Can never have too much cowbell!
There were times when Rik and I were writing together when we almost died laughing. They were some of the most carefree stupid days I ever had, and I feel privileged to have shared them with him. And now he's died for real. Without me. Selfish bastard.

That's pretty cool of Perry Farrell and Flea to pose with those two guys from college.  ;)

Has anyone else got a copy of what I have always considered their "debut"?



I had a download of it at one time. It wasn't great and the banter tracks were shit. Bad News did it better ontheir debut

I saw it when it came out. I like it. :lol :metal
I think I'm going to enjoy this album more than the last one.

Yep. I think the only party in the MP/DT situation that hasn't moved on is DTF.

Great live show always............seen em 4 times but I have no real intention of buying any of their new music.  Everything I hear sounds similar but less inspired than my faves from the first two albums.

I haven't liked anything off this one yet. Still great live though.

New album is basically out now, and the whole thing is up on Steel Panther's official Youtube tube. :metal
After a first listen, I'd say the two singles are by far the best things on the album. The rest did nothing for me at all. Looks like it might continue the trend of me enjoying half as much as I did from the previous album.

That's a bummer...  I already thought All You Can Eat was only a fraction as good as Balls Out.  I tried to listen to the new album today.  Somewhere in the first song I kinda just lost interest.  I'm sure I'll check out the whole album someday, but it's not really a priority.

Listened on YouTube last night. Thought it was ok. Some different stuff inthere for SP and better songs than the first couple of songs released. There was something missing though and I'm not sure what. Things sounded too smooth and a bit lifeless. Better than I was expecting though.

And if they are to continue the parody, the next album has to go grunge.

New album is growing on me.
Just listening to I Got What You Want and the beginning with the cheesy keyboards reminds me of this classic

I like it. Better than the last one. And I didn't have high hopes going in. Could do without the Cheap Trick cover. They only have three good songs and one of those is an Elvis song... and She's Tight isn't one of them

Who?  Cheap Trick???? Wha???

Speak Now or Forever Hold Your Peace
Downed
Southern Girls
I Want You To Want Me
Surrender
Auf Weidersehn
Takin' Me Back
Stiff Competition
Dream Police
Way Of The World
I'll Be With You Tonight
Voices
Stop This Game
Can't Stop It But I'm Gonna Try
I Love You Honey But I Hate Your Friends

And that's just the first five albums. I haven't even gotten to the deeper cuts or the "80's hits".   Songs like Tonight It's You, Standing On The Edge, Wait For An Answer, All I Need Is A Dream, Say Goodbye...  I could list 10 more easy, but my kid needs breakfast.

This is Steel Panther guys.  They are not going to cover Tonight It's You.  She's Tight is perfect for them and I disagree that it's a bad song.  Also they lyrics fit to what SP does.

I wasn't suggesting that; I agree that the SP cover is perfect.  I was commenting on the odd statement that Cheap Trick "only has three good songs".   Maybe only three songs you like - fair point, opinions, subjective, whatever - but not only "three good songs".

Ah.  Plus an ass kicking live show.  I was talking though to Lowdz.  I should have quoted him.  My bad.

It was said tongue in cheek (ooh, SP would like that 😀). CT have just not done anything for me.
