Revolver magazine conducted an interview with METALLICA, SLAYER, MEGADETH and ANTHRAXfor a special issue devoted to the “Big Four” of 1980s thrash metal.
When asked to name his favorite ANTHRAX song, METALLICA drummer Lars Ulrich said, “There’s so many. I don’t know, the cover they did of ‘Antisocial’ [off 1988’s ‘State Of Euphoria’] by [French rock band] TRUST is obviously great. ‘Got The Time’, [off 1990’s ‘Persistence Of Time’] which is a cover originally by [English new-wave artist] JOE JACKSON was awesome. ‘Only’, which they did on the first record with [vocalist] John Bush [1993’s ‘Sound Of White Noise’] was great. There’s tons of them, so I don’t even know where to start. Fuck. I was up in the mountains the other day, skiing somewhere, and PUBLIC ENEMY came and played, so I went down and saw them. They played ‘Bring the Noise’, [which PUBLIC ENEMY re-recorded with ANTHRAX in 1991] which was cool to hear.”
