Steel Panther has been on the road in support of their highest chart debut of their career, All You Can Eat. The album was released on Open E Records via Kobalt Label Services and stormed the top of the charts landing at #24 on the Billboard Top 200. The band also garnered their third consecutive #1 album on the Top Current Comedy Charts. The album is currently available at all physical and digital retailers or can be ordered via SteelPanther.TV. All You Can Eat was produced by Jay Ruston and Steel Panther.

Steel Panther was, for a long time, rock’s best-kept secret: a cult legend on the LA scene. But in recent years due to the success of their albums (all of which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Comedy Album Charts), and live shows, the band has enjoyed huge acclaim from fans and peers alike. Steel Panther has been joined on stage by a who’s who of musical icons such as Steven Tyler of Aerosmith, Paul Stanley of KISS, Kelly Clarkson, Pink, Billy Ray Cyrus, Corey Taylor of Slipknot, Tom Morello of Rage Against The Machine/Audioslave, Chester Bennington of Linkin Park and Green Day to name a few. Steel Panther has also been seen on Dancing With The Stars, Bad Girl’s Club and most recently in a national web campaign for Warner Brothers Pictures hit film, Rock Of Ages. The band played to the largest crowd of their career this past June when they closed the Download Festival in Donnington, UK alongside Alter Bridge and Aerosmith.

  1. There’s an entire NWOTHM movement going on. A movement that’s managed to not only outlast the NWOBHM scene (79-82) vs (2007-), but match some of the top tier NWOBHM albums. And yet, Priest and their agents pick a joke parody band. Things like that are why Metal failed to come back in 2005.

    Take a look at only a few of many young bands who are more worthy of the slot. Youtube paste them:

    Enforcer – Nightmares
    Steelwing – Full Speed Ahead
    Skull Fist – Heavier than Metal
    Night – Into the Night
    White Wizzard – Out of Control
    Rocka Rollas – Riding Wild
    Axxion – Fireheart
    Striker – It Could Be Worse
    Gypsyhawk – State Lines
    and more.

    New Wave of Glam Metal/Hard Rock
    Reckless Love – Die Hard
    Crashdiet – Native Nature
    Slam Alley – 21 Fire
    Jettblack – Raining Rock
    Airbourne – Back in the Game
    and more.
