Count Ted Nugent a sore loser: the vocal conservative rocker went on a disgruntled Twitter tirade after President Barack Obama locked up a second term last night. "Pimps whores & welfare brats & their soulless supporters hav a president to destroy America," Nugent wrote in the first of a storm tweets. "So Obama still demands the hardest workers provide for the nonwotkers. Shared opportunities my ass," he followed, before tweeting, "What subhuman varmint believes others must pay for their obesity booze cellphones birthcontrol abortions & lives."

Calling Americans "soulless fools," Nugent lamented the "economic & spiritual suicide" of re-electing Obama. "I cry tears of blood for The Last Best Place & the warriors who died for this tragedy," he continued. He even went after the Supreme Court, writing, "So 4 SCOTUS idiots dont believe in self defense. Pure evil." It all harks back to when Nugent was questioned by the Secret Service earlier this year.

“Money For Nothing”

Dire Straits | 1984

Mark Knopfler wrote this song with Sting, and it wasn’t without controversy. The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
