Scream Dream is the sixth studio album by American hard rock guitarist and singer-songwriter Ted Nugent, released by Epic Records in 1980. A live performance of "Scream Dream" has appeared on the TV show Fridays.

The album-opening "Wango Tango" became an instant Nugent standard, including a humorous middle breakdown section in which he shows off with a carnival barker-esque rap. Other highlights include "Terminus El Dorado", the title track, and "Hard as Nails".

Tracks "Wango Tango" and "Scream Dream" were later included in the compilation album Playlist: The Very Best of Ted Nugent.[4]
