Metallica’s Lars Ulrich Reveals His Favorite Songs By Anthrax

In honor of the hugely anticipated Big Four concert at Yankee Stadium in New York City on September 14, Revolver and Guitar World are celebrating the Big Four Weeks leading up to the show. Our websites will be giving fans eye-popping exclusives, previously unseen backstage video, excerpts from our interviews with the bands—including those in Revolver’s special issue devoted to the Big Four, which you can buy right here—and much, much more. Additionally, Revolver’s September/October issue (available here) features collectible trading cards, which you can view here.

While making the Big Four issue, we talked to some of the Big Four’s most heralded musicians about their favorite songs from the other bands. Today, Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich tells us about his favorite Anthrax songs.

“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 rerecorded with Anthrax in 1991] which was cool to hear.”

    Lars, go listen to proper Anthrax songs, not their covers. You may learn a trick or two from Benante.

    Antisocial?  I can’t think of a song that I skip more often!  Lars doesn’t know shit about Anthrax.  Gung Ho, Medusa, Be All End All, Imitation of Life, Belly of the Beast, etc etc….

    Guys, stop calling him a douche.  Calling him a douche implies that he might get close to a vagina, which we all know is far from the truth.

  • Hempster

    So he doesn’t like any of their originals before Bush…What a scumbag!!!

  • Metalwatchmen1495

    Ya uh Lars…. Anthrax had many other great songs, with or without John Bush.

    So you guys realize that you’re sounding just a douchey as Lars right now, right? I mean just because he doesn’t like the same songs as you that makes him a douche? And to top it all off, I’m pretty sure he and the rest of Metallica know a little bit more about Anthrax than any of us, considering the bands have known each other for nearly thirty years or so. So get off your freaking high horses.

    Damn,he picked some real crap ones. He probably never even listened to them. I’ve got people who are friends but they play in bands I hate so I would never listen to them.

    How can we take anything seriously about anything thrash metal that comes out of the mouth of a man who’s in a band that hasn’t released a true metal song since 1988. To paraphrase the late great George Carlin, “Lars is currently attempting to be the first man to cross the Atlantic in a gas filled douchebag”, that gas filled douchebag being James Hetfield.
