Steel Panther: Keepin' Cock Rock Alive While On The Road With Judas Priest
Candid Interview With Satchel And Lexxi Foxx
Sometimes you have to wonder how in the HELL does a band like Steel Panther get to where they are so fast? If you don't know who Steel Panther is, you might want to keep it that way because this band has no shame, all game and if you are easily offended, then move along, nothing to see here! Seriously, Steel Panther are currently on tour with classic metal monsters, Judas Priest, as they hit town to town keeping Cock Rock alive in the new millennium. In support of their third full release, All You Can Eat, this band is going balls out.... literally! So sit back and enjoy a casual and very candid conversation with founding members guitarist Satchel and that sexy bitch of a bass player, Lexxi Foxx.
Steel Panther is an American glam metal band from Los Angeles, California, mostly known for their profane and humorous lyrics as well as their exaggerated on-stage personae that parody the stereotypical view of lifestyle in the 1980s.

The quartet began to gain popularity in the Sunset Strip during the early 2000s under the name Metal Shop (soon changed into Metal Skool, then into Steel Panther). Their lineup consists of vocalist Michael Starr, drummer Stix Zadinia, bassist Lexxi Foxx, and guitarist Satchel. The band did weekly shows on Monday nights at the Key Club, playing covers of 1980s hair metal hits while parodying the bands that made the songs famous. Despite the name changes, and some members putting in time in a Van Halen tribute band, they finally managed to gain some success. In 2003 Steel Panther published Hole Patrol, their self-produced debut. The band appeared in a Discover Card advertisement as Danger Kitty and in the sitcom Drew Carey Show as themselves. Also in 2003, their song "Death to All But Metal" was included in a compilation CD called Hey, That's What I Call Sludge! Vol. 1 put out by the Metal Sludge web site. Their cover of the song "Fantasy" by Aldo Nova was used as the opening musical theme for the MTV program Rob Dyrdek's Fantasy Factory. On November 27, 2007 Metal Skool played original songs as well as covers of KISS songs at the Gene Simmons roast, they can be seen in the background of Gene Simmons' reality show Gene Simmons Family Jewels. That year, they also appeared as themselves on Las Vegas in the episode "The High Price of Gas".
