Steel Panther is mistaken for Mötley Crüe by Amazon Prime because of documentary artwork

On the streaming site, Nikki Sixx’s official band logo appears over a press shot of the LA comedy-rock trio. The gaffe was pointed out by a fan on social media, who asked: “Who’s gonna tell them?” Oddly enough, one of the real Mötley Crüe members can be seen in the top right corner of the cover.

The clip has since been reposted on Michael Starr’s official Instagram page – check it out below. Steel Panther – comprised of Satchel and Stix Zadinia – parodies glam-rock groups from the 1980s, and they’ve had beef with Mötley Crüe in the past.


During an interview in 2019, Michael Starr said he would like to “bring Vince Neil [Mötley Crüe vocalist] back from the grave.”. “I’d bring back the Vince Neil from back in the day, because that guy is dead,” Starr responded when drummer Stix Zadinia reminded him that Starr was still alive.

This prompted Sixx to tweet in defense of Starr, telling him to “go fück himself”. A Mötley Crüe fan praised Neil’s charisma, and Sixx responded: “That’s why Steel Panther is assholes.”. They’re backstabbers.”


The Stadium Tour is currently underway with Poison, Joan Jett, and The Blackhearts as well as Def Leppard in North America. As of 2018, it is the band’s first tour since reuniting (see upcoming dates).

Special guest Machine Gun Kelly appeared at the group’s Atlanta, Georgia, opening show, who plays Tommy Lee in the upcoming biopic The Dirt.
