DESCRIPTION: (from Comedy Central's press release, May 2010) This loosely scripted docu-reality show follows the outrageous and popular '80's style hairband, Steel Panther, as they attempt to bring back heavy metal. Featuring vocalist Michael Starr, drummer Stix Zadinia, bassist Lexxi Foxxx, and guitarist Satchel, Steel Panther is a parody heavy metal band from Los Angeles, known for their profane and humorous lyrics. Their over-the-top live performances have attracted celebrities and fans alike, and in February 2009 the band succeeded in becoming one of the most popular cover bands in California, winning the contest of "Best Tribute Band in the Universe". The band's first album, entitled "Feel the Steel" was released in 2009. "Steel Panther" is created by Brian Posehn ("The Sarah Silverman Program") and Jeff Tremaine ("Jackass").
