PINK STEEL makes heavy metal gay, and gay heavy metal funny as hell--blurring the lines between music, comedy, Motley Crue and Mary Poppins to create a fabulous, fist-pumping arena rock concert experience that will leave you singing tunes like "We Fight For Cock" and "Sausage Party" for days.

Biography

The crossover mock 'n roll meltdown that is PINK STEEL co-mingles gay culture and heavy metal bluster with punch-line songwriting and outlandish performance--giving the audience front row seats to a stadium-style rock show unlike any other.

Their new album, the party-metal opus OUT AT THE DEVIL, is jam-packed with 80s metal thunder and inspired bitchiness.

Released August 25, 2007 (Rob Halford's birthday), OUT AT THE DEVIL reaffirms PINK STEEL's status as the true leaders of Gay Heavy Metal At Its Hardest. OUT AT THE DEVIL was produced by Pete Kohl (Princess Superstar, Double Dong & Wyld Lyxx) and Mastered by Steve Fallone (Scorpions, Rainbow, TV On The Radio).

Hailed by fans as "The Pink and Black Bareback Attack," The ersatz German trio take heavy metal's bluster and spandex, reverse the gender preference, and turn it into standing ovations at theater stages and rock venues alike.

In 1983, Udo Von DuYu met PINK STEEL vocalist Hanson Jobb in a smoky Bremen bathhouse/nightclub, where Udo was recovering after his lover left him for a cantaloupe with a hole cut in it. Hanson, who had just finished "chatting" in the back room with several Nigerian wrestlers, recognized the forlorn Von DuYu from their high school swim team. The rest--as documented in the power ballad "Two Men Enter, One Man Loves"--is Gay Heavy Metal history.

SAUSAGE PARTY
©2002 Ken Grobe

HEY!
HEY!
HEY!
HEY!
No Girls!
Just Boys!
Weˆre gonna throw a sausage party that the men will enjoy!

A sausage man
Is hard to find
Put your parts on the table
And get ready to grind!
Put your hand on the crank
If you want a treat
We donˆt care what you put in it
Just as long as itˆs meat!

[CHORUS]
You can send in the army
You can call in the cops
But when the party starts
IT CANˆT STOP! (canˆt stop!)
You can lock us in jail
Thow us out on the streat
BUT YOUˆLL NEVER DEFEAT THE MEAT

No Girls!
Just Boys!
Weˆre gonna throw a sausage party that the men will enjoy!

[SOLO]

We got Porky in leather
And Spanky in studs
Weˆre the heavy-metal-he-man-
-women-haterˆs-club!
Bcause the men will do
what the women canˆt
We donˆt want a dairy farm
We want a meat-packinˆ plant!

[CHORUS]
You can send in the army
You can call in the cops
But when the party starts
IT CAN©ˆT STOP! (canˆt stop!)
You can lock us in jail
Thow us out on the street
BUT YOUˆLL NEVER DEFEAT THE MEAT
No Girls!
Just Boys!
Weˆre gonna throw a sausage party that the men will enjoy!

[SOLO]

So clap your hands!
And have some fun!
Weˆre linkinˆ up the sausages
One-by one!
Got the Pink Steel Rockinˆ
Till the last man falls
If you like our sausage party
Youˆll love our big balls!

No Girls!
Just Boys!
Weˆre gonna throw a sausage party that the men will enjoy!

No Girls!
Just Boys!
Weˆre gonna throw a sausage party that the men will enjoy!

HEY!

COCK FIGHT!

Written By: PINK STEEL

COCK FIGHT
©2004 Ken Grobe

In the rough part of the city
In the back of a bar
Money's changin' hands
In a room full of man
Waitin' for the action to start

Well they're flashin' their bankrolls
And they're bettin' the spread
In a ring late at night
A crowd of men see the sight
Of two cocks goin' head to head

[CHORUS]
It's a COCK FIGHT
Danger abounds
Two cocks come up
But one's goin' down

COCK FIGHT
Better wish 'em luck
Two cocks enter
but one...one is gettin' plucked.

COCK! FIGHT!
One'll be the winner
COCK! FIGHT!
One'll be my dinner

Well the heat gets oppressive
And the smell makes you gag
When the dirt turns to mud
With more feathers and blood
Than Phyllis Diller on the rag

Smell the smell of the cock-ring
Feel your juices start to flow
With baited breath
At the smell of death
You won't rest until one cock crows

[CHORUS]
It's a COCK FIGHT
Danger abounds
Two cocks come up
But one's goin' down

COCK FIGHT
Better wish 'em luck
Two cocks enter
but one...one is gettin' plucked.

COCK! FIGHT!
One'll be the winner
COCK! FIGHT!
One'll be my dinner

[SOLO]

The tension mounts to the final count
As one cock inches from the pen
To the victor the spoils
To the loser--hot oil!
As he's turned into chicken for the men.

If you find yourself in the backroom
Where the cash changes hands
And the cocks come out
You've got to scream and shout
As long and loud as you can

[CHORUS]
It's a COCK FIGHT
Danger abounds
Two cocks come up
But one's goin' down

COCK FIGHT
Better wish 'em luck
Two cocks enter
but ONE...?

CONVERTER

Written By: ©2004 Grobe & Brewer

You've got a hetro life
With some boring wife
But I know deep down you're a Liar
'Cause you go to the gym "for the workout"
And watch Sigfried and Roy "for the tigers"

You've built your walls
So straight and tall
But no barrier can protect you
Now your hetro town's
Burning to the ground
And I'm swooping down to erect you

You think you're straight
But just you wait!
CONVERTER

You've gone round the world
With all kinds of girls
You're a man's man well that's what I'm hopin'
Just some words from me
And a six-pack or three
We'll see how far your principles open

You're built to breed
'Til I plant the seed
CONVERTER

[MAGICAL SPELL]

Your straightness...shall begin to ebb
Once you're snared...in my pink web
Eye of newt...and hair of style
And while you're at it...sniff this vial!

Wing of bat and line of meth
(and take this mint--it's for your breath)
Warming up where you once froze
Feel the rhythm--strike a pose

Here's your lotion--and your cream
Welcome to the other team
Smooth of chest and bare of thigh
Plucked of brow and queer of eye

Inhibition's...gone--to--stay
Presto change-o...NOW--YOU'RE--GAY!

You're a soldier man
From Afghanistan
Don't ask don't tell me you don't want some
Just take my hand
And I'll have you stand-
-ing at full attention in a condom

You'll kick and scream
'Til you're on my team
CONVERTER

You think you're straight
But just you wait!
CONVERTER
