Bipolar and Proud is a 2004 album released by country music parodist Cledus T. Judd. The album was originally slated to be named "Cledus Gone Wild", but was changed at the last minute. This album also produced his highest chart single in "I Love NASCAR", which charted at 48 on the Hot Country Songs charts.

David Jefferies of Allmusic rated the album three-and-a-half stars out of five, saying that most of the tracks were funny, but criticizing "____ Is Funny".[1]

It is also an enhanced CD, featuring the video for the song "I Love NASCAR".
