    Anthrax is obviously awsome, I discovered their awsomeness a couple months ago... I feel so metal head now.

    Anyways, what is your favorite song by Anthrax?

    I'm torn between "Indians" "Metal Thrashing Mad" and "Death Rider"

    I am the man. The 1st one with no radio edit. Way ahead of its time.

    I guess I was talking about a metal band doing a "rap" thing. Not a rap or hip hop band doing a rock song.

  8. Stand or Fall
    Skeletons in the Closet (awsome bass line!)
    Finale’ (which has the best Anthrax lyric of them all: "I drank three six packs just so I could look at your face")

    Easily "I'm The Man," or "I Am The Law."

    "Bring The Noise" was cool too.

    It's funny that two of the songs you listed as favorites are covers.

    I like all of the albums up to and including Persistence Of Time
    I would really have to brain storm to figure out my favorite song ever
     
  11. Without a doubt..."Antsocial"!

    Although I am a fan since the early days, I prefer the John Bush era.

    Maybe Only or Piss And Vinegar.

    Bush over Belladonna? Why?

    Well, ever heard Belladonna sing live? (check the Killer A's DVD).

    John Bush eats him alive, and I think they've grown as a band since he joined. I just prefer a good rock voice over a high-pitched 80s metal voice.

    Also, I'm a closet Armored Saint fan. :D

    Oh, Black Dahlia is another great song.
