STEEL PANTHER Plays Special 'Secret' Show At The Viper Room As JAM PRANCER (Video)

On Wednesday, August 13, Los Angeles glam-metal jokesters STEEL PANTHER played a special "secret" concert at The Viper Room in West Hollywood, California as part of the venue's 21st-anniversary week of shows. The band, formerly known as DANGER KITTY, METAL SHOP and METAL SKOOL, performed an eight-song set under the name JAM PRANCER.

According to Joe Dolan of, STEEL PANTHER frontman Michael Starr told the crowd: "It's great to be back at The Viper Room after more than ten years. It still smells like B.O and wet pussy, just the way we remember it!"

The setlist was as follows:

01. Down Boys (WARRANT cover)
02. Round & Round (RATT cover)
03. We're Not Gonna Take It (TWISTED SISTER cover)
04. Runnin' With The Devil (VAN HALEN cover)
05. Livin' On A Prayer (BON JOVI cover)
06. Girl From Oklahoma (STEEL PANTHER original)
07. Paradise City (GUNS N' ROSES cover)
08. Pour Some Sugar On Me (DEF LEPPARD cover)

Video footage of the entire concert — courtesy of — can be seen below.

Throughout the night, the band insisted that they were not performing as STEEL PANTHER due to their management's financial take of their earnings should they mention the name of the band. While the running joke popped up many times during the performance, fans were actually able to take home a new piece of memorabilia — a JAM PRANCER t-shirt that featured a double unicorn logo under a sparkly rainbow.

The band will return to California as STEEL PANTHER in November when they hit the road as the openers for JUDAS PRIEST.

STEEL PANTHER's third album, "All You Can Eat", sold around 13,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 24 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD arrived in stores on April 1 via Open E/KLS.
