image for Metal Band Steel Panther Awarded Nobel Prize....ish Accolade

Amsterdam, Netherlands-- In the shadow of Mondays announcements of this years Nobel Prize recipients in Stockholm, Sweden, a much lesser known yet equally prestigious set of awards were doled out a mere 1400 km away in the Netherlands. Metal band Steel Panther were among the recipients of this award for their musical contributions to the world of medicine.

The heavy metal powerhouse quintet were the recipients of the "Nobal" prize. A lesser known bastard sibling of the Nobel prize which is awarded to individuals or groups that have also had significant contributions to their given fields but overlooked by the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences.

"Steel Panther's music has had a great impact in the areas of cancer research, erectile dysfunction, and infertility." commented Nobal commitee representative Olaf Mefugenazoff. "We were not going to let their contributions go unnoticed, they were obviously robbed of the Nobel Prize."

We were unable to reach the members of the band proper for comment, although we did get a statement from part-time occasional guest drummer when they are in the Greater Philadelphia Area, Tommy "Tom Tom" Thompson. "I am very proud of these guys, and I think it's awesome that they let me play a song with them occasionally. It's about time that they get the recognition for the medical breakthroughs that they have been come to known as. I tweeted Stix earlier congratulating them. Hopefully I might hear back in 3 or 4 days, you know, when he takes a break from bangin' and doing blow. Now if you'll excuse me, I have to accidentally shave off my beard for a photo shoot."

Steel Panther are currently getting ready to embark on a US tour, in further support for their Balls Out cd. The tour will bring them to the Tower Theater in Philadelphia, PA on Nov, 23rd. Maybe they will bring their award with them, and possibly let Tommy sit in for a song. But in the meantime, congratulations Steel Panther, you guys deserve it!
