South Detroit Soundhouse “confronted” Starr and Zadinia about a leak concerning a Steel Panther acoustic live album that was coming out in February 2016 to which Starr replied (see 8:09 mark of video below): “[It’s] shocking to hear news like that. Yes. It’s not finalized but…” before Zadinia interrupted and stated, “You can’t say it but do this. If it’s true, blink once. If it’s false, blink twice” before advising Starr to only blink once. Starr went on to state, “Don’t tell the title but the title is really cool. We fought tooth and nail with the record label regarding the title because they wanted us to change it and I said [screaming] ‘No. I ain’t changing nothing!’ And we didn’t. So you’re going to love the title. It’s fucking sexy and it rhymes with Lexxi.”

Steel Panther are one of only two bands (along with Airbourne) to have their first three albums chart on both the Sleaze Roxx’s Top Ten Albums of the Year (2009, 2011 and 2014) and the Sleaze Roxx Readers’ Top 20 Albums of the Year (2009, 2011 and 2014).
