For a bit of taped fun during the broadcast, the band ‘mistakenly’ turn up to FOX studios, revealing they were they were told they were headlining Thursday Night Football.

Unfortunately, Michael Strahan has to correct them, telling them the game is “Steelers-Panthers,” and that they wouldn’t be getting a headlining set.

While we don’t get a Steel Panther performance, we are treated to a bit of the FOX football theme music from guitarist Satchel and glam metal dress up from FOX analyst Terry Bradshaw!

Check out Steel Panther’s comedic clip below:
