Not to be confused with the 1993 progressive house track "Intensities In-Ten-Cities" from Glasgow producer/DJ duo Slam.

Intensities in 10 Cities is the second live album by the American guitarist Ted Nugent, released in 1981 and consisting of ten songs recorded supposedly during the last ten dates of Nugent's 1980 tour.

The album was ranked at number 9 on Guitar World's list of the "Top 10 Live Albums."[3]

The ten cities were claimed to be:
