For this song, Seger was inspired by Jane Fonda, and her famous strut in the movie Barbarella. (thanks, Stephanie - Denver, CO)

In 1989-1990 NWA/WCW, the manager Woman (Nancy Daus-Sullivan Benoit- RIP) used this as her entrance music.

I seriously doubt the song has anything to do with Jane Fonda or the Vietnam War. That war was long over in 1980 when Seger released the song. I think its just a song about a dancer--a frequent Seger subject.

One of Bob Seger's best songs.

Her Strut is a recycled version of Fire Down Below and Jane Fonda is a recycled Tokyo Rose. Great website,BTW

This song is actually about Jane Fonda's strut while walking up to the podium to talk about the Vietnam War at a function in Washington D.C. Seger saw her on TV. Sure wish they would get their facts straight on this Website.

I love Bob Seger, but I turn the station when this song comes on, because it was inspired by Jane Fonda and I don't approve of her actions during the Vietnam War. How Disrespectful of our troops.

I'm all for honoring young Jane Fonda's strut, but this song is annoying.

any Bob Seger song is a great song......

The chorus features a clever play on words: "They do respect her, but they love to watch her strut." In the fine tradition of mondegreens, this line is often quoted as "They do respect her butt/They love to watch her strut."

Mike Watt of the Minutemen tells the story of the song that became an Indie Rock touchstone. It's also the story of what Mike calls "The Movement."

Travis talks Rock Band, their Amory Wars storyline, and the CC song that some fair-weather fans show up for.

When he was asked to write a song for the Singles soundtrack, Mark thought the Seattle grunge scene was already overblown, so that's what he wrote about.
