Little Miss Dangerous is the ninth studio album by American hard rock guitarist Ted Nugent. The album was released in March 1986, by Atlantic Records.

Contents

The single "Little Miss Dangerous" was Ted Nugent's most successful single in Australia. This is mostly because the track was featured in an episode of the same name of the American television series Miami Vice . The track "Angry Young Man" was also used in an episode of Miami Vice entitled "Definitely Miami", in which Nugent guest-starred as a pimp/drug dealer and was killed in a shoot-out with Sonny Crockett (Don Johnson).

A promotional video clip was produced for the song "Little Miss Dangerous'".
