"If you gonna look at music in the dictionary, it probably say see Metal. And if you gonna look at Metal in the dictionary, it say see Steel Panther." - Brendan Malloy
Who is Steel Panther?
“THE GREATEST HEAVY METAL BAND IN HISTORY!” - Lexxi’s Mom
As stated in their music video "Heavy Metal Rules", in June 16, 2009, Steel Panther predicted to be Great by June 30, 2020.
"Seriously, 11 years and 14 days from right now in 2009. We will fuckin' cruising around in learjet and getting our dicks sucked by Paris Hilton and Britney Spears. Fuck, everyone gonna remember every word to every song." - Stix Zadinia (Lead drummer of Steel Panther)
The date is June 30, 2020.
I don't know about Paris Hilton and Britney Spears but I can tell you they are touring the world and that the Fanthers (Steel Panther's fans with the same level of dedication as the Grateful Dead's Deadheads) remember and sing along "every word to every song."
While Axl Rose's Appetite For Destruction singlehandly destroyed Guns N' Roses after 8 years of existence (1985-1993) and Mötley Crüe self-destroyed after a Decade Of Decadence (1981-1991) when some band members were not even 30 years old.
Our dudes from Steel Panther were late starters and hit success even later. Times, tastes, and the musical business have changed... And despite having all the talent in the world and even more, Steel Panther traveled a rocky road since 1997. Toiling in relative obscurity as cover band
- Michael Starr, age 55 (May 17, 1965).
- Satchel, age 49 (November 24, 1970).
- Lexxi Foxx, age 49 (July 14, 1970).
- Stix Zadinia, age 50 ( December 25, 1969).
So with my Fanther's Super-Powers, I declare June 30, Steel Panther Celebration Day. The first annual Steel Panther Celebration Day was evidently this year, June 30, 2020.
Steel Panther and Fanthers' ongoing mission: to bring Heavy Metal back to the masses.
