What else can be said about the year 2020 that hasn’t either been mumbled under ones face-protection wearing mask or screamed aloud in frustration once you’re safely in the confines of your home when you can take such a thing off your person. The guys in Steel Panther have tossed their hat into the mix with the new song “Fuck 2020” which has a video as well so you can check that out down below.
About The Video: This year has been fucking tough on everyone. We hope you enjoy the new song. It has become an anthem for the band – and not just because we wrote it. Please join us in telling 2020 to suck our collective dick.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: It’s without question that 2020 has been a horrible year for many of us and outside of the cancellation of shows and meetups and conventions, its also taken far too many people because of the virus and otherwise. This video was a lot of laughs but remember this is a no-nonsense time to be vigilant and cautious. I miss doing the things that I love to do quite a lot but there is no choice but to ride out the storm and wait for this all to pass. Right now our lives are mostly existing in the Internet with virtual conventions, concerts and live streams but this is better than nothing at all. We can also call each other in videos and do those Zoom calls and in WhatsApp and Skype so get used to it if you haven’t already. 2020 is over in a few weeks but is the aspect of it going to flow into 2021? You bet your sweet bippy it is. Be safe out there my friends, and keep some distance, isolate when possible for the safety of others and wear a face protection when among the masses. I’d like everyone I know to be around for the real time stuff. Oh yeah and if you want to talk about this funny video just chime in down in the comments section below. See you next time.
The Press Release:
California rock legends and effects pedal entrepreneurs Steel Panther continue to light the music instrument world on fire with the release of their newest guitar pedal – The Butthole Burner. Made in the USA, the latest distortion pedal from the collective brain trust features the exact same circuit as the now infamous Pussy Melter pedal. The new pedal has long been a rumor started by Panther guitarist Satchel and will become a reality when it ships to the public this summer. The limited production run Butthole Burner will retail for $199.99. Not immune to the effects of the current Covid-19 pandemic as their partying has come to a stop because drug dealers are not classified as essential personnel, Steel Panther has set up an interest free 4-month payment plan for all self-quarantined musicians that might want to purchase The Butthole Burner. Also, anyone that purchased the original Melter or last year’s Poontang Boomerang delay pedal will receive 10% off their purchase. Fans must be logged in to their Panther store account and use the code “Melter10” to receive the discount. Anyone who orders The Butthole Burner will be entered for a chance to win a limited number of “Golden Tickets” that comes with Penis Chili Pepper seeds (so purchasers can grow their own butthole burner peppers at home) and a $50 gift certificate to the band’s merch store. Pre-orders for The Butthole Burner are now available here: https://bit.ly/buttholeburner.
The official description of The Butthole Burner from Steel Panther is below:
“It’s Hot! It’s Spicy! It’s sexy and feisty!!! Ladies and gentlemen, Steel Panther presents The Butthole Burner. It’s a new version of the perfect distortion pedal. Built with the EXACT SAME circuit as the legendary Pussy Melter, The Butthole Burner is about to scorch eardrums across the world. If you couldn’t get in the front door last time, now it’s time to hit the backdoor!”
Steel Panther are currently sitting home practicing social distancing and self-gratification thanks to the Coronavirus. The band is planning to return to the road during some month that will kick off in some city with some other bands once the world returns to normal. In the meantime, they are working on ideas for all sorts of new things to better the lives of everyone affected by the pandemic. They recently launched an initiative to help out-of-work strippers affected by the global pandemic by posting about their performances on their socials with links for people to virtually “make it rain” from the comforts of their couches. They are also working on a 24-hour digital stream of adoptable pets as part of their Gods Of Pussy Animal Rescue Activation.

ABOUT STEEL PANTHER:
For the uninitiated, Steel Panther was formed in 2000 and is comprised of Michael Starr (lead singer), Satchel (guitarist), Lexxi Foxx (bass) and Stix Zadinia (drums). Hailing from Los Angeles, the epicenter for rock n’ roll in all its debauchery and glamour, Steel Panther has established themselves as the world’s premier party band, melding hard rock virtuosity with parody and criminally good looks. Steel Panther is a global phenomenon with four full-length albums, touring across the world, platinum-level You Tube status and high-profile television appearances such as Jimmy Kimmel Live, Larry King Now, and FOX NFL Sunday.

Followers of our adventures might recall this fun clip that was captured at the 2nd Annual “Fear The Riff” Guitar Expo. It shows a neighborhood guitarist jamming out on the “Pussy Melter”. Be sure to enjoy the clip and “Like” our page so you can see more things like this regularly.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: By now I am sure that all of the bands fans who sling that axe already have worn out both the “Pussy Melter” and the “Poontang Boomerang” effects pedals, so its the perfect time to order this new one. Of course, if you are just a collector of things related to the band and are stockpiling for later eBay selling you best act fast. With the Coronavirus Pandemic still in its alarming spread, there is no better time than now to pull out some tabs and practice. Why not use such a pedal to make you feel like you are standing on the big stage while throngs of the faithful toss their undergarments at you. I’m a drummer so this only applies to me in the collecting sense but sadly I missed out on the first pedal and the second. Maybe I will get this one or maybe I will just listen to the albums linked below for purchase and hammer away on the practice pad. That’s all I have to say about this one and I wonder what you think about it. Will you be ordering yourself the “Butthole Burner”? Chime in down below with your own thoughts and remember to stay healthy, keep socially distant and wash your hands. Since we are discussing Steel Panther here, you might want to wash them a couple of times. See you next time.
