Insane Clown Posse And Jack White Are Working On A Collaboration

There have been some truly bizarre collaborations in the realm of music. Elton John and Eminem to Aerosmith and Run-DMC are examples of this because of their distant sounds, differing ideology, and even greater gap in musical style. Oddly enough, these unique artists actually put together something worthwhile. Despite having a long list of extremely opposite factors, the music that these people made together was actually groundbreaking work. I guess whoever said variety is the spice of life was correct.
Of course depending on who you ask, it’ll differ from person to person, but this latest collaboration has definitely taken the cake as the weirdest. And you know what? It’s actually good. Insane Clown Posse and Jack White of the White Strips have collaborated together for a truly bizarre piece of music. You heard correctly, the shock-horror-freak show-rappers have come together with the bluesy superstar from The Raconteurs and made a song, or two. Couldn’t get much better, right?
“The music collaboration you’ve all been waiting for. 230 years in the making,” is a hilarious take from their teaser trailer, which you can watch below, that sums up the song quite well. Though as I stated above, the song is actually pretty damn good. Despite what most of you are thinking, their latest endeavor reaches all the way back to Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and revitalizes the unknown song “Leck Mich Im Arsch.” The only part of this idea, so far, that translates into a perfect ICP song is that the English wording translates too “Lick me in the arse.” How about that for an ICP song?

The track was brought up-to-date using the Nashville rock band JEFF the Brotherhood, who created an interesting perspective on the classic Mozart’s melody. Complimenting the song is the famous—or infamous?--ICP rap style and Jack White's recognizable guitar. What’s even crazier though is that “Leck Mich Im Arsch” is part of a B-side titled “Mountain Girls” via Third Man Records, which will have the two clowns rapping in a country song, and White hopefully wrangling them up. The lyrical content will include shotgun weddings, moonshine and meth. That sounds about right… Check out the teaser trailer for this EP below.
What do you think of this collaboration? Did the song appease to your musical tastes, or was it like all the other ICP songs?
