Steel Panther Share Their Christmas Spirit With “The Stocking Song”
December 8, 2014
Steel Panther are showing their love for the Yule with “The Stocking Song”, a new track recorded during the group’s recent tour opening for Judas Priest.
“We bring happiness to millions of people around the world. Why not during the holidays?” frontman Michael Starr tells Billboard. “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.”
Adds bassist Foxx, “I like the holidays — I like to call them the highlidays. I’m definitely a Christmas kind of guy. For me, it snows all year ’round, if you know what I’m talking about. There’s always a bunch of snow, so I’m down with the holiday season. So when you listen to the song it’s about all kinds of cool presents you can get your chicks, or a chick, all kinds of bits and stocking stuffers that only we would think of.”
Foxx says “The Stocking Song”, available at digital outlets only, was suggested by guitarist Satchel during the Judas Priest tour, which 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 recalls. “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, meanwhile, was done in a backstage bathroom, where Foxx says, “the acoustics were great,” and finished in a hotel room.
