  • We'll leave it to you to find out what a glory hole is (just make sure you're in privacy mode when you do), but we will tell you what Steel Panther guitarist Satchel told us when we asked if the band had any firsthand experience with them.

    "It's based on stuff that happens to us all the time," he said, adding that he's never had a bad experience with one. "We're one of those bands that likes to do that kind of stuff together. Hey, we're all in Bangkok tonight, we're on tour, we don't have anywhere to go. Let's actually go to a whorehouse or a glory hole and have sex with random people behind a wall."
  • The music video, like the song, is not for the easily offended. Directed by Frankie Nasso, it's a very literal depiction of the lyric, set in a bathroom visited by all sorts of characters. Nasso is best-known for his work with Asking Alexandria; he directed their clips for "The Death of Me" and "Breathless."
