* CrossesTheLineTwice: Constantly, of course, but crossed it at least three more times during his 2014 appearance on ''Series/ThatMetalShow''. Talk turned to drugs, and as Ted was yelling about how stupid everyone who uses drugs is, he says, to get his point across, "Wanna go see the new Creator/PhilipSeymourHoffman movie?" This was aired very shortly after Hoffman's 2014 death from a drug overdose. The audience murmurs "Oooh..." and all three of the hosts force smiles that are ''very'' uncomfortable looking. Yikes.



* NeverLiveItDown: Defecating in his pants to avoid being drafted for UsefulNotes/TheVietnamWar.
* OvershadowedByControversy: Nugent has become better known for his far-right political views, than for his music.



* WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs:
** Ted Nugent is notoriously straight-edge and by his own estimation has had ''three or four beers'' in his entire life.
--->'''Nugent:''' Anybody who wants to get mellow can turn around and get the fuck outta here!
** He was famously unaware, or claimed to be unaware, that the epic Psychedelic-riff-gasm that is "Journey to the Center of the Mind" was about drug use. He reiterated this claim when he appeared on ''Series/ThatMetalShow'' in 2014.

* [[HilariousInHindsight Hilarious]][=/=]HarsherInHindsight: Depending on your point of view, it's either hilarious or horrible that this happened. Ted said "If [[UsefulNotes/BarackObama Obama]] wins I'll either be dead or in jail," he has yet to be dead or in jail.
