I think Chank summed it up best: "anti-authority does not equal libertarian."

Queensrÿche's lead singer was given The World's Smallest Political Quiz after a concert in Louisiana and scored Libertarian on it.  (This actually made the lp.org news page some time back.)  Their music certainly demonstrates a certain lack of faith in authority, particularly on their concept album Operation: Mindcrime.

Tom Morello regularly wears a hat that says, quite plainly, 'commie'.  He and Zack de la Rocha have demonstrated through lyrics and advocacy that they are democratic socialists, i.e. want strong civil liberties, but want the government to run roughshod over the corporations and the wealthy.  The bassist is certainly left-leaning.  The drummer usually keeps fairly quiet about politics.

Ted Nugent and the Damn Yankees!

Ted Nugent is totally NOT libertarian....  I used to think that too.  It turns out his pro-freedom stance starts and ends with guns....  I'll look for a link...  It's been awhile.

He's far more libertarian than most any other guy on TV, especially VH1

No he's not.  He's often vague about what he means by "freedom" so it's easy to project libertarianism onto him if you want to but really......  guns..... that's it.

Sure but gun rights happen to be the core rights you need for a free state.  So at least he's pushing for more gun freedom, which will help discourage the government from going gestapo on us.

Well yeah guns are good.  I'm glad he's out there pushing the gun thing.  Although I don't know if he really helps the anti-gun control crowd.  He's fucking crazy.  I can't picture a gun-control advocate being turned to the NRA by Ted Nugent.  Existing gun fans like Nugent.  Gun haters probably hold him up as the poster boy for why guns are scary.  Example....

"You want to know how to get peace, love and understanding?" he replies. "Who doesn't know this? The Ku-Klux-Klan? The Black Panthers? Child rapists? How do you get peace, love and understanding? First of all you have to find all the bad people. Then," Nugent adds, "you kill them."

Add some of his quotes about muslims, homosexuals, and drug users and you can paint a pretty scary picture.

"We need to tell the pimps and whores and welfare brats and the drug abusers and drug sellers and drug growers… Tell these bloodsucking pigs to either get a job or get the hell out of our way because we are about fed up with giving them a handout for being rotten and bloodsucking. If we had that policy all along then these sons of bitches on 9/11 would have had their guts handed to them because we would have profiled them and responded to the intelligence that they were American hating monsters. We need policy that says if you hate America then you have 24 hours to get out or we will kill you. Case closed."

I think I probably fall under his neo-con definition of "hate America".
