''Steel Panther'' is a [[AffectionateParody parody]] Heavy Metal group, claiming to have failed to gain mainstream success during their formation in 1988. Their look is an obvious throwback to the 80's Hair Metal and Glam Rock era. The music they produce is a spoof of all that was 80's rock music from Def Leppard ballads to Guns 'N Roses hard rock. Taken up to 11. Unsurprisingly this leads to tracklists filled to the brim with sex, drugs, self deprication and asian hookers.

The group are also notable for their live performances. Frequently calling known celebs on stage to join them and proceeding to mock or try to sleep with them. Live shows often feature cover versions of classic rock songs just for the hell of it too. The persona's of each member carrys over into an entertaining live experience filled to the brim with pretend infighting, stories of sexual exploits, overly elaborate solos and of course a healthy slice of FauxYay. It also doesnt hurt a bit that they're all actually talented musicians.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The band's premise used to be that they were an 80's band who missed their chance and were making up for it now. They used to joke about how old they were (supposedly in their 60's). This has been left out of their more recent appearances and the band simply exists as they are with no real story. The just are what they are and embrace it.

* PlayingGertrude: Bobbie Brown (Lexxi's Mom) is only 15 years older than Travis Haley (Lexxi. Of course, given the stories about Lexxi's Mom's prowess, this is ''possible''.

** Lexxi's mom, according to the [=DVD=] accompanying the album ''Songs From Lexxi's Mom's Garage'' and "Walk of Shame". Everyone in the band except Lexxi has been in her "Garage". And then Michael points out that Lexxi came out of there...
** "Walk of Shame" tackles the subject.
** The singer of "Community Property"
** "Poontang Boomerang" discusses some possible side-effects of this.

* Bowdlerization: One would think a band as raunchy as Steel Panther wouldn't take kindly to this, but some lyrics in "Community Property" are changed in the video to make them (slightly) less explicit. For instance, both "cock" and "dick" are changed to "dong".
