Steel Panther Respond To Controversy By Making Their Own ‘Pussy Melter’ Guitar Pedal

Written by Jackson Langford on August 8, 2018

Comedy metal band Steel Panther have responded to the backlash they received over ‘The Pussy Melter’ guitar effect, and they’ve done so by announcing a release of ‘Pussy Melter’ guitar pedals.

ICYMI, band member Satchel, in conjunction with Danish company TC electronic, released the guitar effect as a Toneprint download, and caused immediate backlash for sexist connotations.

A description of the pedal on TC Electronic’s website read in part: “When we met up with Steel Panther’s oh-so-humble guitarist, he had only one condition: that the tone be as wet as the ladies on the front row”.

Satchel then took to Twitter to say that they’ll be re-releasing the effect under a different name.

“I’m working overtime with TC Electronics to re-release the ‘pussy melter’ tone print under the less offensive, more politically correct name of the ‘Butthole Burner’,” he said.

“Don’t worry – it will still melt your pussy, ladies.”

Well, while the guitar effect has yet to see the light of day, the band has taken it upon themselves to release their own guitar pedal, under the name ‘Pussy Melter.’ It comes with knobs labeled ‘Dirty’, ‘Load’, ‘Booty’ and ‘Sizzle’, along with a switch with options ‘moist’ and ‘gushing.’

The band took to Twitter to explain the decision.

“We respect and love the freedom of speech afforded all citizens in the U.S. We support the right for all people to express themselves no matter where they are in the world,” the band wrote.

“We welcome all races, genders and sexual orientations at our shows – shows that celebrate everyone’s individuality through partying, and of course a love of heavy metal.”

“As clearly stated by Satchel when it was originally developed, the sound being created by the Pussy Melter tone pack was intended to bring pleasure to females who heard it.”

“Steel Panther is happy to announce that we are now offering pleasurable eargasms to everyone.”
