Steel Panther Releases Video, Takes Shots At Pop Stars

Band Photo: Steel Panther (?)

Hollywood hair metal dreamers Steel Panther have launched an all out attack on the pop mainstream with their newest video “Death to All But Metal”. Asserting their alpha male dominance with plenty of hairspray, spandex, and sick stage moves, Steel Panther have taken shots against anyone NOT flying the hair metal flag. Kanye West, Madonna, and 50-Cent are among the superstars targeted by lead singer Michael Starr’s wrath in the clip.

“Death to All But Metal” is an homage to Van Halen’s classic “Hot For Teacher” video and also features a cameo by smart mouth comedienne Sarah Silverman as the school principal.

Steel Panther’s new album, Feel The Steel, hits stores on 6/9/2009.

Disregarding the ludicrous nature of a hair metal band singing "Death To All But Metal", the butt metal bit was funny.

Cynic: These guys are the "house band" at a comedy club in LA. They are funny guys. I saw one show where the bass player lost his wig. It's all part of their act, but seriously. The lyrics to this song crack me up. "Why do all my lyrics sound like Dr. Seuss?". LOL.

Steel Panther is disgusting. The way they degrade women is horrible. It is not funny in the least. I can't believe people actually pay to see such crap. I guess that just proves that people are just plain stupid.

I have lost all respect for Ralph Saenz, who by the way got fat and looks horrible in those blue tight pants.. Doesn't this band realize that the females in the audience may just be offended by their constant foul language and degradation of women. Why can't you guys just play the songs all the way through and refrain from bad-mouthing women. You guys don't deserve to be paid for what you're doing. It just isn't funny. Have some self-respect and some respect for women!

How do they usually degrade women? I am myself a female, but am oblivious to about 99% of things around me. Being ignorant is so cool. :P Yeah I can see your point about the video, but it's just meant to be funny. Does anyone actually take these a$$holes seriously? lol

Holly Ryan: I noticed you stepped up to the plate for women, but what about men? They degraded men in this video as well. Is that acceptable in your eyes? Honestly, I really don't give a fvck because it's comedy. However, if your going to wave your flag at least be consistent. BTW, it's called a sense of humor. You should try it sometime. It's a lot of fun!

Hey AP, calm down, she wasn't being too harsh, so don't go calling her some "feminazi." As a feminist myself, I hate that term being used on anyone. It's usually used from a certain ignorance about feminism.

PS Feminazis = gender feminists, not equity feminists. Holly wasn't saying anything that'd suggest she's a gen-fem.

IN: Let's not beleagure the fact these women volunteered their services for the video. I'm pretty sure they knew what they were getting into beforehand. Same thing with porn. The women get paid more and do less work. Therefore it raises the question: How are they exploited?

I've not agreed to the possibility that they were exploited. Exploiting someone means abusing their services or skills, in my idea. Their services and skills were not abused because they perfectly knew what's what. What I was saying is that due to the modern ignorance on feminism, people throw around words to bring a negative perception of it about.
