Ted Nugent Throws His Love Grenade Into Your iPod

Because he’s always looking for ways to keep his name in the press, guitarist/outdoorsman/author/general loudmouth Ted Nugent has released a 10-song playlist—excuse me, “love manifesto”—into the wild in honor of Valentine’s Day. It is somehow not made up of 10 songs by the Nuge, although it does have a 30% “songs with variations on the word ‘Wang’ in the title” quotient. Feel the wango of his tango after the jump!

1. “Wang Dan Doodle” – Howlin’ Wolf
2. “The Flame” – Cheap Trick
3. “Whole Lotta Rosie” – AC/DC
4. “Wango Tango” – Ted Nugent
5. “When A Man Loves A Woman” – Percy Sledge
6. “I’ve Been Lovin’ You Too Long” – Otis Redding
7. “Feels Like The First Time” – Foreigner
8. “My Love Is Like A Tire Iron” – Ted Nugent
9. “Brown Sugar” – The Rolling Stones
10. “Wang Dang Sweet Poontang” – Ted Nugent

Let’s put aside the dubious nature of “Brown Sugar” being on there and focus on his pick of “The Flame,” which to me brands our favorite tough guy as a wuss, no matter how many wildebeests he kills between now and Feb. 14.

    I’m surprised he included the original version of “Wang Dang Doodle,” given that he covered it on Craveman (which I own) back in 2002.

    What an awful list. Very fitting.

    Dear Lord, “The Flame” is horrible. I’ll use math to prove it:

    (Auf Wiedersehen – The Flame) > (Superstition – I Just Called To Say I Love You)

    This is just a trick to get me to go to the Ted Nugent website, isn’t it.

    The Flame? THE FLAME? The Motherfucking FLAME? Take Cheap Tricks first four studio records and they’re 921,508 times better than THE FLAME! Everything on One On One is 149,437 times better than THE FLAME!

    Hell, ETERNAL FLAME by the Bangles is better than THE FLAME, and Eternal Flame is never to be heard in my house again, lest death come upon the occupants.

    THE FLAME? Jesus Christ, Nuge…
