Songfacts®:

  • The acronym is the polite title of this song; the TN stands for Ted Nugent, and the F stands for, well, let's just say Goldfinger are not admirers!

    "TFN" was written by lead vocalist/rhythm guitarist John Feldmann. Running to around 2 minutes it is track 15 on the 2002 Open Your Eyes album.
  • The reference to "killing little squirrels" dates to 1974 when Nugent won the National Squirrel Shooting Archery Contest. The song also disparages "Jennifur" Lopez who as well as wearing fur likes to eat "dead cow." Boy, these guys really have a beef with meat eaters. >>
