Steel Panther



First off, for the moment, don't expect any updates next week. I should be able to get Sunday's post out (Albeit with autopost/non-moderated comments.) but I don't think I'l be able to get any more written up. The good news, however is that pending on if I can find a job or not, I'm going to try to go back to daily posts starting on May 2nd or 3rd. Even without a job, I'll be taking summer classes, which cram an entire semester into less than a month, but I'm only going for one class/month so I don't believe it'll interfere with my blogging.

Anywho, on to today's band. I figured I'd wrap up my comedy-themed week with Steel Panther. (I really wanted to go with Richard Cheese, but I've already covered him.) Steel Panther is a spoof of 80's glam metal bands. They have released three studio albums, one of which I haven't been able to track down. (Hey, That's What I Call Sludge! Vol. 1) For obvious reasons, I won't be covering that album.

Their first album, Hole Patrol, was first released in 2003, when the band went by Metal Skool. It was then re-released in 2005 with a few changes. I don't believe there are any changes in this song, Stripper Girl, between the two releases.




The next album of theirs that I have is Feel The Steel. This is the opening track, Death To All But Metal.




Finally, since I'm only covering two albums, I figured I'd post two songs from Feel The Steel. This is Comunity Property.

  2. I know these guys are a parody band (and a seemingly good one at that), but they sure as hell sound like Poison and Warrant had a hairspray baby...
