Steel Panther (formerly known as Danger Kitty, Metal Shop and Metal Skool), is a Los Angeles, California Glam Metal band. Originally formed as Metal Shop, they're known for their energetic live show, the longest running heavy metal show on the Sunset Strip . Onstage, the band both pays tribute to and lampoons the heyday of 80's glam metal. The band's between-song comedy includes jests at conflict between band members, discussions of drugs, sex, and improvised humor with the crowd.

The band members have all adopted pseudonyms in the spirit of the bands they imitate. Their line up is billed as: drummer "Stix Zadinia" (real name Darren Leader), guitarist "Satchel" (real name Russ Parrish), singer "Michael Starr," (real name Ralph Saenz) and bassist "Lexxi Foxxx" (real name Travis Haley).

Other Projects
Saenz is the former lead singer for the Van Halen tribute band the "Atomic Punks", and was lead singer for L.A. Guns for a short period of time. Parrish was formerly the guitar player for the Atomic Punks and for the Rob Halford-fronted band, Fight. Leader and Parrish have another band of their own called the Thornbirds with Jeff Duncan of Armored Saint on guitar and bassist Dean Cameron, who also directed Metal Skool's "Fat Girl" video.

Recently the band moved to the Key Club on the Sunset Strip where their shows have been selling out regularly. They continue to play other regular gigs in the Southern California area including a weekly show in San Diego, California. Beginning June 2008 every Friday night, Steel Panther began playing The Ovation Lounge at Green Valley Ranch Casino in Henderson, NV. They've been featured on the cover of All Access Magazine, and won their award for "Best Tribute Band in the Universe." The San Diego Union-Tribune has called them "the ultimate '80s heavy metal tribute." Dave Swanson has called them "my favorite band I have never seen."

In America, hair metal was long considered extinct - then came Steel Panther and showed just how wrong this was! Said Los Angeles-quartet have been around for roughly a decade, under different monickers - they released their debut "Hole Patrol" both in 2003 as Metal Shop, and in 2005 as Metal Skool. As Steel Panther, they debuted in 2009 with "Feel the Steel", and this album has made the public take serious notice. For the acclaimed music, reminiscent of glam/hair metal heroes like Poison, Slaughter et al, but even more for the ironic (?) lyrics. Titles like "Asian Hooker", "Stripper Girl" and "I Want Pussy" indicate, correctly, that the lyrics of Steel Panther would make a gangsta-rapper blush!

Sunset Strip hair metal legends STEEL PANTHER are giving away something other than an STD this week. Their track "Death to All But Metal" is available for free on iTunes all this week. In the song lead singer Michael Starr takes shots at Good Charlotte, Dr.Dre, Papa Roach, and many other non-metal headliners.
