State of Shock is the fifth solo album by the American hard rock guitarist Ted Nugent. It closed a decade in which Nugent took his hard-rocking wildman persona to the top of the charts. The best known track remains the album opener “Paralyzed”, which was performed live on a 1980 episode of the TV show Friday. “Paralyzed,” “Snake Charmer,” and “It Don’t Matter” are electrifying, with razor-sharp guitar. A true must have album.
