Tictoc is but a troll. It's all he's ever been. I've had him on my ignore list for a long time now, I suggest everyone to block him. He hasn't contributed anything to this community.

incredible band.

anyone who thinks the guys are con-artists are plain ****ing stooopid.

I met them and they were great guys, spoke about music-they really know their stuff.

Satchel is a genius-defo the brains of the operation musically. They're all very intelligent fellas.

One of the best gigs I've been to was their show in 2012.

Haha, oh Christ. How pitifully deluded are you people?

Steel Panther are made up of actors. It's a comedy troupe ffs. I have no doubt that they are also decent musicians but live they cover up a lot with backing tracks and the lead singer mimes more often than not.

E.g, look at this video - The singer isn't even in time with the vocal track. He's too busy trying to look funny. There's also videos where the guitarist solos, drops his guitar and the solo keeps playing on.

Deal with it instead of acting like little fan girls.

Uh, that's not really about beating your girlfriend, it's a parody of a "rock star behaviour". And even then, it's at best (or worst) threathning with violence, not about beating your girlfriend.

I wouldn't take the lyrics that seriously, it's all about parody, taking the cliche's and amping them to the max.

They're all excellent musicians. Satchel (aka Russ Parrish) is one of the best guitarists around. He was a teacher(!) at the GIT and has written with Paul Gilbert and toured with Rob Halford for example. Michael Starr (aka Ralph Saenz) sang with LA Guns, and the other guys have been around the block as well.

They can really play and sing, and even though the stage show and most of the raps are pre-planned, it's still hell of a show.

Oh don't worry I dont take it seriously, but I dont find it particularly funny either. There are some good songs on that album (Tomorrow Night being the best of them) but there are some pretty terrible ones too (Critter, Let Me Come In, Why Don't you trust me, Thats What Girls Are For). Overall its just not a great album

Seems like you like the ones where they make fun of themselves, and dislike the ones where they act like schauvinist rock stars. I think the first album is better, but I still like all the songs you mentioned.

Love this band. Apparently, apart from Michael Starr, the rest of the band wear wigs. Dunno how true this is.

Feel the Steel is probably the best album as I feel it's more consistent, whereas Balls Out has some great songs but more filler. For some reason my favourite track on Balls Out is "Just Like Tiger Woods". It's not the most in-your-face Panther song but its just loaded with hooks and I love the guitar work on it. Maybe it's the more melodic side of it I like the most.

I saw them live in 2011 supporting Mötley Crüe and Def Leppard in Wembley Arena and naturally it was a great show. They really own the stage. Should pick up their live Blu Ray soon.

It's true, you can find pictures of them pretty easily.
