The glory days of metal come alive once again with Steel Panther. The band is touring in support of its new album, All You Can Eat, arriving April 1. With songs like “Gloryhole,” “Pussywhipped,” “Bukkake Tears” and “Gangbang At The Old Folks Home” the band clearly shows where it is coming from and it isn’t the world of Simon & Garfunkel. For one thing, Amazon.com doesn’t asterisk-out parts of song titles on Paul & Art’s albums.
Featuring Michael Starr on vocals, Satchel on guitar, bassist Lexxi Foxx, and Stix Zadinia on drums, Steel Panther’s recently released video for “Party Like Tomorrow Is the End Of The World” was directed by “Daily Show” contributor Rob Riggle who also worked on the “21 Jump Street” movie and “The Other Guys” film. “The Burden Of Being Wonderful” was directed by the writer and producer of “Family Guy” and “The Cleveland Show,” Kirker Butler.
Because the video for “Party Like Tomorrow Is The End Of The World” doesn’t waste time delving into some of the more decadent of the genre’s traditions/stereotypes, we’ll just give you the link and you can hassle with YouTube’s attempts to have only mature audiences view the piece. However, the video for “The Burden Of Being Wonderful” is safe for the masses.
