The tunes — “Chop Chop Slide” and “In My Room” — have been used on the video-sharing social network approaching a combined two million times.
The most popular, “Chop Chop Slide,” from Insane Clown Posse’s 2009 album Bang! Pow! Boom!, already has 1.1 million uses in videos on TikTok alone. Owing to the sinister vibe of the song, a hallmark of ICP’s horrorcore vibe, it frequently crops up in Halloween-themed clips. “In My Room,” a cut from 2004s The Wraith: Hell’s Pit, has been used around 750,000 times, usually in a way that’s also creepy or suggestive.

As of this posting, “Chop Chop Slide” sits at No. 24 on Spotify’s Viral 50 chart for the United States, with “In My Room” at No. 40. TikTok notoriety has recently proven to be a boon for bands who get some buzz on the platform, even ones already established.
In August, Violent J, one half of Insane Clown Posse with fellow rapper Shaggy 2 Dope, revealed to the audience at the band’s 2021 Gathering of the Juggalos festival that he had been suffering from heart failure. As a result, ICP plan to launch a farewell tour next year, though the duo indicated they’d continue playing one-off concerts after that.
In the past, Violent J blasted the media for comparing Juggalos, the term for ICP devotees, to supporters of former president Donald Trump. Last year, Insane Clown Posse revived their T-shirts that contain the anti-racism slogan, “Fuck Your Rebel Flag!“
