One of the few bands who can admit to having "songs that suck" on their b-sides and out-takes collection, Detroit's Insane Clown Posse throws in absolutely everything on FORGOTTEN FRESHNESS. Opening with the hilariously obnoxious, Cypress Hill-tinged "Hey Vato," this two disc set is filled with the over-the-top nastiness that put ICP on the map. Juvenile sex humor is abundant ("Fat Sweaty Betty," which carries an unsettling plot twist) as are violent murder fantasies ("I Didn't Mean To Kill 'Em"). Xenophobia is also addressed; "Willy Bubba" is a cartoonish, first-day-of-school nightmare. Side two finds even more raw material, notably the collection of rappers on "85 Bucks An Hour," where the ICP calls in the whole crew, even taking a page from the Jerky Boys, indulging in a little tele-terrorism.
