Several names were considered before Bruce recalled his dream of a clown running around in Delray, which became the inspiration for the group's new name: Insane Clown Posse.
The group decided they would all don face paint due to the success of their former clown-painted hype man.
In late 1991, the group had the problem of having spent more money on production than was covered by returns.
The group decided that its gangsta rap style was the cause: Most emcees at the time used similar styles, making it difficult for Inner City Posse to distinguish itself stylistically.
Later that year the group released the self-produced EP entitled Dog Beats.
While trying to get stations to play the single, Bruce learned that one of the stations he and Abbiss visited would be interviewing local rapper Esham, who Bruce considered to be a "superstar"; Bruce had recently begun to collect Esham's albums, as he had done with other local rappers; by the time he had discovered Esham, the rapper had released two full-length albums and three EPs.
After recording only three songs for ,000 with Miller, Alex Abbiss made his first major managerial move by finding another producer, Mike E. Allmusic reviewer Stephen Thomas Erlewine compared the group's performance on the album to "a third-rate Beastie Boys supported by a cut-rate Faith No More, all tempered with the sensibility that made GWAR cult heroes—only with..sexism and jokes that..up sounding racist".
During a concert in 1993, Bruce threw an open bottle of Faygo at a row of concertgoers who were giving them the finger.
It was later revealed that Disney was being criticized by the Southern Baptist Convention at the time because of Disney's promotion of "Gay Days" at Disneyland, in addition to presiding over the gay-themed television sitcom Ellen.This effort led the group to Dallas, Texas, where it persuaded several music retail stores to stock the album. The group started recording its fourth studio album, The Great Milenko, in 1996, during which Disney requested that the tracks "The Neden Game", "Under the Moon", and "Boogie Woogie Wu" be removed.Disney also asked that the lyrics of other tracks be changed, threatening to not release the album otherwise.The original lineup of Insane Clown Posse was John Utsler (John Kickjazz), Joe Bruce (Violent J) and Joey Utsler (Shaggy 2 Dope).John Utsler left before Carnival of Carnage was released in 1992.
Upon returning home that night, Bruce says he had a dream in which "spirits in a traveling carnival appeared to him"—an image that would become the basis for the Dark Carnival mythology detailed in the group's Joker's Cards series.
