84 Steel Panther Steel Panther Steel Panther is an American comedy glam metal band from Los Angeles, California, mostly known for their profane and humorous lyrics, as well as their exaggerated on-stage personae that parody the stereotypical 1980s "glam metal" lifestyle.

Yeah, because Arch Enemy aren't metal. I'd wager that many people that listen to metal would probably find their stuff too heavy. Go listen to some of their songs like Nemesis, Vultures or My Apocalypse and then tell me it isn't metal. - Porcupine

I personally think they are overrated and washed up since late 70's. But they are not poseurs. Nor did they Invent heavy metal but Doom metal and took It to the next level.

Dio, Priest, then Maiden and now Sabbath? Who made this?

Metallica is one of the metal bands that defined the genre. They can't be put on here if the have influenced and defined the metal genre and trash metal. Before you put anything on this list, or any list, do your research first - gegroh

Who was the idiot who put this here?

They had it all. They sold us out. They can't ever come back.

At least we still have albums, though. But hey, all bands leave eventually. - LostDream258

Mixed reactions on both sides, but they're a good band. - Metalhead1997
