The Most Gloriously Absurd Lyrics in Hip Hop History

Juggalos rejoice! The new Insane Clown Posse album is finally out this week — it was due earlier this year, but record company wrangling resulted in its release date being pushed until the end of summer. Of course, beyond their selective appeal to Faygo devotees, ICP are largely known to the general public because of the immortal couplets from their 2009 single “Miracles,” which will go down in history as one of the most ridiculous and somehow awesome songs ever made. In celebration of their new record, then, here’s a selection of the most gloriously awesome lyrics that hip hop has given the world. Your suggestions are of course welcome. (And just to pre-empt any of the accusations that have a magical way of appearing in our comments section every time we say anything remotely negative about hip hop: we’ve done this before for ’80s pop songs and we’ll most likely do it for other genres in due course. So there.)

Insane Clown Posse — “Miracles”

Best bit: “Water, fire, air and dirt/ Fucking magnets, how do they work?/ And I don’t wanna talk to a scientist/ Y’all motherfuckers lying, and getting me pissed”

Yeah, we know the Internet went crazy (ironically crazy, of course) about this song a couple of years back, but we still think that between the song’s actually rather touching idiot savant view of the world and the immortal “magnets” line above, it’s unsurpassed in the band’s oeuvre as far as sheer absurd glory goes.
