When Steel Panther first arrived on the scene I just automatically gave then a wide berth. I never gave them a chance at all. I’m not a big fan of people taking the piss when it comes to the music I love, that’s the Gene Simmons in me. Then I heard them…… fucking hell, what a great band, song writing, riffs, hooks and solo’s all over the place. They are probably 3 times as good a the hair metal 80’s bands that actually take themselves seriously. What I love about Steel Panther is that they can play all these brilliant catchy 80’s metal songs and still be completely politically incorrect and totally sif about everything. So far from being a contrived management Baby Metal type creation they actually believe that everything is about banging chicks, partying, gobbling drugs and getting smashed. if they are faking sincerity then they should get an Oscar. Please don’t make the same mistake I did and miss out on this band, if you dug 80’s hair metal, Motley Crue, Ratt, Poison, Dokken etc. then you can’t not like Steel Panther. Oh and go right to the end where Mike Starr talks to the teacher about butt metal, it is hysterical and this video is NSFW, you have been warned. And this has to be played LOUD.
