Ted Nugent is still somehow a free man despite repeatedly calling for the assassination of President Barack Obama while also being one of those extra annoying know-it-all types of anti-vaxxer who still spreads COVID misinformation even after having COVID. The man who’s famous for performing in a loincloth, advocating bow hunting, and writing songs about the “pleasures” of being with teenage girls, Nugent makes Mike Lindell look like a serious individual, and his right-wing cray-cray rants all point to someone who needs some serious therapy and deprogramming.
Until someone saves Ted Nugent from himself, thereby saving all of us from Ted Nugent, he’ll keep up his verbal urine stream of nonsense just to make sure he gets mentioned in a news cycle once a year. And that once a year came at the very end of 2021, with the Noodge–sorry, the Nuge–gargling the names of too many actual musicians in his mouth and then spitting them all out in a unhinged diatribe while complaining that he’s not in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
It’s apparently shocking to no one except Nugent that the artists he name-checked (Madonna, Patti Smith, Grandmaster Flash, and ABBA) have been inducted, while the erstwhile member of Damn Yankees watches from his bunker in Waco, Texas, and wonders why Styx and Triumph aren’t in there along with him.
If you don’t want to hear about the racist, child molester Ted Nugent I suggest you step inside the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame pic.twitter.com/CurucpEYza

It’s hard to imagine the man who’s rattled off every kind of slur against every minority community on the planet feeling insecure about being kept out of the Hall of Fame, but jealousy is always what fuels the core of every bully.

Writing about Nugent for Variety, Chris Willman quotes the man who wrote a song called “Wang Dang Sweet Poontang” justifying his issues with the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame: Insisting it’s nothing personal, Nugent says, ”I’m not angry that I’m not in there because I’m having so much fun that it’s stupid.” But, he asks, “Why isn’t a band like Triumph in there, but Grandmaster Flash is? That’s just dishonest! Why are Patti Smith, ABBA, and Madonna in the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame, but not Styx? Are you kidding me?! You can only explain that is that the people who made those decisions are just plain rotten people! The Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame should genuflect to Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, Howlin’ Wolf, Muddy Waters (and) the Funk Brothers… How dare you put Grandmaster Flash, ABBA, and Madonna in that?”
Maybe Ted Nugent can team up with Kanye West for a "Band of Brothers" GQP tour… pic.twitter.com/Z8ilsb50Wm

Maybe someone could challenge Nugent to explain how he’s had any real impact on music, other than that whole loincloth moment. He’s now known for being a hunting advocate who fancies himself a wordsmith while cranking out the latest MAGA propaganda, and Twitter had no problem reminding him of that.

Dear Ted Nugent,
You aren’t in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame because songs like Wango Tango totally suck. But your political positions make it funnier that you are mad about it.

Ted Nugent: I haven’t made it into the Rock Hall of Fame because the people who run it are dishonest.

Ted Nugent calls people who run the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame "Dishonest" and "Rotten". I can smell his jealousy from here….and his body odor.
