80’s Rockers Steel Panther Reacts to Classic Heavy Metal Videos
Loudwire posted a video of 80’s Rockers Steel Panther reacting to some legendary heavy metal videos. Featuring vocalist Michael Starr and guitarist Satchel the duo discuss David Lee Roth’s “Yankee Rose”, Poison’s “Unskinny Bop.” Check it out below!
The band recently released their latest album “Heavy Metal Rules” in late September and it’s received lukewarm reviews. NME roasted the record saying the following about the group
The main thing about Steel Panther is that they’re not funny. For a parody metal group, that’s less than ideal. The American band have been telling the same joke for 10 years – since their 2009 debut ‘Feel The Steel’ – and, if you’re sitting comfortably, it goes a little like this.
They’re four dudes who look and sound like an LA hair metal band from the ’80s, right, but (and here comes the punchline) they’re doing it today. The gag involves dumb guitar riffs and even dumber lyrics about sex, babes and metal. Gleeful misogyny is built into the routine and their earlier work also boasted flourishes of racism and homophobia. Ladies and gentlemen: this is incel rock.
If you have never had sex, you might like this album. If you enjoyed Steel Panther’s single joke 10 years ago and thought, “I believe that I would enjoy hearing a slightly more apologetic version of this joke a decade down the line,” you might like this album. It’s only got one star because the NME content management system doesn’t currently support 0 stars.
