YMMV: Steel Panther
  • Acceptable Targets: Hookers, fat women and anything to do with 80's rock. Which by extension also means themselves.
  • Alternative Character Interpretation: Amusingly several critics and even individuals who've met them claim they shouldn't be considered a parody band at all. They simply are.
  • Crosses the Line Twice: Some critics feel they take jokes too far. Fans on the other hand, love the fact they frequently do this.
  • Dude, Not Funny!: Some members of Mötley Crüe (but not all of them) have explained that they don't get the joke. Amusingly enough, they're currently co-headlining a tour with Def Leppard with Steel Panther as support.
  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff: Considered a novelty act in their native US, where they usually have to tour with more known bands to fill up an arena. However overseas in Europe they can sell out five and ten-thousand seat arenas as the headliner and draw 20,000 at a festival stage. They're even bigger in Australia where All You Can Eat peaked at #2 on the charts, and would have gone to number one had native sons INXS not released a greatest hits album that week.
  • Signature Song: Death to all but Metal
