Last week, protesters chanted, "Hey hey, ho ho, let's shut down this racist show" outside of a New Haven, Conn., music venue. Their target was Ted Nugent, the 64-year-old rock 'n' roll guitarist from Detroit whose brash demeanor and conservative views have garnered him more headlines than his music has in recent years. The protesters were upset by a column Nugent had penned for a conservative website last month about the George Zimmerman verdict. In the column, Nugent fully supported the jury's verdict and called Trayvon Martin a "17-year-old dope smoking, racist gangsta wannabe.

America, you are an idiot. You are a moocher, a zombie, soulless, mouth-breathing, ignorant, greedy, self-indulgent, envious, shallow and lazy. The foregoing is a summation of "analysis" from conservative pundits and media figures -- Cal Thomas, Ted Nugent, Bill O'Reilly, et cetera -- seeking to explain Mitt Romney's emphatic defeat. They seem to have settled on a strategy of blaming the voters for not being smart enough or good enough to vote as they should have. Because America wasn't smart enough or good enough, say these conservatives, it shredded the Constitution, bear-hugged chaos, French-kissed socialism, and died.

It's hard to know for sure if legendary wild-man rocker Ted Nugent set a new world's record for offending the widest array of people at the Maryland State Fair in Timonium the other night. But if he didn't, it sure wasn't from a lack of effort. Let's see, during the course of a nearly two-hour concert under threatening skies, the famously right-wing, pro-hunting, heavy-metal guitar wizard managed to take shots at, among others: PETA, vegetarians, hippies, smokers, tobacco-chewers, Bill and Hillary Clinton, Jesse Jackson, gun-control advocates and country music fans.

Summertime is the season to thumb your nose at the Who's famous line: "Hope I die before I get old." That quip has long since passed into folklore, as more classic rockers than ever pour into amphitheaters, trying to revive past glories and prove their music isn't just a passing fad. Rockers from the '60s, '70s, '80s and early '90s - the spectrum of classic rock as defined by radio - are playing to a cadre of new and established fans, while performing the...

For some people, waking up with ringing ears is an annoyance. For me, though, anything that interferes with my hearing also interferes with my work. Which is why I haven't been to a rock concert without earplugs in over a decade.Nor am I the only one wearing them. Look around next time you're at a show, and you'll probably notice that virtually everyone who works at the venue is wearing earplugs. (Shouldn't that tell you something?) Moreover, a fair number of rockers themselves keep plugged up while on stage, including big-name hard rockers like Ted Nugent (who for years only wore one plug, and now is partially deaf in the exposed ear)

Baltimore radio personality Bob Lopez, an iconoclastic newsman and talk-show host at 98 Rock (WIYY-FM) for 27 years and member of its popular Kirk, Mark & Lopez morning team, died of lung cancer yesterday at Gilchrist Center for Hospice Care. He was 52. Mr. Lopez, who preferred to be called by his last name, had first informed the station's listeners of his illness in an on-air interview from a hospital bed 14 months ago. He had since undergone chemotherapy and other treatment while continuing to take part in the morning show -- often using his illness as a source of humor -- when his health permitted.

On a crisp morning with the stars still visible pinpricks in an ever-brightening sky, the sleepy hunter climbs eight steps to the stand. A breeze blows through the trees, but thankfully there's not a hint of bad weather. A mental checklist is part of settling in: hot coffee, plastic-wrapped cheese Danish, hooded sweatshirt, bedroom slippers. Bedroom slippers on a deer hunt? It's easy when you're stalking prey in your guest room. That's the reality of computer hunting, where the crackling camp fire is replaced by the antiseptic glow of the video screen, bagging a trophy animal doesn't require messing with the innards and indoor plumbing is just steps away.

Call it trickle-down politics. The culture wars that have raged across our fair land for years now have moved from the highbrow realms of think tanks, religion and academia to new battlegrounds: the concert hall, the movie theater, even the auto showroom. Welcome to the pop culture wars of 2004. In this fiery summer of Fahrenheit 9 / 11 and the political conventions, it seems, once-simple consumer choices like the music we listen to, the books we read, the TV shows we watch, even the food we eat have become political statements.

EVEN THOUGH thousands of bikers will descend on Pimlico Race Course tomorrow for a three-day festival, I wouldn't lock up the women and children and call the cops just yet. No, what's being billed as the Harley-Davidson Open Road Tour, a modern corporate extravaganza of music and merchandising, probably won't feature your traditional outlaw biker pastimes, your drinking and brawling, your groping and pillaging. We're not exactly talking Altamont here, friends. This'll be more like Geezer- mont.
