Several songs were recorded with the intention of releasing them on The Great Milenko.

Each of the six Joker's Cards relate to a specific character — an entity of the Dark Carnival — that tries to "save the human soul" by showing the wickedness inside of one's self.The Card ultimately issues a warning against such acts of sin, and enlightens listeners that The Great Milenko is a part of every individual, and that they have the power to fall under his illusions or cast his hoaxes aside.The Great Milenko featured more rock influences than previous Insane Clown Posse albums, including an introduction performed by Alice Cooper and guitar tracks performed by Steve Jones (on "Piggie Pie"), and Slash (on "Halls of Illusions").The Great Milenko is the fourth studio album by American hip hop group Insane Clown Posse, released on August 12, 1997, by Hollywood Records, in association with Psychopathic Records.As the fourth Joker's Card in the group's Dark Carnival mythology, the album's lyrics focus on the titular Great Milenko, an illusionist who tries to trick individuals into greed and other such sins.

The album was recorded and initially released by the Disney-owned record label Hollywood Records.The album was taken off shelves by Hollywood hours after its release, in response to criticism from the Southern Baptist Church of decisions that the church believed did not reflect Disney's family-friendly image, although Disney claimed that the album was released due to an oversight by its review board.After Hollywood terminated the group's contract, Insane Clown Posse signed a new contract with Island Records (whose parent at the time, Poly Gram, distributed Hollywood releases in North America), which agreed to release the album as it was originally intended.The music of The Great Milenko features a rock sound and features guest appearances by popular rock stars Alice Cooper, Steve Jones and Slash.Although the album was poorly received by critics, it debuted at number 63 on the Billboard charts, and was later certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). The group's manager Alex Abbiss negotiated a contract with the Disney's Hollywood Records label, which reportedly paid million to purchase the Insane Clown Posse contract from Battery/Jive Records.Disney requested that the tracks "The Neden Game", "Under the Moon", and "Boogie Woogie Wu" be removed because of lyrics referencing abuse of women, rape and murder, and the slaughter of children, respectively.
