Satirically pretending to be a hair metal band that missed its big break in the '80s, singer Ralph Saenz ("Michael Starr"), drummer Darren Leader ("Stix Zadinia"), bassist Travis Haley ("Lexxi Foxxx"), and guitarist Russ Parrish ("Satchel") hit the club circuit on the Sunset Strip around the turn of the millennium under the name Metal Shop. In May 2008 the band signed to Universal Republic. After releasing the singles "Death for All But Metal" and "Community Property," Steel Panther's full-length Feel the Steel was released in October 2009. Not wanting the fun to stop, followed up with 2011's Balls Out, which featured guest appearances from comedian Dane Cook and Nickelback's Chad Kroeger, among others. 2014's All You Can Eat upped the sleaze factor considerably.
