Bringing back the 80's

Postby Big Phil » 2010-06-30 04:05pm

Anyone else here a fan of glam/humor bands like Steel Panther or Rock Sugar?

A few of their respective "hits"

Steel Panther - Death to all but Metal

Steel Panther - Party All Day (Fuck All Night)

Rock Sugar - Don't Stop the Sandman

For what it's worth, I think Steel Panther are actually pretty good musicians, although without the humor element something would be lost.

They seem familiar, but I can't say I really remember them.
Mr. Harley: Your impatience is quite understandable.
Klaatu: I'm impatient with stupidity. My people have learned to live without it.
Mr. Harley: I'm afraid my people haven't. I'm very sorry... I wish it were otherwise.

I've always had a soft spot for glam metal. It's just so shamelessly ridiculous that I can't help but like it.

And damn, that Steel Panther video is hilarious. The layers of parody and irony in parodying Manowar are dizzyingly byzantine.

I much prefer the Heavy MEtal of the 80s, but there's always good old Quiet Riot

Cum On Feel The Noize

It's actually a Slade cover, but this is more famous.
