I had known that Ted Nugent's politics were on the right side of the road. But I hadn't known that about Megadeth. Nor would I ever have guessed. Interesting.

I wonder what other well-known musicians are "in the closet" politically (so to speak)?

Manowar seem tight-lipped about their politics, even when pressed by interviewers; but their "Warriors of the World" CD may be an example of where they stand:

Track 2, "The Fight for Freedom", is dedicated to "those whom we lost on September 11, 2001 and for their families, a day we will never forgive or forget." Lyrics are here: www.lyricsdir.com/manowar-the-fight-for-freedom-lyrics.html.

They're one of the best examples of "symphonic metal." Much of their material consists of rowsing anthems and battle hymns, typically based on Norse sagas and similar heroic mythology. Vocals are "clean" (as opposed to "death growls").
