Steel Panther have shared a “boy band version” of their “Let’s Get High Tonight” video. You can check that out below. The original version of the video, which can be found HERE, finds the band dressing up in styles associated with a number of different genres. The track appears on their latest album “Heavy Metal Rules.” The group said the following about the new clip:
“Here’s a little something you didn’t know you needed!! Still can’t figure out why Lou Pearlman passed on us all those years ago…”
Steel Panther will be playing a virtual concert on June 7. The show will be livestreamed from Los Angeles, CA and tickets are available HERE. Proceeds will go towards Heavenly Pets Animal Rescue and Live Nation’s Crew Nation Fund.
“California rock legends and global philanthropists Steel Panther are gearing up for another first in their long and distinguished career. The band is going to be playing their first ever, completely live around the globe, socially distance abiding (band members will be 6’ away from each other too), virtual concert that they are calling the Concert To Save The World. The concert will take place on Sunday, June 7th from a sanitized, undisclosed location in Los Angeles that will feature full stage production and use multiple cameras to stream the event live on www.steelpantherrocks.com. The show will be live at 2:00PM Los Angeles time, 5:00PM New York City time, 10:00PM (22:00) London time, 11:00PM (23:00) Berlin time, 5:00AM (Monday morning) Hong Kong time and 7:00AM (Monday morning) Sydney time. The band will take breaks during the show and interact with the fans live around the globe. Tickets for the virtual concert will cost $15.00 each with proceeds from each ticket sold going to benefit Heavenly Pets Animal Rescue (the location that hosted the band’s recently announced All Day Kitty Cam) and Live Nation’s Crew Nation Fund (benefitting all touring personnel affected by the Covid-19 pandemic). Any fan who has purchased the band’s latest effect pedal The Butthole Burner prior to the concert will get a free ticket to the event. The band will also be giving away 3 pedals live during the event as well as a guitar, merchandise from longtime sponsor Monster Energy including a year’s supply of Monster, a Jambox, skateboard and other items. The Concert To Save The World is being sponsored by Monster Energy and tickets are available here: https://lnk.to/steelpantherlive.
‘This concert is guaranteed to, at the very least, have our microphones plugged in and facing the right direction.,’ explains Steel Panther. ‘We feel like heavy metal hasn’t been represented in any recent broadcasts. It is time to bring spandex and hairspray back to the forefront and ripping guitar solos into your living rooms. Additionally, Steel Panther would like to inform you that it is totally legal to attend this concert naked!’”
Steel Panther have teamed up with the Heavenly Pets animal rescue to launch an “All Day Kitty Cam.” Fans that tune in to the livestream will be able to see kittens from the shelter that are up for adoption and will also be able to donate money to help out with costs attained from the increase in abandoned pets due to the coronavirus pandemic. The band commented:
“We heard GivingTuesdayNow was May 5th and our early plan was to give away free Mexican beer for Cinco De Mayo, but the stupid virus ruined our plan. Fuck you, coronavirus. Then we heard about all the pussy being abandoned, we thought we had to do something because Steel Panther makes it no secret how much we love…. cats. We hope this stream can help our friends at Heavenly Pets and give people at home something cute to see.”
“California rock legends and effects pedal entrepreneurs Steel Panther continue to light the music instrument world on fire with the release of their newest guitar pedal – The Butthole Burner. Made in the USA, the latest distortion pedal from the collective brain trust features the exact same circuit as the now infamous Pussy Melter pedal. The new pedal has long been a rumor started by Panther guitarist Satchel and will become a reality when it ships to the public this summer. The limited production run Butthole Burner will retail for $199.99.
Not immune to the effects of the current Covid-19 pandemic as their partying has come to a stop because drug dealers are not classified as essential personnel, Steel Panther has set up an interest free 4-month payment plan for all self-quarantined musicians that might want to purchase The Butthole Burner. Also, anyone that purchased the original Melter or last year’s Poontang Boomerang delay pedal will receive 10% off their purchase. Fans must be logged in to their Panther store account and use the code “Melter10” to receive the discount. Anyone who orders The Butthole Burner will be entered for a chance to win a limited number of “Golden Tickets” that comes with Penis Chili Pepper seeds (so purchasers can grow their own butthole burner peppers at home) and a $50 gift certificate to the band’s merch store. Pre-orders for The Butthole Burner are now available here: https://bit.ly/buttholeburner.
The official description of The Butthole Burner from Steel Panther is below:
“It’s Hot! It’s Spicy! It’s sexy and feisty!!!
Ladies and gentlemen, Steel Panther presents The Butthole Burner.
It’s a new version of the perfect distortion pedal. Built with the EXACT SAME circuit as the legendary Pussy Melter, The Butthole Burner is about to scorch eardrums across the world.
If you couldn’t get in the front door last time, now it’s time to hit the backdoor!”
Steel Panther are currently sitting home practicing social distancing and self-gratification thanks to the Coronavirus. The band is planning to return to the road during some month that will kick off in some city with some other bands once the world returns to normal. In the meantime, they are working on ideas for all sorts of new things to better the lives of everyone affected by the pandemic. They recently launched an initiative to help out-of-work strippers affected by the global pandemic by posting about their performances on their socials with links for people to virtually “make it rain” from the comforts of their couches. They are also working on a 24-hour digital stream of adoptable pets as part of their Gods Of Pussy Animal Rescue Activation.

“What says good times, rock and roll, and making your buddies look like jerks in front of other people more than Steel Panther and ‘Impractical Jokers’ getting together in one killer episode????? Well, nothing. Seriously, nothing says it more. This 200th anniversary episode was a blast to film, and we were so excited to be asked to be a part of it.”
During Steel Panther’s January 19 show at the Circus in Helsinki, Finland, the band were joined onstage by Five Finger Death Punch’s Jason Hook, Chris Kael, and Charlie Engen for a cover of Van Halen’s “Ain’t Talkin’ ‘Bout Love.” You can see fan-filmed footage of that below:
