Steel Panther


These guys are awesome. I don't do a lot of music reviews, but the story here is great. A bunch of over 40 dudes totally kicking ass. Their style of music is the big arena 80's sound of Motley Crew, Van Halen and Def Leppard. The difference being they are a bit of a joke, a lampoon perhaps. A satire?

Can you really satirize a music genre that did so much to become a joke all by itself? Like if I walked around with huge metal teeth spitting rap lyrics would I be making fun? No, I'd be paying tribute to an image and sound that I enjoyed.

That's what these guys are doing. Also their lyrics are fun and hilarious.

Check them out on you tube.
