Ted Nugent Should Face The Music

The fact that we are even commenting on Ted Nugent proves that this is a slow news day. After all, the aging former wanna-be rock star was not even very notable or relevant in his hey day back in the 1970s. He only had one very marginal hit song followed by a seemingly unending string of albums which were almost immediately relegated to the record store’s “discount bin”.

Following his dismal music career, Nugent became a fervent supporter of the NRA and the Republican Party. This makes perfect sense because Nugent is the model Republican citizen with his multiple marriages and eight children with three born out of wedlock. Like Republican Rep. Joe Walsh, Nugent was also a deadbeat dad who failed to pay his child support. Spin magazine even went so far as to include Ted Nugent in its list of the “100 Sleaziest Moments in Rock”. Why? Because in 1978, Nugent began a relationship with seventeen-year-old Hawaii native Pele Massa. Due to the age difference they could not marry so Nugent joined Massa’s parents in signing documents to make himself her legal guardian. Eewww!

Nugent is probably now known best for his violent and vulgar rhetoric directed towards Democratic Party politicians. For example, at a concert on August 21, 2007, Nugent made controversial comments about Democratic Party presidential aspirants Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton and California’s senators Barbara Boxer and Dianne Feinstein. He complained, “Obama’s a piece of shit, and I told him to suck on my machine gun.” Referring to Michigan governor Jennifer Granholm (in office 2003-11), during performances he would frequently interject “Jennifer Granholm, kiss my ass” into his songs, and shoot an arrow at her likeness. In a 2007 interview, in discussing running for governor of Michigan, he stated that Granholm “is not doing an ugly job, but as the perfect woman, she is scrotumless”.

Nugent’s most recent spew of hate speak might land him in jail however. Last week while giving a Mitt Romney stump speech at the 2012 NRA Convention in St. Louis, Nugent said, “If Barack Obama becomes the president in November, again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year.” He also compared the Obama administration to coyotes who needed to be shot, and encouraged voters to “chop [Democrats’] heads off in November.”

It would appear that Ted Nugent publicly proclaimed that he would attempt to assassinate or do harm to President Obama if he is elected again. Or, as CNN’s LZ Granderson put it, “A man with a truckload of guns has threatened the life of our president while the country’s at war.” In retrospect the recent comment about Ann Romney never having had a paying job in her life seems to pale in comparison.

Granderson went on to say,

Nugent’s words were: “If Barack Obama is elected, I’ll either be dead or in jail this time next year,” which sounds to me like he’s open to directing his disapproval of Obama in a way that is violent and unlawful. When you see that statement next to Nugent comparing Obama and his colleagues to coyotes that needed to be shot, as well as the need to “ride into that battlefield and chop their heads off in November,” I don’t see how that rant cannot be looked upon as a threat on the president’s life.

Ted Nugent’s words did not go unnoticed by the Secret Service however. He has been called in to speak with members of the agency who are responsible for guarding the President’s life today. Secret Service spokesman George Ogilvie confirmed that the agency was looking into the matter and said, “We are aware of the incident and we are taking appropriate follow-up.”

Looks like Ted Nugent may be forced to face the music.

Please remember to click on the song link below to not only familiarize yourselves with the tune but to have more fun singing along with today’s song parody which is based upon Ted Nugent’s only hit song.

 (sung to the Ted Nugent song “Cat Scratch Fever”)

Well I don’t know where Ted comes from
But he sure is dumb
Fits in with the G.O.P.
But I do know Nugent blew-it
And he sure blew it good
They give his songs away for free

Ted gives me rat ass fever
Rat ass fever

Well the first time that I thought it
Was on his radio show
Ted’s songs and his monologue did bore
He is nothing but a shock jock
Talking bout a race war
And calling Democrats “whores”

Ted gives me rat ass fever
Rat ass fever
Ted has that rat ass fever
Rat ass fever

He’s not too dangerous
He’s got no brain
Ted Nugent’s stra-stra-strange
No doubt about it
He’s been goin’ insane
Soon he’ll be sayin’ “bye-bye”
He wants Obama dead

(jail break)

He’ll be doing the jail tour
For the things he has planned
They might just throw away the key
No more hate speech on his show
Ted Nugent’s sure to be banned
It should be years before he’s free

Ted gives me rat ass fever
Rat ass fever
Ted has that rat ass fever

Rat ass fever
Rat ass fever
Rat ass fever
Rat ass fever
Rat ass fever

  1. Nothing will come of it. I suspect Nugent will escape with an excuse to pretend liberals have been over-reacting.

  2. Wow, I’m speechless, unlike Nugent, who cannot seem to keep his mouth shut, or learn howt give an opinion (as if we need his opinion) without making threats. Out of control!

  3. Uh oh! And all the NRA scrubbing won’t get this guy’s rant off the internet.

  4. The Hick and the Huckster

    The naughtiness of the lyrics didn’t stop Nugent from performing “fever” live for the white-haired old biddies in the audience of Huckabee’s tv show. Huckabee, playing along on bass, looked resplendent in his churchy Fox tv show suit and tie.

  5. Not that I would ever have those “I want to listen to Cat Scratch Fever moments,” but now… nope. I could care less about ever listening to that song again.

  6. Hi Lynnrockets! It has been duly noted that this fool made quite a spectacle of himself by soiling his drawers to avoid the draft! Coward! Perhaps history will repeat itself when the Secret Service intensely grills him about that poisonous diatribe he used towards the President. He is in good company with $arah, who worships guns as much as he does; they both need to be called out for the idiots they are. Besides, The Nooge had relations with underage girls – $arah should be concerned since she claimed others were stalking her daughters. She should set the example and keep him away from them. {crickets…}

    I am not a Nugent fan. Having said that, I am not a fan of BS either. If you want to maintain any sort of credibility, keep your facts straight and stop slanting them to fit your views and agendas. Nugent had the #1 top grossing tour for three straight years – a phenomenal achievement – against some very mighty competition. Debut album 1975 double platinum. 1976 “Free For All” album double platinum. 1977 “Cat Scratch Fever” TRIPLE platinum. Calling him a “wanna-be rock star” who was “not very notable or relevant in his day” is simply a falsehood.
