Los Angeles glam metal act and recent Soundwave Festival additions Steel Panther are getting into the spirit of the festive season and have shared their new Christmas tune, The Stocking Song, filled with their trademark double-entendres, innuendos and a kazoo.
Bassist Lexxi Foxx told Billboard the track was suggested by guitarist Satchel during their recent US tour with Judas Priest and led to a full-band brainstorming session.
“We all sat around thinking about a bunch of bitchin’ things we can say about stocking some chick’s stocking,” the bassist said. “It was a lot of fun, actually — we took a couple hits of weed and we all got real focused that way and it turned out really cool.” The recording was reportedly done in a backstage bathroom and finished in a hotel room.
“We bring happiness to millions of people around the world. Why not during the holidays?” frontman Michael Starr added. “We love to spread the love. The holiday season is the best time to pick up strippers at a strip club. The ones that are working on Christmas Eve usually have no family and are really lonely. So it’s super easy to take them home and do some kissin’ underneath the camel toe.”
This week, Steel Panther were added to the Soundwave 2015 lineup and will join Faith No More, Slipknot, Marilyn Manson, Soundgarden and Smashing Pumpkins at the Australian summer festival.
