Glam Metal to the max! Hair Metal personified! Comedic lyrics and parody rock-star thespians like no other. Meet 'Steel Panther'!
I swear I thought they were some kind'a SNL skit gone AWOL. I laughed my a$$ off the first time I heard these guys!
I mean seriously, just look at that pic!
I was expecting Will Ferrell to start yelling "More cowbell, more cowbell man!"

You have to watch their first two wickedly funny releases and a behind the scenes video which is also GOLD!!! Their new CD "Death to All But Metal" is due out the first week of October.

I think they sounds a bit like Quiet Riot, look like Poison, L.A. Guns, Winger, Hanoi Rocks and play a little like Mötley Crüe... or actually all of the above. Holy hair spray Batman!
Here's the band unplugged performing on a radio station.
Finally, a California glam metal (parody) band that knows their true place in music. On the comedy circuit tour and providing material for late night TV. Wow, did I just describe the Crüe!
