Following up the first On the Prowl single "It's Never Too Late (To Get Some Pussy Tonight)," Steel Panther have just debuted a music video for the new song "1987," which is the ultimate '80s tribute (except for one thing). Also newly unveiled is a bunch of 2023 tour dates.

The "1987" video opens up with two kids rummaging through an abandoned recording studio. One, who bears a strong resemblance to a much younger and somehow even better looking Michael Starr, plugs into a Steel Panther guitar pedal labeled "1987" and we get a shot of Steel Panther bathed in filter that really adds to the vintage video aesthetic.

Lyrically, Panther name-check a bunch of late '80s favorites — Guns N' Roses, Poison, Whitesnake, Dokken, Ozzy Osbourne — while lamenting aspects of today's music landscape, which includes YouTube trolls, "snappy chats" and cancel culture.

It's a cheeky track that opens with acoustic whimsy and has a typical power ballad structure to play into the twinkling nostalgia.

But, wait a minute... is Satchel wearing a Gojira shirt?! Hmm... something is off there! The French extreme metal unit has a 25-plus year history and, hey, we love 'em too, Satchel! Given Satchel's notoriously high intelligence level, he probably had the foresight that Gojira were going to be a great band even before those guys first thought about starting a band. Damn, that guy is good.

Steel Panther have also announced additional 2023 tour dates with a North American run featuring support from Crobot and Tragedy set to kick off on Feb. 24, the same day their new album, On the Prowl, comes out. Pre-order the record here and view all of the tour dates, which includes stops in the U.K. and Ireland as well, beneath the "1987" video. For tickets, head to Steel Panther's website.

Steel Panther, "1987" Lyrics (via AZ Lyrics)

Appetite for destruction
Blowing us all away
Poison looking so damned good
I wondered if I was gay
Whitesnake making us bang our heads
In the still of the frickin' night
Coverdale banging Tawney Kitaen
And the world all felt just right

I never wanna leave you
When you told me I was in my prime
Why didn't I believe you?
And the music scene will never be the same
But I didn't realize that things could get this lame

Dokken and Lynch were young and hot
They were warriors in a dream
I couldn't understand the Loudness dude
But man that guy could scream
Ozzy was on the Crazy Train
Biting heads off bats
It was long before the YouTube trolls
And this bullshit snappy chats

You're always gonna be the best
Like fresh Colombian cocaine
Off a 19 year old breast
And the kids these days will never understand
What it's like to play an instrument and be in a band

Growing out our hair
Gettin' high with girls
Cranking Scorpions and Priest
Everyone in leather
There never was a doubt
In any of our minds that pretty soon
Dave and Eddie
Were getting back together

Where did we go astray?
Back then the friends we had were real
And we saw 'em every day
And no one once got canceled for the things that they say

Will forever be the year
When guys wore more lipstick than girls
And no one seemed to care
And the music that we worshipped will live on
Even after all our heavy metal heroes are gone
