Amped up on sex, survival and six-string shredding, the 31st recording from the Nuge is as raw and alive as his early classics. Ted stays true to form and Craveman stays loud and fierce. Some say lyrically offensive, others say powerful - either way, this is classic Ted.

The Great Spirit roars on in that not so quiet American night my friends & like Brother wolf, my subterranean R & B throttletorque infested Gibson Byrdland glows & growls life anew! The road less humped calls my feed-backing name nonstop as if the mystical garageband door has once again been slammed down hard on the ballz of our fire breathing punk Nuge ultragreazyass rock-n-roll Motorcity Musclecar orgy, & all is well at the Rosa Parks Soul of Man attitude celebration BBQ campfire. Defiance is dancing raw & naked as we laugh ferociously in the face of average everything. Our inexhaustible quest for sonic bombastardized rhythm perfection fuels the American Dream as if it has never missed a beat, and the good, bad, & ugly continue to inspire us no end. A gargantuan BloodBrother salute penetrates &suckerpunches the stormcloud thunder-clap & we giddyup the lightning home like the pissed off crazy horse stallions we are. Let the Big Dogs run. Kill it & Grill it. God, Guns & Rock-n-Roll. I am gunpowder boy, craveman, Thundergod of attitude. As close to heaven as she gets. Almost pussy. Profile me. – Ted Nugent
