Review of If You Really Really Love Me Single by Steel Panther


Having broken through in 2009 this glam-metal outfit remain something of a cult band in the UK (their debut shifted a solid 45000 copies), but are something of a star attraction in their American homeland. On stage guests have included Dave Navarro, Vince Neil, Tom Morrello and Rupert Grint to name but a few and now the foursome are preparing the release of their second album, 'Balls Out'.

This lead single from Steel Panther's new record can be seen as a follow up to previous release 'Community Property', a power ballad on which Michael Starr declared love for his lady.while his manhood loved every lady. This time around we get an explanation of how the lady should love him, which amongst other things means not complaining about the amount of computer games played or when other ladies are brought home. The trademark humour and power chords are all present, but the lack of an anthemic chorus does let the song down a bit. Still, it is a welcome return for the Los Angeles quartet and indicates their winning formula first time around is still intact.
