Wacky Ted Nugent Keeps Whining About Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Exclusion

Wacky rocker Ted Nugent, a Redford native aka the Motor City Madman, thinks he's great. He'll tell you if you want to know.

But not everyone shares that opinion, so the 69-year-old whines again that the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame bypasses him.

BJ Colangelo of Metro Times writes:

Everyone's favorite racist uncle, Ted Nugent, is back to whining about not being inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, blaming liberals and leftists for his lack of consideration, and not because, with the exception of Damn Yankee's "High Enough," he's a mediocre musician at best. ("Cat Scratch Fever" sucks. There, I said it.)

According to Ultimate Classic Rock, he claimed: "there was no human being alive who didn’t think he should receive the honor."

As a human being who is very much alive, I will personally call his claim bullshit.

Nugent has been eligible for inductions since 2000 but said last year that "political correctness" was the reason for the continued snub, which I'll also call bullshit on because the Confederate flag-clad Lynyrd Skynyrd was inducted in 2006. Ol' Uncle Ted also thinks that his membership in the NRA is responsible for his "snub," and claimed in 2011 that his exclusion is an “embarrassing denial of historical and current truth and evidence.”

In an interview with My Global Mind,  he says: 

“Would like you to find a human being…and believe them when they say Ted Nugent should not be in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame? I would love to witness that exchange. You would see a person almost melt with guilt because you know they are lying. At the end of the day, it's not about me – it's about the music. James Hetfield said it best when Metallica was inducted: ‘Ted Nugent not being in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame is a joke. Ted Nugent is rock and roll’.”
