    And to a degree, I do too. However - they took an awesome thing and just went overboard. way, way overboard. I'm not saying they shouldn't do what they do. They just have the opposite of the desired effect.

    And then to think you can add ultra-obnoxious (and expensive) dirt box to it? Fail. Philosophiocally, I agree it's a win. Kind of like saying that a law suit is found in your favor because you were in the right, but then awarding you one dollar because it was stupid.

    I wonder what order they go on a board. The Pink Taco before the Brown Eye? Or opposite? Tone stacking is tricky.

    Always have your SIGNAL enter the PINK TACO FIRST and then the BROWN EYE after -if you must

    BUT NEVER... EVER... EVER put your SIGNAL in the BROWN EYE and then in the PINK TACO....

    Overboard I'd agree, it's like an SNL skit with a joke they just keep twisting without adding anything substantive (than the original joke or concept) to mix into it and make the twist progress.

    It's why SNL based films rarely succeed.

    SP packs venues where the play, even in Europe, people are eating it up. Again, not my thing, but...

    And those are amp names, not pedals. So you'd need an A/B switch...

    If it sounds good though.....

    I would totally rock it if it wasn't carrying such a huge price tag!... And sold out everywhere.

    I think NOT liking something because of the name on it is the same as only liking something for the brand name on it..... If it sounds great, then it sounds great. I think the name on this one is hilarious.

    Small run, high price = win

    I think there are a ton of equally awesome and cheaper options.

    I agree. I think that the first album was their musical peak, the second their comedic. At that point, they managed to capture what was ridiculous about hard rock during its glory days, but also something of what made it so appealing. There are tons of guys who have tried to parody 80s metal, but almost nobody manage to do it well, most likely because they neither like nor understand what they are parodying, and/or because they were not smart enough guys to be able to make something that worked both as music and parody. Steel Panther filled all of these criteria, as evinced by their live covers often being performed better than the original bands did, and by writing songs that sound derivative not because they can't write anything original, but because the songs obviously are rewritings of other songs, which, once again, are damn well done (Michael Starr, by the way, has a PhD in English). Just listen to the choruses: there is barely a song where they don't vary the lyrics for each chorus.

    That said, they are a one-joke band playing on the debauchery of rock stars, and as time has gone by they haven't had anywhere else to turn than to crank that one joke further up. That isn't how humour works - a joke doesn't get more fun the less subtle it is - and the last two albums have basically been a race to the bottom in my opinion. By going that way, you inevitably end up going from poking fun at yourself to poking fun at others, which is how you get from "17 Girls in a Row", which is already borderline, to "B****** Tears", which is way over the border.

    By the way, they have arguably never managed to tell their one joke as well as Danger Danger did in Monkey Business, where the protagonist is trying to pick up one-night stands by telling the story of King Kong as a parable.

    Yeah. All that.

    My band plays 80s hair rock as authentically as we can, and our motto is dare to be dumb. That, people dig.

    But Steel Panthers only remaining fans are Beavis & Butthead anymore and a few guitar fanbois

    While I agree with you that their schtick is more than a little overboard, they are making a living and playing internationally, getting sig guitars and other endorsements, so I think they may be a little up on Steve Dallas and co. I think they have a few more than 2 80s burnout fans.

    It's a pedal - not a hot sauce.
