Steel Panther Destroys Nikki Sixx of Motley Crue on Twitter
Last week, Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx lashed out at Steel Panther, calling the group a “wanna be” band after Steel Panther’s vocalist Michael Starr made a joke about Crue singer Vince Neil in an interview with Little Punk People.
story continued below…
Sixx said Starr could “go expletive himself” after putting down Neil and later branded the band “backstabbers”.
teel Panther drummer Stix Zadinia responded after Sixx’s Twitter comments, saying: “Sounds like someone needs some expletive attention,” and added: “In order to stab someone in the back, you have to have been somewhat cordial to begin with.” Steel Panther toured with Motley Crue and Def Leppard in 2011 and Panther made it clear in the past that they felt unwelcome while touring with the Crue citing Nikki Sixx and Tommy Lee’s “Egos”
Steel Panther went full nuclear on social media.
The band then unearthed an interview with the Crue from when they were promoting their self-titled studio album with vocalist John Corabi in 1994 – several years after Neil left the group.
The clip shows Motley Crue responding to the news that Neil had sustained injuries during a jet-skiing accident – and their responses were pretty backstabby.
Steel Panther captioned the tweet with: “Hey Siri, what’s “backstabbing”? Check out the tweet and interview below!
Sixx has yet to respond.
Hey Siri, what's "backstabbing"?

Steel Panther and Motley Crue Get Into Feud
Following Steel Panther making a joke about Vince Neil in an interview with Little Punk People, Motley Crue’s Nikki Sixx blasted Steel Panther, calling the glam metal jokesters a “wanna be band” and “backstabbers.” Steel Panther’s drummer Stix Zadinia responded to Sixx with two tweets.
It started when Little Punk People asked Zadinia and singer Michael Starr who they’d like to bring back from the dead. Starr answer Motley Crue singer Vince Neil — who is still alive — and later clarified, “I’d bring back the Vince Neil from back in the day, because that guy is dead.”
This upset Sixx’s outrage, who also said “the singer in Steal [sic] Panther can go expletive himself,” which was ironic given that one of Steel Panther’s latest singles is titled, “All I Wanna Do Is Expletive(Myself Tonight).” Zadinia laughed it off in his first tweet, saying, “Sounds like someone needs some expletive attention.”
Steel Panther and Motley Crue toured together in 2011 when the two groups toured together alongside Def Leppard. Starr claimed that Crue hated Steel Panther and that the two sides had butted heads. Zadinia brushed off how his band may not necessarily be the “backstabbers” Sixx claims them to be. “In order to stab someone in the back, you have to have been somewhat cordial to begin with,” wrote the drummer in a second tweet.
See both tweets directly below.
Steel Panther’s new album, Heavy Metal Rules, was released earlier this year and the group is on tour through the end of the year. See their upcoming tour dates below.
