AceShowbiz - Steel Panther's guitarist Satchel has labelled BTS the "worst f****** s***" he's ever heard. The member of the comedic glam metal band ripped into the K-Pop boy band after listening to just two songs.
"Recently we went to Japan and I had a day to kill. I was trapped in my hotel room and somebody told me (South Korean boy band) BTS had sold out the Raiders stadium where I live in Vegas. I was like, 'No f****** way can this be happening - and why?' I had to figure it out. So I listened to two songs. It was the worst f****** s*** I've ever heard in my life," he said in a Q+A for Classic Rock magazine.
In the same feature, the 52-year-old rocker - whose real name is Russell John Parrish - said he wants his own band's song, the X-rated "Gloryhole", to be played at his funeral. He said, "I'd like to have Steel Panther songs played at my funeral, because they're pretty lighthearted and I don't want to have a depressing funeral. So I hope they play 'Gloryhole' really loud."
Meanwhile, the "Death to All but Metal" rockers - who formed in Los Angeles in 2000 - previously reassured fans that they will "continue to rock the world" following the departure of bassist Lexxi Foxx in 2021.
They wrote, "Steel Panther will continue to rock the world. And though we may not ever find a bassist quite as beautiful as Lexxi, it shouldn't be hard to find one to match his towering intellect. Good luck… And goodbye Lexxi Foxx!!"
