Uh-oh, Ted Nugent, looks like David Crosby has you in a stranglehold of social-media ownage.

Crosby lambasted the conservative musician on Monday, tearing into the Motor City Madman’s claim that he hadn’t yet been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame because of his political stances.

Responding to a tweet asking Crosby, “Ted Nugent recently said political correctness is keeping him out of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame … do you agree?” Crosby fired back, “No the a–hole just isn’t good enough.”

Crosby later doubled down on his criticism of Nugent, when he was asked if Nugent’s signature song, “Cat Scratch Fever,” wasn’t good enough to earn Nugent a place in the Hall of Fame.

“Nope,” Crosby bluntly assessed.

Crosby would presumably know something about what it takes to get into the Hall of Fame; he’s been inducted twice, for his work with the Byrds and Crosby Stills & Nash.

During an interview with Albany, New York radio station Q103, Nugent opined that political correctness had prevented his entry into the Hall of Fame.

“Jann Wenner, the founder of Rolling Stone and the Boss Hog at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, he hates freedom. He hates the Second Amendment. he hates me because I’m the board of directors, quite proudly … of the National Rifle Association.,” Nugent weighed in. “I’m on the board of directors of the NRA, Jann Wenner hates the Second Amendment, so that’s the only reason I’m not in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.”
