TedNugentbuffalo In celebration of all the grilling and outdoor cooking that will be happening all over the U.S. this Fourth of July, multi-platinum guitar icon Ted Nugent has unleashed another track–appropriately titled, I Love My BBQ, from his upcoming album, SHUTUP&JAM!, out July 8th on Frontiers Records.

Listen to I Love My BBQ below.

SHUTUP&JAM! marks the first all-new studio album from the Motor City Madman in seven years. Nugent leads the pack of renowned musicians, handling guitar and vocal duties, alongside bassist Greg Smith, drummer Mick Brown and longtime musical cohort guitarist/vocalist Derek St. Holmes. Special guest Sammy Hagar brings his vocal power to the lead single, She’s Gone, for an epic lead vocal duet with Nugent. The song also features a special performance from one of the most respected drummers in rock, Johnny “Bee” Badanjek of the legendary Detroit band Mitch Ryder & The Detroit Wheels. She’s Gone is available for free on iTunes for fans who pre-order the album there (for those who don’t know, this means the song will automatically download to their iTunes once they complete the pre-order purchase).

SHUTUP&JAM! is available now for pre-order at Amazon and iTunes. In the U.S., fans can pick up a special edition of SHUTUP&JAM!–featuring the exclusive bonus track Johnny B. Goode Forever–only at Best Buy starting July 8th.

To coincide with the release of SHUTUP&JAM!, TED kicks off his national headlining tour today (7/3) in Wichita Falls, TX (full tour itinerary below). Ticket info for all shows is available at

  1. OH MY GOD! IS HE SERIOUS! How the Hell could he go from “Stranglehold” in 1975 to “I Love My BBQ” in 2014? Did he fall out of a tree stand and hit his head on every branch on the way down? I think Ted has finally lost touch with reality. It’s so bad of a song that I don’t know whether to laugh or be pissed off. If this steaming pile doesn’t win every year end pole for worst song, then that’s the clear sign of the apocalypse, boys and girls.

  2. The demographic of god fearing, bible toting, red neck, right wing, bbq loving, beer swilling, ultra-patriots will eat this up. It’s really too bad, Ted is a great classic guitar player.

    I like a good BBQ, but think Ted should shut up. You know, the “Polack” reference at 2:09 is stupid, but then so is Ted. It’s an ethnic slur. People from Poland are called Poles.

  3. Okay this is just a sad sad piece of something!!! Ted needs to have his head checked!! Worst song to come out this year by far!! My drunk of an uncle sings like this when he’s hungry

  4. Resembles a tune that you would hear in a commercial. Cheesy as it gets. I know Ted is just having, so I dont take him serious whether it’s his new music or spouting political BS from that deranged mind of his.

  5. Wow…this is just terrible…I cant believe ted could sit there with a straight face and tell u he likes this song…the only thing worse is dropping $17 or $18 to buy the cd…almost makes the case for downloading music..

  6. I agree not as catchy as the recently released “She’s Gone.” But still catchy with some humor and Tedacious guitar in the middle. Let’s face it, there is a certain faction, that even if Ted came up with a modern day “Stairway to Heaven,” would get upset because it doesn’t respect the separation of Church and state (it mentions “heaven;” get it? I kill me). Oh, I forgot, liberals have no sense of humor. Lighten up and stoke up the barbie this holiday weekend!
    I am looking forward to buying his new album this Tuesday…

  7. I like Jones’ comment… playing Sheridan Wyoming and that supper club off the 101 in Agoura Hills is reason to dump lots of A-1 on the burnt steak but lord have mercy he’s still like ’79 onstage.
