The parking lot outside of Myth was ripe with the sugary smell of Faygo and cigarettes on Saturday night, thanks to the thousands of Juggalos and Juggalettes gathered outside before Insane Clown Posse's Psychopathic Records Shockfest show.

From the outside, ICP fans seem like an intimidating group, but when we caught up with them ahead of the show, they welcomed us with open arms and chants galore.
"I grew up as an outcast. Juggalos accepted me. It's an acceptance for people who aren't normally accepted," one fan explained to us.
With scores of fans chanting "Family! Family! Family!" together, it's not difficult to see the appeal of finding a community where fans can rock out at a show in bold face paint and Hatchet Man tats, guzzling soda until dawn.
"Some people don't even call themselves Juggalos -- I don't -- and they're still Juggalos," says Ian King, an Insane Clown Posse fan from Delano, Minnesota.
That night, we also made an attempt to finally discover the best flavor of Faygo. Verdict: pretty much all of them. Oh, and don't bring up Shasta.
