TED NUGENT On Songwriting: “I Don’t Compose Songs, I Ejaculate Them”

Ted Nugent's forthcoming studio album, "Detroit Muscle", arrives on April 29, 2022.

The “Motor-City Madman” recently sat down for an interview with “The Jeremy White Show“, and spoke about his musical creation process. He said (as transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET): “I am consumed with the creative process, but with me, it’s really not a process.

“People always ask me, ‘So, how do you go about writing a song?’ And let me clarify: I’ve never ‘written’ a song; I’ve never sat down with pen and paper,” he explained. “I always have a guitar handy. I play my guitar every day. And I don’t write songs, I don’t compose songs — I ejaculate them. I play my guitar and my hands find their home on the guitar… I’m a musical monster. I grab the guitar and shit explodes, flames come out of my ass because I am so pure. I have no baggage. I have no inhibitions.

“The best shit in life happens spontaneously when your instincts cause an occurrence,” Ted added. “That’s the best way to describe my songs. And I know some of my songs — ‘Wango Tango’ and some of the songs — are fun and cute and silly and crazy, but they’re performed as if it’s the lifeblood soundtrack.”

Ted released the official lyric video for his new song “Come And Take It” last month which is set to appear on Nugent’s forthcoming studio album, “Detroit Muscle”, which arrives on April 29, 2022 via Pavement Music.
