PiercingMetal Thoughts: Having seen Steel Panther for many years at this point I can honestly say that I still enjoy myself at their shows, even if some of the jokes are the same locker room ones that have been recycled and morphed ever so slightly depending on the situation the band finds themselves in. Yet with that being said the band is clearly NOT for everyone. Today, our world finds itself offended at everything and the slightest affront forces changes upon the masses. No one seems to know how to take a joke anymore and everything, absolutely everything must be totally politically correct. If you are one of those masses who is startled at the slightest cuss word I encourage you to go to a Steel Panther gig and get your comeuppance. If the idea of an over-sexualized stage presentation makes you head to the confessional, then I also encourage you to go to a Steel Panther show for a swat on the keister that you will not soon forget. I’m joking of course and not about the treatment, and instead more about your type hitting one of these rip-roaringly fun shows. If you can’t take a joke, stay at home and yell at people on Facebook. Find your inner Keyboard Warrior, it’s all the rage today. What do the rest of you think about this round of tour dates? Are we partying or what? Chime in down below.

“Sexy Santa” (Single) by Steel Panther

Artist: Steel Panther
Title: “Sexy Santa” (Single)
Label: Universal Music
Release Date: 11/23/2009
Genre: Hard Rock
Rating: 4/5

With Christmas right around the corner I found myself looking for some other seasonal tracks to discuss and I was feeling like someone who should be on the naughty list when I realized that I had never before heard the Steel Panther original track “Sexy Santa”. It surprised me since I have been following the band since the release of their debut album “Feel The Steel” back in 2009 but with this kind of specialty tune its better late than never. Now, check those stockings at the mantelpiece and listen to my thoughts err read my thoughts about the “Sexy Santa” single by the Glam Rockers.

“She’s Tight” (Single) by Steel Panther

Artist: Steel Panther
Title: “She’s Tight” (Single)
Label: Universal Music
Release Date: 9/29/2016
Genre: Hard Rock
Rating: 4/5

This is a pretty easy one to do because for as long as I can remember I have been a fan of the band Cheap Trick and one of the songs that I have always enjoyed was the number “She’s Tight” which comes from their “One On One” album. It had a fun video that I used to catch way back in the day on the still relatively new MTV station (when I went to the friend’s house who had the station of course). Now this little summary is not about the band from Rockford but is instead steering focus to those Glam Rock scoundrels in Steel Panther who have just released their own take on the tune. Let’s discuss.

Judas Priest @ Barclays Center (10/9/2014)

Logo - Judas Priest

Artist: Judas Priest
Venue: The Barclays Center (Brooklyn, NY)
Opener: Steel Panther
Date: 10/9/2014
Label: Legacy Recordings

As excited as I was to be able to see Judas Priest this evening for what amounted to the very first time in Brooklyn, I was exhausted. You see today was the beginning of the 2014 NY Comic Con at the Javits Center and I’ve been attending that for the past few years bringing all its wild colors and diverse activity to the masses on the once side presence to my website “PiercingMetal Musings”. This year the event falls right into my main content based on all the changes I have put into place but that is a tale for another already posted narrative. After inhaling what I felt was the biggest soft pretzel I had ever seen I headed over to the Barclays Center in Downtown Brooklyn and believe it or not this was going to be my first ever time at the arena. The Priest was on their “Redeemer Of Souls” tour and had only one support band with them on the run by way of the raucous rockers Steel Panther. Here is how the night went down for those who might have missed out.

CD - Judas Priest - Redeemer Of Souls

Steel Panther: So I’ve enjoyed the presentation that Steel Panther has been putting out there for I think about five or six years now and I always find their shows to be nothing less than a gut busting experience. They’ve headlined shows out here at either the Gramercy Theatre or Irving Plaza and the audience around them is generally another interesting part of the overall spectacle. That being said I was not too certain that the diehard Judas Priest fans would “get” that this is part parody and part high energy Metal band and I felt this way from the moment that they were announced as the direct support for the new Priest tour. Some personalities lambasted this in the public press online or via the radio and magazine outlets and since I enjoyed them already I felt let’s just see how it goes even though I would have preferred a truer to the Metal band like Kamelot or even Sonata Arctica if I could point out some worthy favorites. That being said the band was exactly what I expected them to be and that was not only musically proficient, but acting like something out of a sexually charged fraternity house with their antics. Now I am used to this having seen them a number of times but I think for the most part the Priest purists were in shock by some of the banter going on and being directed at them and their wives, girlfriends and even daughters. One comment by singer Starr found me noticing some people closer to the front with their jaws dropped based on what they had just heard. My thoughts were that many were not aware of the level of comedic shtick that this band brings to the table. Set wise they would deliver their fan favorites like “Asian Hooker” and “Community Property” along with a couple of numbers from their latest album “All You Can Eat”.
