    Roar of the Panther - Steel Panther singer Michael Starr talks scamming chicks backstage and hanging with Nickelback's Chad Kroeger.

    Hunx & His Punx

    This coed Oakland, California, garage-pop band is like a trashy, albeit imaginary, John Waters movie come to life, if the king of the campily grotesque decided to try his hand at teen flicks. Sassy lead singer Seth "Hunx" Bogart sings about cruising,...
