If he wants to do something weird he should work with Primus or Devo or some other "weird" band that has some credibility.

Re: Jack White records single with Insane Clown Posse

I love Jack White and have 95% of everything he's recorded. This will just go in that other 5%.

I'm disappointed in my kid for cheating on his workbook a few weeks ago, not when grown men put out an awful record.

Hip hop stars shocked at White's offer

Hip-hop group Insane Clown Posse were awestruck when Jack White reached out for a collaboration, because they had no idea why the rocker would want to be associated with one of the "most non-respected musicians today".

The former White Stripes star has produced the horror-rappers' new single Lick My Ass, which will be released on White's Third Man Records.

But rapper Violent J tells MTV News the song wasn't even their idea.

"(White) called us out of the blue and asked if we'd be down to come down to Nashville, to his studio, to do some work. He's one of the most respected musicians today, and we're one of the most non-respected musicians today, and I think he knew it would drop a lot of jaws and shock people."

It took some convincing for White to get the Posse onboard the project, which makes use of a little-known Mozart tune, explicitly titled Lech Mich Im Arsch, which translates in English to 'lick me in the ass'.

"(I thought), 'Nah, man, I'm not into Mozart. We don't know nothing about that s**t.' And when we went into the studio, and he told us about the 'lick my ass' thing, we were like, 'OK, we get it.' A song called Lick My Ass, put ICP on it. We like to think there's a little more method to our madness. But once he told us that Mozart had a fun side to him, and liked to f**k around with his friends and make funny songs and s**t like that, we all jelled."

And Violent J admits the duo will be forever grateful to White for taking a chance on them, even if others won't be as accepting of their music.

"He was really cool and, of course, we were really geeked. We were like, 'Hell yeah, we'll do a song with Jack White. That's awesome.' And we were hella (sic) thankful, but at the same time, we knew he was going to catch a lot of s**t for it."

Re: Jack White records single with Insane Clown Posse

Pretty much what I figured. I think Jack is trying to show his fans not to take everything he does so damn seriously all the time and was just doing something to screw around and have a little fun with. The reactions in this thread and the people over at the Third Man message boards are pretty hilarious how upset people get when they really have no reason to be upset. If people don't like it it's not like he's forcing it on us.

How horribly embarrassing for ICP.

Personally, I think Jack White is garbage and haven't ever had any interest in anything he has done before. So, nothing has really changed. I will say, this collaboration just has me confused more than anything. It is outstandingly awful, though.
