Steel Panther
As political correctness suffocates and squeezes the last drop of fun from popular culture, four men
boldly plant their flag
(and maybe another appendage)
into the ground in the name of heavy metal...
Now, Steel Panther
Michael Starr
[lead vocals]
, Satchel
[lead guitar]
, Lexxi Foxx
[bass]
, and Stix Zadinia
[drums]
have certainly waved the flag for sex, drugs, and metal to the point of keeping this holy trinity
alive since emerging in 2000. However, they fulfill
(i.e. engorge)
this mis
sion to its fullest potential on
their fifth full

length
,
the aptly titled
Heavy Metal Rules
. T
he solos screech louder, the vocals soar
higher, the drums hit harder, and the bass throbs mightier than ever before.
“You’re going to hear something familiar,
but you’re
also
going to hear something new,” says Michael.
“We grew as musicians and as people. The core values stay the same:
Heavy Metal Rules
and hot chicks
are fun.”
Heavy Metal Rules
is the perfect phrase
to describe how we feel,” explains Stix. “It
’s not just music; it’s
a lifestyle. We’ve been able to create an environment for ourselves where nothing is off limits. There are
no boundaries. We push it, because we like to push it. In this day and age, people are open to pushing it,
because everything
is so politically correct. We
a
re the last bastion where you can go if you want to get
your freak on. We’re the most truthful band on the fucking planet.”
The planet continues to welcome them time and time again.

.
2017’s
Lower The Bar
earned praise from
Metal Hammer
and
Classic Rock
as the group’s cumulative
 
streams surpassed 100 million and views leapt past 100
million by 2019. Along the way, they shook
stages alongside everyone from Aerosmith to Alter Bridge and Stone Sour and incited flashing from
crowds at
Download
and countless sold out headline gigs.
In 2019, they hunkered down in Lexxi’s mom’s garage alon
gside frequent collaborator and regular
producer Jay Ruston [Anthrax, Stone Sour] to cut
Heavy Metal Rules
.
“I can’t play what Satchel does, so we got a fucking
Bitchin’
studio musician to do the bass,”
states
Lexxi.
“The studio musician killed it. We had
one of my strongest photo shoots
,
because I had some
B
otox and
got my highlights done right before. I’m still staying with my mom. If this goes well, I’ll be able to get my
own apartment.”
“The lead guitar is really in
-
your
-
face,” adds Satchel. “We
left out a lot of the rhythm guitar. It’s easier to
hear the solos. They don’t suck either.”
“What Jay got out of the record sonically is our best,” Stix elaborates. “There are hooks all over it. It’s
the perfect Steel Panther album.”
Look no further than
the first single “All I Wanna Do Is Fuck (Myself Tonight).” A thick beat gives way to
a gang vocal backed by heavy riffs and a message of self
-
empowerment...
“You want to fuck yourself, because you can’t find anybody hotter,” the frontman goes on. “When you
see a band on stage, the first thing you notice is what they’re wearing or what they look like.
If you’re
getting ready,
y
ou want to make sure
chicks
want to fuck you, but you want to fuck yourself. Once
people are attracted by the look, they get trapped b
y the fucking infectious music of our songs
.
Looks
are the most important thing. It’s what’s on the outside that really matters.”
Acoustic guitar builds towards a lovelorn lamentation on “Always Gonna Be A Ho,” which
,
as Michael
Puts it,
“Is about this one
chick who had a problem fucking everybody I know”
He adds, “All of the guys in the band are attracted to strippers, because we basically have the same
lifestyle. We perform for people who want to fuck us, but we also do it for the love of fucking being on
stage. Girls just want
to
get laid too. Some girls say,
‘Oh, Steel Panther are a bunch of whores.’
Well, the
reality is so are you!”
The thunderous climax on “Gods of Pussy” details the burden of
“getting as much pussy as Steel Panther
gets
.
Meanwhile,
“Fuck Everybody” rails against injustices of
“some dick going 20 miles in the fast
lane”
or
“having to wait at Starbucks
.
“Heavy metal rules,” reiterates Stix. “You don’t like it. Suck my dick.”
If things keep going as well as they are, you’ll have to ge
t in line...
“We’re going to write about sex, drugs, and all of the
Bitchin’
shit from the
80s
we love,” Satchel leaves
off. “It’s a great feeling to be in this band. We have a blast
.
W
e love each other. We’ve been through a
lot together. We’ll keep on rocki
ng until one us breaks a hip or some shit.”
“We really do love heavy metal and performing,” Michael concludes. “We’re going to fucking conquer
the world the Steel Panther way. Heavy metal is coming back. Pretty soon, everyone’s going to have
long hair and
wear spandex.”
 
“Can I just say we all look fantastic as well?” interrupts Lexxi
(as everyone else leaves)
. “We’re doing our
part to bring heavy metal to the messes. Do some occasional drugs to keep yourself
okay
on the inside,
fuck as much as possible, and
oh yeah,
Heavy Metal Rules
