Keywords: Steel Panther, Kanye West, Beck, Beyoncé, The Grammys, Dane Cook-tier jokes.

Steel Panther, a band that exists as a vessel to deliver juvenile jokes about sexual assault while wearing period-piece costumes, have strong opinions about Kanye West. Apparently, something happened at the Grammys the other night involving Kanye West, Beck, and Beyonce. I don’t know the details because the Grammys are completely pointless and unless Mammoth Grinder was involved, I probably don’t care.

Steel Panther, who were not involved in the Grammys in any way, decided to write a (blessedly) brief and shitty song about the Kanye West incident. It is embedded below:

Kanye West is a divisive figure but regardless of your opinions on the man or his behavior, he is an influential and important mainstream artist. Steel Panther, on the other hand, writes joke songs about semen in the style of a genre that hasn’t been popular in 30 years. This isn’t the first time Steel Panther have taken a shot at Kanye West. Here are some of the lyrics from “Death to All But Metal”.

Fuck the Goo Goo Dolls, they can suck my balls
They look like the dorks that hang out at the mall
Eminem can suck it, so can Dr. Dre
They can suck each other, just because they’re gay

Death to Papa Roach, Blink 182
All those fucking pussies sounds like doggy-doo
Wearing baggy pants, spiking up their hair
They’re not worth the crust on my underwear
Death to Britney Spears, kill the little slut
Kill Madonna too and then fuck her in the butt
Fuck Mariah Carey, death to Sheryl Crow
They can kiss each other on their camel toe
50 Cent’s a fag, so is Kanye West
Shooting hot sperm on each others’ chest

Sure, these lyrics are stupid, misogynistic, and homophobic but the song was released all the way back in 1997. Oh wait, no. This bullshit dropped in the year of our lord 2009. Lines about the fucking Goo Goo Dolls. 2009. Calling women sluts and men fags. 2009. “doggy doo”. 2009. Fuck outta here, nerds.

Defenders of the band loudly exclaim that the lyrics are tongue-in-cheek, it’s all a joke. Cool, but the joke sucks. What kind of mouth-breather actually laughs along to lines like “Sucky fucky, sucky fucky, smells like sushi”? People that like Steel Panther own multiple copies of The Hot Chick on blu-ray. People that like Steel Panther think telling women to get back in the kitchen is HILARIOUS. People that like Steel Panther think Chuck Norris jokes are cutting-edge humor. People that like Steel Panther believe they are oppressed because people get upset when they use racial slurs. People that like Steel Panther masturbate to Girls Gone Wild commercials. Flush this band forever.

    The joke may suck, but don’t you dare tell me it’s not opprseeion when people complain about my racial slurs.

    • Nordling Rites ov BDSM

      I felt bad instantly after releasing this jokish comment, so i slightly edited it. Thanks.

      • It was a little funny. Honestly not sure how that made it through the comment filter though.

      I’m glad you pushed that album so hard or I never would have bought it. It’s already a strong contender for my AOTY.

    Fuck it’s cold out. Mothafuckin real feel ov -18!!!

      Stay grvm and frvstbvttvn, Tyree.

    • Dagon

      One of my friends from PVD told me the termic sensation over there is -32. That’s insane.

      • VVayne Brady

        I thought I heard yesterday that the east coast is having a record winter.

        • Tyree

          Finally some of the states more south are getting the snow this time though.

          • Stockhausen

            I’m out of school today. It rules.

          • Tyree

            Get your breakfast beer on!

          • VVayne Brady

            Wow. No snow here, but it’s below freezing.

          • Stockhausen

            We didn’t get a lot, but it’s really cold and there’s s definite sheet of ice.

          • FeelTheDarkness

            Thanks

          • Tyree

            Thanks for taking one of the team.

        • Dagon

          Thankfully the winter I spent in the US was very mild. I used to think “I like cold” or “Yay, snow” but that excitement wore off real quick after unboarding the plane with nothing but a jacket and a t-shirt underneath in -17 C weather.

          • FeelTheDarkness

            That will do it

          • Dagon

            Not for me, apparently.

        • Kim Jong Un’s Turkish Snowcone

          It’s cold as fucking balls over here, which is odd. The Weather Channel says we’re supposed to get up to a foot of snow tonight, but then again the Weather Channel is NEVER right. They’re too busy posting pointless articles to do their actual jobs. Damnit, Weather Channel, you had ONE FUCKING JOB!

        • Simon “Djentcrusher” Phoenix

          You’d be right. I’d rather deal with the earthquakes that took out the original San Francisco than deal with this cold and snow.

          The only bright side is that Boston is getting boned by Mother Nature far worse than we are.

      • I elected to drive in to work today because of the “You can get frostbite in less than 10 minutes” warning.

    • MoshOff

      Here’s a mindfvkk for y’all: -40º C is the same thing as -40º F. Go check, I’ll wait.

    • Kim Jong Un’s Turkish Snowcone

      Kinda weird for southeast VA, but it’s 5 degrees with windchill over here, and supposed to hit -5 tonight, with up to a foot of snow. So, getting my ass up the street to grab a couple things here in a few before the worst hits.

  • DeadButtDreaming

    Gonna leave my favorite Kanye quote here. Also, less Kanye, more Void.

    • FeelTheDarkness

      This speaks volumes about him

    • KJM

      If he actually said this, this makes him one of the biggest idiots drawing breath.

      • FeelTheDarkness

        It is a actual quote from him

      • more beer

        Look what he married. Anything that comes out of his mouth shouldn`t be a shock to anyone. He said I do to, do you take this skank?

        • KJM

          No doubt, talk about buying the cow when you can get the milk for free.

          • more beer

            But who wants sour milk?

    • Between The Buried & Smee

      The confederate flag on his jacket really seals the deal

      • Paris Hilton

        The Confederate Flag is due to his song New Slaves. Kanye hates the flag and says it’s his flag now! It’s meant to represent empowerment rather than oppression

        • Huh. Last I checked it still represented idiot rednecks trapped in a past they never lived.

          • BASEDBEARD

            As someone who lives in the south, in the mountains no less, Gurp is right. Kanye is just a ridiculous idiot, and a half ass rapper

          • He’s a good producer, though.

          • Clickhole is beautiful:

          • I know this is a joke, but it hurts.

          • Paris Hilton

            That’s all I see too, but I do appreciate where Kanye is coming from! It’s funny how metalheads will stick up for a white trash junkie with Swastikas tattooed all over his body cuz “symbols totally mean different things and FREEDOM OF SPEECH YOU SJW!!” Yet, will crucify Kanye for actually trying to change a hateful symbol. *latent racism intensifies*

          • I think a better solution would be to just let it fade into irrelevancy (in like another 200 years), instead of keeping it around by changing its meaning. Some things don’t need to stick around.

          • Paris Hilton

            Well said!

          • Between The Buried & Smee

            I recently realized how I know more neo-nazis in metal than black people.

      • Kim Jong Un’s Turkish Snowcone

        The South will rise again (just as soon as it can pick up it’s massive beer gut and get out of it’s Hov-A-Round just enough to grab the Hungry Man Dinners off the top shelf at Walmart)!

    • He sure is a broken brained nit wit.

    • Demonstrating a complete lack of self-awareness, as usual.

    • BASEDBEARD

      Kanye West should die in a fire

    • Kim Jong Un’s Turkish Snowcone

      Starts to explain why he got married to quite possibly the most useless person on the planet. I can’t wait until she dumps him after realizing she can’t squeeze another 15 minutes of fame out of him, clears out his bank account like a pack of army ants from the alimony and divorce, and his epic rant/meltdown afterwards.

  • Stockhausen

    Kanye West sucks and is an idiot, Steel Panther are grown children who are somehow even worse. Poser hakks, everyone.

  • Dagon

    Also, if they’re gay, wouldn’t sucking each other constitute a very entertaining activity?

  • CyberneticOrganism

    *applause for Papa Joe*

    I fucking hate Steel Panther.

  • Akerskronks ov Steele

    I used to be all about the girls gone wild commercials, and then I turned 13.

  • KJM

    Both of these “artists” are as important and influential as what I left in my toilet this morning.

    • Stockhausen

      KJM’s poop >>>>>>> Kanye West, Beyonce, Steel Panther

    • Kim Jong Un’s Turkish Snowcone

      Don’t flush it yet! *grabs my canvas and paint*

  • Hubert, Goat ov/of SATAN!!!!!

    Kanye said something stupid, Beck’s response was stupid, everyone else’s response was stupid. Steel Panther is stupid.

    Mammoth Grinder is good. I like their music. The sounds they make with their guitars, drums and vocal chords are pleasing to my ears.

    • CyberneticOrganism

      Everything about the Grammys is outdated and pointless.

      • Kim Jong Un’s Turkish Snowcone

        It’s like any other entertainment awards show: an industry circle jerk. Except for the AVN awards, which is literally a circle jerk in a good way.

        • CyberneticOrganism

          Yep, pretty much.

          – Media companies manufacture music acts.
          – Media companies own media outlets.
          – Media companies play said music acts on said media outlets.
          – Media companies award selves for playing said music acts on said media outlets.

    • This is pretty much the take away here.

    • Stockhausen

      So you’re sayin’ there’s a chance.

    • Kim Jong Un’s Turkish Snowcone

      No Artificial Brain = no Grammys!

  • IronLawnmower

    I knew a guy who loved steel panther. he was a compulsive liar and a two faced dick.

    • Guacamole Jim

      How do you know he really loved them then?

      • IronLawnmower

        He was that kind of asshole

  • Scrimm

    Ahhh shit my toilet just broke.

  • john

    I despise both sides of this argument. But Steel Panther has an electric guitar in it somewhere, so I feel I have to give them the nod.

  • EsusMoose

    I was hoping for a long tirade about them, most joke bands suck anyway. The Key of Awesome has like 2 good songs and then a lot of crap. Weird Al>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>everything

  • KJM

    Brent Hinds gave The Grammys precisely the amount of respect they deserve, which is none.

    • FeelTheDarkness

      It was great that he got the heave ho

  • HessianHunter

    Kanye West rules, FYI. He’s a god-tier producer. Evidence found below.

    • Dagon

      This whole album is gold. Also, few rappers in the game have put out records that feel like actual albums. Most of the LPs these days sound like mixtapes they are charging you for.

    • HessianHunter
      • Dagon

        New Slaves was my favorite song from Yeezus, as was Jesus Walks from College Dropout.

        Nothing trumps MBDTF though, I think his use of guitars and amalgamation of every production technique he used before is just glorious.

        • I really dig Cam’ron so I’m a big fan of this collaboration. DIPSET

        • Edward/Breegrodamus

          I was just listening to My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy this past week. I loved it after it was released but this past week it sounded weirdly outdated to me if that makes any sense at all.

          • Dagon

            I guess it may be, production wise. On a personal level, this album is so deeply embedded in many moments of my life since it was released that I will never dislike it. I don’t go back to it as often as I once did but some of those songs just give me the feels, because memories.

          • Edward/Breegrodamus

            I know about those albums. I know about those feels.

    • EsusMoose

      I liked the first 2-3 records but found the last two to be missing something.

    • Kim Jong Un’s Turkish Snowcone

      ‘Blood On The Grass’ was good, and has an oddly industrial kind of feel to it.

  • MoshOff

    In case anyone was wondering, Russ Parrish (“Satchel”) and Darren Leader (“Stix Zadinia”) are in a srs rock band (video below). Also Ralph Saenz (“Michael Starr”) is married. Every single word they say in interviews is calculated to keep building the characters they have set up for themselves.

    Also all of them except for the singer use wigs, in case it wasn’t obvious.

    • Hubert, Goat ov/of SATAN!!!!!

      But… The joke. It’s not funny.

      • MoshOff

        They have some genuinely really funny stand-up moments and lyrics. Otherwise, it’s mostly dick jokes and the like.

        • Further Down the Metal Hole

          *insert obvious ToH comment that “My Dick” does it way, way better*

    • They can calculate their jokes all they want, they’re still garbage.

    • HessianHunter

      The joke Steel Panther songs are better than this srs Thornbirds song, lyrics included

  • Hubert, Goat ov/of SATAN!!!!!

    Giving awards to things isn’t metal.
    *flushes grammy’s through Kanye’s toilet*

  • Further Down the Metal Hole

    I don’t care for either, although I will say I’m in the camp that thinks the joke thing aka Steel Panther has been stretched quite a tad too long.

    • Stockhausen

      Several tads indeed, and all of them too long.

    • KJM

      It was mildly amusing for about a day.

      • Lacertilian

          That scene is so horrifying.

          • VVayne Brady

            Same here.

          • Sequels are almost always stupid. Wait until they reboot this stupid shit. I gurantee it will happen.

        • EsusMoose

          At first I thought they were french fries, but those usually don’t stab or impale you. I was quite wrong you can’t eat syringes

          • A mistake you only make once.

          • Kim Jong Un’s Turkish Snowcone

            They will if you cook them right! I’m sure you can impale someone with a properly fried steak fry.

          • EsusMoose

            “Properly fried” = burnt into diamonds?

          • Kim Jong Un’s Turkish Snowcone

            Exactly! Hell, next time you’re at McDonald’s, just ask for your fries well done, considering those things are almost like chewing into twigs already.

          • EsusMoose

            I could get a nice selection of throwing darts for like $1.69

  • HessianHunter

    I generally find Steel Panther’s shtick humorous and enjoy the songs, but I’m def not wild about the homophobic jokes. Even in the context that they’re pretending to be “dumb 80’s guys”, it’s not clear if they actually know that homophobia isn’t cool and the lyrics are ignorant and that’s part of their joke, or if they’re just using the zany getup as an excuse to make off-color jokes and deflect criticism on the grounds that they’re acting true to the period they emulate.

    • MoshOff

      I think it’s the former, they’re full-on trolls for sure.

      • HessianHunter

        I suspect that’s how they personally feel, but I doubt the bulk of their fanbase gets that, honestly. :/

        • MoshOff

          That’s the unfortunate part, in that regard they’re kind of like the Dave Chappelle of music.

          • DAMN. That’s harsher than anything I wrote.

          • Kim Jong Un’s Turkish Snowcone

            I’d say more like The Lonely Island with actual instruments.

          • Simon “Djentcrusher” Phoenix

            Except Dave Chappelle is actually funny.

        • KJM

          I’m 100% certain these guys are not homophobes and think the lyrics are just part of the gag. They’re not hateful, just unaware.

          • probably not homophobic or hateful… but it certainly takes a BDub Bro to find calling someone a f@g funny.

          • HessianHunter

            Yeah, I think you’re right, but I also think it’s generally more important to consider the effects of what is said rather than the intent behind it. In a climate where it’s not universally accepted that gay folks are cool, I think it’s irresponsible to make light of calling someone a “f@g”, even if Steel Panther themselves are not homophobes.

          • KJM

            Agree 100%

    • CyberneticOrganism

      “HA HA HA AND THEN I CAME ON HER FACE! SLUT!”
      *80s wig flip*
      *shitty guitar solo*
      *homophobic slur*

      – Steel Panther

    • Kim Jong Un’s Turkish Snowcone

      Eh, I don’t take any offense to it. I’m fairly sure they’re not homophobic, and it’s definitely nowhere near as offensive as some of the shit Eminem or Fred Durst have said about gays. No one seems to mutter a peep about that, at least not nowadays.

      • Ferris Mueller

        SP’s live set at Wakken was amazingly entertaining. Hard to watch that and not have some love for them afterward.

      • HessianHunter

        That’s because they’re old hat at this point. Modern artists still get taken to task all the time about their lyrics. People have taken issue with Tyler The Creator’s use of gay slurs, for instance.

  • So this is a SJW blog now?

        • Clearly, they must hate us straight white men, which is the only possible reason anyone could have for any of this.

          I couldn’t stand the animation though. It looked like everyone was either having DTs or a bad case of Parkinson’s.

          • KJM

            Somehow I was able to over look it. Being really stoned probably helped.

        • i listen to random episodes when going to bed every night. probably heard each episode 10 times, LOVE IT!

  • Guacamole Jim

    This article is hilarious. Also, Steel Panther sucks. Also, Kanye sucks more.

      • KJM

        When in doubt, blame the tapir.

    Steel Panther is the musical equivalent of a Family Guy episode, Kanye is legitimately a genius. Lol @ Steel Panther *flush*

  • Kim Jong Un’s Turkish Snowcone

    I love Steel Panther actually, especially given my obviously juvenile sense of humor. I do like a couple of Kanye’s tracks, but overall it’s definitely nothing new, especially considering one of his hits is nothing more than a karaoke version of a Daft Punk song. As per the basics of his music, it sounds like every other VNV Nation song out there with some half assed rapping on top.

  • zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    all people involved are douchebag libtard msm puppets–kanye is technically supposed to serve beck–who has huge family influence in the msm—
    the song “loser” is about social division–and justification for “eradication” of certain individuals–based off non constitutional social bullshit—-part of the first wave of the clinton controlled msm–that began in 93

    kanye=”bush hates white people”asskisser of clinton controlled msm—also coopeprorates with comedy central in population control/negative psychology promotion–fish dicks etc.
    —good guy with no brains—who gets away with “trolling” at msm events and awards shows–cuz of pc “race guilt”

    steel panther=”Sunset strip” mafia controlled=pc shit-tards—who need to kiss up to beck/and his family influence

    fuck all those motherfuckers—-the immature offspring/side effects of clinton controlled msm–trying to do “damage control” cuz beck is too much of a pussy==and was exposed on worldwide tv–live

    • KJM

      Bush = Clinton = Skull N Bones = CIA. FACT.

  • ChuggaChuggaDeedleyDoo

    I liked them better when they were a cover band

  • KJM

    The only useful thing that Kanye ever did was tell it like it is about the Bush Family.

      I didn’t take it personally. Yeezy and I are tight.

      That they are the glorious liberators of the world outside of Best Korea? We in Best Korea love Dubbya and want to invite him for a game of basketball sometime, and hopefully Darrek Rose since he’s been nursing that foot injury for 3 years now. I will touch it and magically heal it!

  • FLUSH you, Kanye
    FLUSH you, Steel Panther
    FLUSH you, Grammys

    Sincerely and with love,

    My manager is into Steel Panther. Late 40’s rock chick, perfectly intelligent, definitely not a crass dolt. Pretty sure she just likes the music because its nostalgic and doesn’t pay any attention to the lyrics, or at least I hope not.

    • Kim Jong Un’s Turkish Snowcone

      Oddly enough, they do seem to actually have groupies, and chicks dig them. Scratching my head on that one too.

      • Max

        Especially since the frontman is really nowhere near pretty enough to be a glam-metal singer.

        • Kim Jong Un’s Turkish Snowcone

          More groupies than Celtic Frost’s glam phase! What, you don’t think Tom was sexy in that ‘Cherry Orchards’ video?!

          • Max

            Tom was a damn sight better looking in Hellhammer than he was circa “Cherry Orchards”. Just my two cents.

          • Kim Jong Un’s Turkish Snowcone

            Lol, gotta love how he tried to look hot and glam in that video, but ended up looking like an angry toad with cotton candy on it’s head.

      • frozengoatsheadupanunsarse

        I’m guessing its a pheremone thing.

  • I’M ON VACATION!

    “MEH” to the highest degree. I guess I don’t hate them the way some people do. But I sure as shit don’t get the appeal. Nostalgia isn’t worth a damn thing if the music isn’t good.

  • I listened to the most recent Steel Panther album and thought it was pretty mediocre. On the other hand, there is a band who’s lyrics are more puerile than the one’s I write.

  • Simon “Djentcrusher” Phoenix

    Kayne West is a wiener who occasionally makes great music. Steel Panther are a bunch of unfunny talentless douchenuggets.

    Simon says nuke them both and listen to Enuff Z’nuff instead.

  • Count_Breznak

    This bears the question: Why draw attention to it ?

    • 1) This is trending news
      2) I thought it was relevant that the band that is supposedly calling Kanye West out for being a hypocrite, also called him a homophobic slur just a few years ago.
      3) I really, really hate Steel Panther’s schtick so I took the opportunity to make fun of them.

    • questioning Papa Joe… that’s a paddlin’

  • HessianHunter

    And that’s totally their right, much with black folks and the ‘n-word’. A big component of that is that when gay folks call each other honophobic slurs, it is absolutely 100% understood to be playful and an effective sneer at people who would try to use the word as a weapon, and that’s not always clear when the speaker is straight, no matter how progressive they are.

    • Ferris Mueller

      So… by that logic it’s okay for a cop to commit a petty crime because it’s understood they’re actually the ‘good guys’ and it’s just playful? Regardless, to those who say words are hurtful weapons, I say grow a goddamn spine. Never have I heard a ‘redneck’ or a ‘cracker’ say they’re ‘hurt’ by the euphemism. Yeah, some people are dicks; they always will be. If someone is so mentally weak that words actually cause them anguish then perhaps they actually need the verbal abuse to toughen the fuck up or else they’ll always be a weak, fragile doormat in business and life in general.

      • Yes, because petty crime and slur use are totally on the same level.

        And no one that got called a redneck or cracker was hurt by those words because they don’t carry the weight of hundreds of years worth of oppression.

  • Crazysaurus rex

    Steel Panther is a band that solely exists to party and have fun, you take them Way too seriously. Kanye, despite his occasionally good lyrics, is self-absorbed goddamned clown with a middle school crush on Beyonce. and trying to say that Panther’s opinion is irrelevant because Kanye is obviously better than them pretty negates the whole critic community, because that is the definition of the critics community

    • DoYouThinkHeSaurus

      I don’t believe it. I don’t believe it! You’re meant to come down here and defend me against these characters, and the only one I’ve got on my side is the blood-sucking lawyer!

      • Crazysaurus rex

        How do you know my favorite movie?

    Haha, @joethrashnkill:disqus I had a shit day at work, the only thing that kept me from losing patience with grinding my teeth was knowing that on the drive home I could, at the click of a button, have my mammoths ground.
    I grinded mammoths the entire way home.

  • Pagliacci is Kvlt O)))

    My disdain for Steel Panther knows no bounds, but after seeing Kanye on SNL40…I’d rather listen to Steel Panther.
