Nugent Blasts Green Day

Rocker TED NUGENT has blasted punk trio GREEN DAY after they turned down an offer to work with the CAT SCRATCH FEVER star. Nugent reveals he approached Green Day frontman BILLIE JOE ARMSTRONG with a view to working with the AMERICAN IDIOT singer but he simply "laughed" at the idea. Now angry Nugent, a fervent Republican, rants, "Their social ignorance, their historical vacuity and their knee-jerk condemnation of American things and the BUSH administration is nothing short of embarrassing." But Nugent isn't giving up on the trio: "I bought all their CDs... I would be more than happy to talk to them."

We should all take notice of Ted Nugent and realise that he speaks for truth and honesty. He has the best interest of the youth of America at the very core of his principles, and does not take issues that affect all our lives, lightly. His arguments are lucid and well researched, he employs an impeccable use of the English-yes, English language and recognises that it's use is a mighty weapon when utilised in the pursuance of intellectual endeavour.Education is the answer to ignorance. Pragmatism is the key to understanding, not pseudoscience.Carl Sagan is unfortunately no longer here to guide you, try to understand the message that Ted Nugent risks many things to altruistically deliver to you.

Yeah, Billie Joe likes music, but admit it people... there is just something comedic about Ted Nugent. Have you seen the guys house? Anyway, why is he so damn touchy? I say Mr. Ted Nugent should suck it up and quit being a baby. He just laughed. For god sakes...-Bex

Interesting that Green Day supporters' comments, so far, have come only from the barely literate. Long live the Amboy Dukes.

Green Day is the best band out there and Billie Joe is the best front man I have ever seen and heard in my life. They have the best music out they're, and just because you people are jelous doesnt mean you can bash them like that, So what if they dislike Bush a lot of people do its their own opinions and I think everyone should respect that. Besides I havent seen a lot of people go out and voice their opinions about what they think about politics or other stuff, they just go out and bash other people's opinions like your doing right now to Green Day. Green Day seems to be the only band who is not scared to voice their own opinions. Also if your calling Green Day bad people because they dislike Bush that means your saying that other people who dislike Bush are bad too. So all you people who are bashing Green Day out there I think you all should think twice before you say anything. -Tami H

How dare you get mad at Green Day just because their standing up for what they believe in. I know adults could care less what a 13 year old school girl says, but this is going too far. America is supposed to be a place that you can voice your opinion and not get hit in the head with a bullet. Green Day has there opinions and they stand up for them like any American would. American's are becoming such hypocrites, everyone is contradicting the constitution and it's values. Leave Green Day alone Ted nugent, they have their rights to freedom of speech too.

wow...and how many people really give a sh*t about what Ted Nugent thinks...show of hands...yeah I thought so. Sounds like Nugent's trying to get his name back in the news by hitching himself to Green Day's wagon without having to go through all the work of actually making good music. Go back on your meds, Ted. You still suck and your political views reflect blind allegiance to a political party instead of what's best for the nation. That isn't patriotism. So don't crack on someone for having the balls to tell the truth about the state of the nation.

I really think that poor Ted just wants some attention. I dont know what the f*ck he was thinking wanting to mix their music together. That would have been awful. I hope some Ted Nugent fans come to his defense because the poor guy needs it. All I've seen so far is Green Day fans denying that Billie Joe would laugh at him and I completely back that up. It makes me sort of upset that Ted would call those wonderful musicians socially ignorant when that is so far from the truth. This is not the time to go up against Green Day, at the peak of their career. Nobody will give a s**t.
