In 2008, Metal Skool changed their name to Steel Panther.
Steel Panther is a Los Angeles, California based glam metal parody band founded by former LA Guns vocalist Ralph Saenz (Michael Starr). Mostly known for their profane and humorous lyrics, as well as their exaggerated on-stage personae that reenact the stereotypical 1980s "glam metal" lifestyle. Originally formed as “Metal Skool” and “Metal Shop” they’re known for their energetic live show, the longest running metal show on the Sunset Strip.
On stage, the band both pays tribute to and lampoons the heyday of 80’s glam metal.
