as a gang, the group announced Friday at the annual Gathering of the Juggalos in rural Illinois. Last fall, fans of the Detroit-made horror-rap duo turned up on the FBI's National Gang Threat Assessment. The government report also cited street gangs with ties to Mexican drug cartels and other gangs linked to homicides, drug trafficking and gun-running. "Many Juggalos subsets exhibit gang-like behavior and engage in criminal activity and violence," the FBI report said. ICP's Violent J said Friday that the list affected the group's merchandise sales and caused police problems for some fans. "They're punishing fans for being Juggalos," he said. "This is the government's ways of telling us what you can listen to, what you can wear." Beasties sue Monster Mike (Mike D) Diamond, Adam (Ad-Rock) Horovitz and the estate of Adam (MCA) Yauch filed a lawsuit against Monster Energy Corp. on Wednesday, accusing the energy drink company of improperly using music by their group, Beastie Boys. According to a report at www.eonline.com, the suit says that a video on the company's website that promotes its Ruckus in the Rockies event is "comprised substantially of excerpts from the Beastie Boys Sound Recordings and the Beastie Boys Musical Compositions totaling more than three minutes in duration." The suit also accuses the company of giving "consumers the impression that Beastie Boys permitted the use of their name and intellectual property, and participated in connection with Monster's promotion of its products and events." They are seeking unspecified damages.
