Steel Panther have launched a virtual photo exhibit, called “Sex, JPEGS and Rock & Roll,” in an effort to help out concert photographers amid the coronavirus pandemic. The band have teamed up with seven photographers for the gallery, which can be seen HERE.
The band commented:
“Kickin’ off something NEW today!! We’re partnering with 7 of our longtime collaborators to curate a virtual photo exhibition we’re calling ‘Sex, JPGs and Rock N Roll’!! Each photographer has captured us with their lens at various points in our career and will be highlighted in a two week gallery on our official site. Even better, you can purchase exclusive prints that were hand-picked by us and the photographers in various configurations with the profits going to help each photographer during this touring shutdown AND we’re kicking off each exhibit with a livestream interview with the photographer!!”
They also added:
“You see them all the time. They block your view for the first three songs and you may even kick them in the back of the head while crowd surfing, but these unsung heroes never complain or kick you back. These photographers have been friends of Steel Panther for a while and we decided for all they have done for us, this was the least we can do,” they continued, “So grab your fancy berets and prepare to learn a thing or two from Steel Panther photography exhibit ‘Sex, JPEGS and Rock & Roll.’ Admission is free so don’t be cheap and buy something to support these artists.”

Despite the coronavirus pandemic that has claimed the lives of over 300,000 people in the U.S., Steel Panther decided to play three shows in Florida on December 17-19, two which featured special guests. During the first date at the Ace Café in Orlando, the band were joined onstage by *NSYNC’s Joey Fatone for performances of “Girl From Oklahoma” and “Community Property.” During the second date at Jannus Live in St. Petersburg, the band were joined onstage by Fozzy‘s Chris Jericho for a cover of Judas Priest‘s “You’ve Got Another Thing Comin’“ You can see footage of all that below:
Steel Panther have premiered a new video for “Fuck 2020.” That track is a reworked version of the band’s 2019 song “Fuck Everybody.” You can watch the video below and purchase new “Fuck 2020” merchandise HERE. With this news, the group have also revealed that their “Gobblefest” livestream show has been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. They said the following about that:
“This year has been fucking tough on everyone. We were excited to hang with you all at Gobblefest this weekend and hopefully have some laughs, but COVID has other plans for us. We hope you enjoy the new song in the meantime. It has become an anthem for the band — and not just because we wrote it. Please join us in telling 2020 to suck our collective dick.”
During a recent appearance on “The Crash Report” podcast, Stix Zadinia talked a bit about Steel Panther and Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor’s unreleased collaborative track “Steel Panther Fucked My Girlfriend.” The drummer says that he hopes the song will be released at some point and that “it sounds like the fucking Eagles.”
Zadinia said the following about the track, which was previously covered by Wheeler Walker Jr.:
“We never played it. Somehow [Wheeler Walker Jr.] got a copy of it. We never released it. And there’s a version out in one of our hard drives with Corey Taylor singing it.”
He continued after the interviewer said that the group should release it:
“We should. We fucking should. You know what? I need to talk to Satchel about that. Corey Taylor sings ‘Steel Panther Fucked My Girlfriend’. It’s amazing. It sounds like the fucking Eagles — the original version.”
He also added:
“Wheeler Walker did a version of it. The end product, the end result of it, I heard and I was, like, it’s cool and it was nice of him to wanna do, but when you hear our version of it, especially with Corey on it, you’ll be, like, ‘This sounds like the fucking Eagles.'”
Steel Panther have announced two more virtual concerts. The first one, which is called “Gobblefest – Gobbling Isn’t Just For The Holidays Livestream,” will take place on December 5 and it will feature Bobby Blotzer (ex-Ratt) and other special guests. The group will also be debuting a reimagined version of “Fuck Everybody” titled “Fuck 2020.” The second one, which is called “Almost Live – Formal As Fuck New Year’s Eve Special,” will take place on December 31 and it will feature Corey Taylor (Slipknot, Stone Sour) and Chris Jericho (Fozzy). The group will also be replacing “Auld Lang Syne” with the aforementioned “Fuck 2020.” Tickets can be found HERE.
Steel Panther have shared a new live video for their song “It Won’t Suck Itself.” The clip was filmed during the band’s recent “Halloweenie Ride Livescream” show at the Viper Room in West Hollywood, CA. Fans can still watch the full performance on demand now through November 14.
