The Top Ten
1 Stranglehold

Stranglehold is one of the most erotic rock songs I have ever heard. It has a hypnotic beat that hooks you, reels you in, and actually puts a stranglehold on you! You can't help but listen.

One of the best songs ever created. I used to listen to this song every night, all night. This is absolutely the best song he's ever created. If only he still wrote songs as good as this one.

A perfectly hard song that will never die. Everyone, including all the bands I know, loves this song.

2 Cat Scratch Fever

This is a great song by Ted Nugent! I grew up listening to Ted Nugent on a classic rock station and learned to appreciate his music and talent. Rock on, Ted! As someone else mentioned, this is the only Ted Nugent song I know by name, and it's my favorite by him. Long live classic rock!

Not a big fan of Ted's, but I appreciate his talent. I have different tastes in music, but I like this song and really enjoy his attitude.

I'm a baby boomer, and this is the only one I recognize by title, but I always like the song.

3 Just What the Doctor Ordered

I agree with the list that Stranglehold should be #1. However, I think Just What the Doctor Ordered should be right up there too. It is pure Uncle Ted madness. If you agree, vote for this one.

4 Free-For-All
5 Wango Tango

Really? Wango Tango behind the rest of the songs? This song is the epitome of Ted: fun, loud, and ridiculous.

6 Stormtroopin'
7 Hey Baby
8 Fred Bear

As a hunter and archer, this song resonates with me in so many ways. Although I now hunt with a Hoyt, Bear was my first bow.

Listening to this song is so epic, with all the heart and soul that Ted puts into it.

9 Snakeskin Cowboys
10 Great White Buffalo

The most underrated rock song in history. Everyone loves it, but it doesn't get its due.

The Contenders
11 Spirit of the Wild
12 Wang Dang Sweet Poontang
13 If You Can't Lick 'Em...Lick 'Em
14 Sweet Sally
15 Little Miss Dangerous
16 State of Shock
17 Scream Dream
18 Dog Eat Dog

Stranglehold. Hands down Ted's best work. I've been a Sweaty Teddy fan since the Amboy Dukes.

Nuge classic! Kamikaze from the 100th floor, swan dive to the streets.

19 Crave
20 Living in the Woods
21 Need You Bad

With all due respect to these other great tunes, this is Ted's best work and it's from his best release, "Weekend Warriors."

Full-throttle Chuck Berry rock beat all the way through. It highlights Ted's masterful use of feedback.

Catchy chorus, great rhythm, and a good solo. One of the best of several great songs on this, his best studio album.

22 Weekend Warriors
23 At Home There
24 Queen of the Forest

I saw Ted seven times between '75 and '79. Teeth-cracking killer riffs! Oh my heartbeat thriller, come traumatize my adrenal gland. She's the Queen of the Forest. Ted, throw your temper tantrum and reign over us once again!

25 Motor City Madhouse
