Weekend Warriors is the fourth studio album by American hard rock guitarist Ted Nugent, released in 1978.

It was the first Ted Nugent album not to feature Derek St. Holmes until Nugent in 1982. Instead, Charlie Huhn, the new guitarist for Nugent, performed on the album and several other albums until Holmes returned.

The front sleeve-art was by British artist Jeff Cummins and was originally commissioned by Oui magazine, to accompany an interview with Nugent. Nugent liked what he saw and the artwork was recommissioned by CBS, with additional work being carried out for use as the album sleeve.

Although the album was a success, it contains few songs that have become concert or radio standards.


Rock station WRIF in Detroit, Michigan used the song "Weekend Warriors" to kick off the start of the weekend at 6:00 PM, which was usually preceded by former DJ Arthur Penhallow proclaiming "It's the weekend!" Similarly, rock station WKTG in Madisonville, Kentucky used to use "Weekend Warriors" every Friday at 5:00 PM to start the weekend. However, the song has not been used recently, as it has been replaced by Loverboy's "Working for the Weekend".
