Juggalo (feminine Juggalette, or Juggala in Spanish speaking countries) is a name given to fans of the group Insane Clown Posse or any other Psychopathic Records hip hop group. Juggalos have developed their own idioms, slang and characteristics

The term originated during a 1994 live performance by Insane Clown Posse. During the song "The Juggla", Violent J addressed the audience as Juggalos, and the positive response resulted in Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope using the word thereafter to refer to themselves and their friends, family and fans, including other Psychopathic Records artists.

According to Shaggy 2 Dope, "Juggalos come from all walks of life – from poverty, from rich, from all religions, all colors. It doesn't matter if you're born with a silver spoon in your mouth, or a crack rock in your mouth." Juggalos have compared themselves to a family.

Common characteristics of identifying a member of the Juggalo subculture are as follows:

  • Drinking and spraying the inexpensive soft drink Faygo.
  • Listening to horrorcore and other types of underground rap music.
  • Wearing face paint, generally those either like a clown or perhaps similar to corpse paint.
  • Wearing HatchetGear.
  • Having the Hatchet man logo applied on personal effects and, die cast, worn as jewelry.
  • Doing hair in the spider legs style, i.e. like the Twiztid members
  • Displaying the gesture of wicked clown, the westside sign with the left hand and the C sign in ASL with the right, with arms crossed over.
  • Making and responding to "whoop, whoop" calls.
  • Expressing a (generally) tongue-in-cheek obsession with murder, committed with a blade weapon.
