The satyrs are major party animals. These little dudes spend most of their time rocking it out with their patron god Pan and the god Dionysus, who invites the satyrs to every one of his wild Bacchanals. Back in the day, the Greeks thought of satyrs as having the ears, tails, and sometimes legs of a horse or donkey. Later on, though, the Romans considered fauns, their versions of satyrs, to be more like Pan, with goat legs, pointy beards, and horns. Whatever they looked like, everybody agrees that what satyrs loved best was to drink, dance, play music, and get it on with every willing (or not-so-willing) nymph who happened to be around. Like we said: party animals.
